patch Tuesday february

Hi all
Here is your patch Tuesday roundup
Ms released several updates for security bypass man in the middle, remote and other info attacks.
All of these cover windows and office.
additionally update 4 of visual c 2012/2013 runtimes is out and this is needed as well as to fix security issues to fix some runtime errors.
A new security client update is out, and updates to the kernel and graph engines.

Note, this has happened on 3 systems so far so I think the instructions are valid.
On both 32 and 64 bit systems this will happen and you need to follow each of these correctly.
1 on both
Run windows update as usual and install all updates.
You will receive a weird error at some stage and be told to restart, do so.
Note on some systems the system will take ages to restart but will eventually do so.
Run windows update
On x64 systems there will be an important update to run
check it if its not and install it.
Restart.
you should now have no updates to install.
if you have a virus def to install you can do this if you want.
check for updates
install the important ie update.
restart
and you should be good to go.
On x86 systems, after first restart you will have 2 updates to install.
install them and restart.
Keep going back to windows update and installing the 1 important update till it goes away restarting all the time I had to do this 5 times on each system.
Finally install the ie update and you are done.
A small note, flash was released earlier this month.
You may or may not as the case may be after updating flash need to remove flash activex and reinstall it on all platforms mine wouldn’t play videos, it still doesn’t play anything bar youtube but it stopped playing that.
To get flash the easiest way for us is to go to codecguide.com and follow the flash heading click download then download and or run the 2 msi installers.
you will have to close down your brouser before they actually install but they will work.
