    For those of you that applied the re-release of MS12-078, a system restart (reboot) is required.

    Now that the end of the world is past tense I wanted to ask you guys some simple questions. :blink:

    Why is it that MS needs to issue fixes to their o/s software?

    They should in my view by now KNOW how to produce one has next to no holes, no flaws in security at all.

    I recently restored an image W7 64 bit from 2 years back then updated. I got 260+ fixes. Then it hit me!

    As well they invent EMET which has mitigations in it for common hacker and virus methods. Why not build these mitigations into the o/s?

    I must be missing something.
