    May 2016 Windows security update release


    Today we released security updates to provide additional protections against malicious attackers. As a best practice, we encourage customers to apply security updates as soon as they are released.

    More information about this month’s security updates and advisories can be found in the Security TechNet Library.

    I just wanted to remind members/users, that MRT(Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool) runs automatically after installation in the background. If you wish to view the log open up the run dialog and copy paste %windir%\debug\mrt.log into it. And NotePad will open up with the log:
    Click image for larger version
    I like to run it a 2nd time to visually watch(that's why you see it twice in my log), but you can just view the log to see if it ran.

    I thought I'd mention this, with all the dangerous stuff out there these days
