Well M$ has made it official that there will be no more Security Update Notices to ones e-mail inbox. Now they will come thrugh RSS Feeds, see below.

I am just what is going on as the last links seems to say one can still get notices...


BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA256

************************************************** ******************
Title: Microsoft Security Notifications
Issued: June 27, 2014
************************************************** ******************

Notice to IT professionals:

As of July 1, 2014, due to changing governmental policies concerning
the issuance of automated electronic messaging, Microsoft is
suspending the use of email notifications that announce the
following:

* Security bulletin advance notifications
* Security bulletin summaries
* New security advisories and bulletins
* Major and minor revisions to security advisories and bulletins

In lieu of email notifications, you can subscribe to one or more of
the RSS feeds described on the Security TechCenter website.

For more information, or to sign up for an RSS feed, visit the
Microsoft Technical Security Notifications webpage at

Technical Security Notifications from Microsoft.

Other Information
=================

Follow us on Twitter for the latest information and updates:
http://twitter.com/msftsecresponse

Recognize and avoid fraudulent email to Microsoft customers:
================================================== ===========
If you receive an email message that claims to be distributing
a Microsoft security update, it is a hoax that may contain
malware or pointers to malicious websites. Microsoft does
not distribute security updates via email.

The Microsoft Security Response Center (MSRC) uses PGP to digitally
sign all security notifications. However, it is not required to read
security notifications, security bulletins, security advisories, or
install security updates. You can obtain the MSRC public PGP key at

https://technet.microsoft.com/security/bulletin/pgp.

To receive automatic notifications whenever Microsoft Security
Bulletins and Microsoft Security Advisories are issued or revised,
subscribe to Microsoft Technical Security Notifications on

Technical Security Notifications from Microsoft.

So this will be the last of my update & info notices.

Windows 9: Here’s the Start Menu We’ve Been Waiting For


By Todd Haselton | July 23, 2014



Microsoft ditched the Start menu when it launched Windows 8, instead pushing users into its “Modern UI” tile-based interface. Windows users are clamoring for Microsoft to add it back, however, and right now we’re expecting it to hit with Windows 9 sometime next year. We already saw a sneak peak of what the new Start menu will look like back in April, but these new leaked screenshots from myce are much clearer.

As we already know, Microsoft is going to use the Start menu to provide access to Modern UI apps, you can see the widgets for Weather, Calendar, Bing Health and a couple of other applications hanging off to the side of the menu. You’ll also be able to much more quickly access the power off, shut down and restart options, and see all of your applications in one easy-to-read list, as we were all accustomed to seeing before Windows 8 hit.

We definitely can’t wait for Microsoft to push out this update. As for anyone wondering why the shots say Windows 8.1 Pro — The Verge said that’s just a placeholder for Windows 9, or whatever Microsoft eventually plans to call it when it’s launched next year.

Default Re: Software and web stuff, tweaks etc...

I still get these notices for the new updates... Yet yesterday around 11 AM M$
released this months updates..... At first you will see red and a warning saying
unsuccessful.
Yet IGNORE this and select on the updater "TRY AGAIN" and all will be well.

M$ 7 and below has 13 or less updates. M$ 8 & 8.1 have 19 each includes the

Malicious Software Tool... Which I just go to the site and download the entire tool so there is NO daily update. Now you can take out of your D/L location the newer M$ Tool and place it on your desk top for daily or weekly use.

Here is the site: Free Malware Removal Tool | Anti-Malware Scan Software

1. Download and save to your location you usually use for other D/L.. In this process you click each page. The first is skip and go to D/L unless you want to read it all.
Second on page two is several offers for MS Word etc. And near the bottom right is NO THANKS which I select. And on the third page select the Download .

2. Once the download is completed {a few seconds] delete the last months MS Tool. And after this you can retrieve the new Tool and place it on your desk top for daily/weekly use.

Yet I just tried it on this site and it took 2 pages... Yet I am replacing this page with the one I selected several years ago.
