    Woody always refers to updates to windows as MS #-### but all the updates I see on the updates page have codes starting with KB. So I don't know whether it's safe to install them. Is there a relationship between the MS and KB updates. I use Vista. thanks

    A number such as MS09-054 indicates a Microsoft Security Bulletin; 09 is the year and 054 is the sequence number within the year.

    If you search Google or Bing for ms09-054, you'll easily find the security bulletin:

    You'll find the KB number in the bulletin:
