Windows Patch Update
Microsoft hasn't had the best of times lately as far as Windows updates are concerned. Users are rightly and royally fed up with updates that break things, including Windows Defender most recently. Yet security updates are released for a reason, and Windows 10 users ignore them at their peril. Not updating can leave systems open to critical zero-day exploits like this one that's out in the wild, or the now-infamous "Complete Control" hack attack. So when Microsoft takes the unusual step of telling Windows 10 users to install one critical update before installing the remaining October cumulative updates, it's probably best to follow that advice.
