Microsoft released new patches for critical Windows and Microsoft Office vulnerabilities on October 9, 2007.
* All Windows PCs must be patched. *
To patch your PC:

If you do not have such an icon, run Windows Update by going to the site:http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com

After patching, you must reboot your PC in order for the patches to take effect.
If you are using Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 or Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007, you should apply the update at:http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/MS07-059.mspx
If you are using Microsoft Office 2004 on a Macintosh, you should install the Microsoft Office 2004 for Mac 11.3.8 Update:http://www.microsoft.com/mac/downloads.aspx#Office2004
