    Many IT Pros know that Microsoft releases their monthly Patch Tuesday security updates as a downloadable ISO image each month as a tool that can be used by IT departments to manually update local systems.

    Well did you also know that Microsoft has all of these images listed in a single Knowledge Base (KB) article?

    • Manage large multinational organizations
    • Must download multiple individual language versions of each security update

    As I was browsing through my RSS feeds this morning I saw a link to the August ISO download and decided to check out the Related Resources link,, that was provided in the KB article.

    Fantastic article. Thanks!

    I thought it was going to be a Guinness Record story. Like some old timer refuses to give up his 2400 baud modem etc..

I just bought a new PC Windows 8 Basics. I would like to install a security protection from Microsoft but what version do I have to install ? I tried Defense but they said this is already included in my PC. Do I have to install something else ?
