Microsoft "fixes" Internet Explorer

Microsoft is urging its users to download a cumulative software patch that corrects at least three major security issues in its standard Web browser, Internet Explorer.

If you're not sure if you should perform this update, check the July 2004 Windows Security Update page by clicking here. Hopefully if you use a PC, you are familiar with the update process, but if not, it's pretty easy to do. Just find Windows Update under the Start menu, and follow the directions.

If you're wondering why Microsoft always has so many critical updates, you're not the only one. Apparently Bill Gates wants to turn security into a sales opportunity, instead of actually providing something that should be nearly obvious. In other words, good luck!
