Spring Cleaning: 5 New Windows Patches Coming
Microsoft is alerting customers that it plans to release at least five new security fixes for Windows users next Tuesday.

In the meantime, if you're a Windows user, you can make sure your machine has all the latest patches by regularly visiting Windows Update (that site will only work in Internet Explorer). If you want to let Microsoft download and install patches for you automatically when they become available, see Microsoft's instructions on how to enable automatic updates.
