The known issues

Okay we geeks don’t read.  Fine.  I understand that.


But every month it’s like the security bulletin people do not want us to read.  In EACH bulletin IF there is issues with the security patches that they know about there is a little link for known issues.  This month has to be the WORST for following the bread crumbs to where they explain what the known issues are.

    Why my computer is not letting me update de Security Update for Microsoft Office Word 2003 (KB982134). I downloaded it through Windows Update, but it failed. I tried several times and did not work.

    Am I under the risk of having a bug downloading my contact info?

    Thanks for your guidance.
