    I recommend you read AskWoody before downloading or installing.

    Stuart, DenGar is just reporting that there are new updates out there - no solution requested, or needed. Your link refers to an ongoing issue with WGA - none of which are part of this latest round of updates.

    "an ongoing issue with WGA - none of which are part of this latest round of updates"

    Well, it was most certainly a part of the latest round of updates which I (and many others) received and had problems with. There are many posts on the MS Windows Update Newsgroups about this particular issue.

    Re: 21 Microsoft Security Patches

    I am not arguing that at all - The WGA program is a farce - and certainly deserves much attention. I am just saying that there was no WGA update released yesterday as part of Microsoft's Security updates summary for June 2006 (also shown in DenGars link and the AskWoody link) - and that DenGar was only pointing out that new patches were out. If you had an WGA update, then it was only because you did not upgrade your system when the last WGA upgrade came out.

    That's all - not trying to start anything here - just saying this topic is not about the WGA fiasco.

    Re: 21 Microsoft Security Patches

    Yes I realize that Dennis. Many of us don't have automatic updates turned on. For many of us then, the WGA update was included in Tuesday's downloads and for many of us, it was problematic. That's what Stuart's post referred to and that's all I was trying to point out.
