Patch Tuesday - No Critical Updates!

Microsoft Patch Tuesday is the second Tuesday of each month (Jan 14th this time around), and is the scheduled release date for security updates affecting Windows and other Microsoft products. It is also the scheduled release day for security updates for Adobe products, through an agreement between Microsoft and Adobe. Notably, there are only two more Patch Tuesdays until support ends for Windows XP on April 8th - then you are on your own. Microsoft has no critical items in this month's crop of updates, although there seem to be quite a few unspecified fixes for Windows 8.1. Following on a few flaky Windows Updates recently, you may even want to wait 24 or 48 hours to download them and install the patches - in case there are any serious problems with the updates.
