Microsoft said it will patch at least 14 vulnerabilities next week, including four in Internet Explorer (IE), making it three months in a row that the company has plugged holes in its browser. Of the nine updates set for Aug. 14, five will be labeled "critical," the most serious of the four ratings Microsoft uses. The other four will be pegged "important," the next-lower threat ranking.

I recently installed win 7 Home Premium on a home built computer. MSI 760GM mobo,AMD quad core 3.0 ghz processor, 16 gig DDR3 ram, Nvidia 8400, 512 meg video card, and a 600 watt power supply. I have XP, win 7, PCLinuxOS, and Peppermint one Linux installed on a 500 gig HD. My question is, I got 3 updates on Monday, and one update today on win 7. Is this normal to get updates out of cycle? I was under the impression that updates were once a month.
