Happy New Year everyone!
Has it been 14 years already since the September 11 attacks..?
Yes! 14 years ago the US was attacked by terrorists.. for what?
Five hijackers crashed American Airlines Flight 11 into the northern facade of the World Trade Center’s North Tower (1 WTC)
another five hijackers crashed United Airlines Flight 175 into the southern facade of the South Tower (2 WTC)
Five hijackers flew American Airlines Flight 77 into the Pentagon
A fourth flight, United Airlines Flight 93, under the control of four hijackers, crashed near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, southeast of Pittsburgh, after the passengers fought the hijackers. Flight 93’s target is believed to have been either the Capitol or the White House

Have a look at these “friendly” updates:
Luckily, you can do something about it!
Make sure they are not installed. If they have been installed already, you may want to disable them.
You can use the Control Panel to do that, or by running the following commands using an elevated command prompt
wusa /uninstall /kb:3068708 /quiet /norestart wusa /uninstall /kb:3022345 /quiet /norestart wusa /uninstall /kb:3075249 /quiet /norestart wusa /uninstall /kb:3080149 /quiet /norestart
Of course, don’t forget to hide the updates after you’ve uninstalled them!
Yay! It’s SysAdminDay again!
Maybe most our (l)users just see us like this..

Your network is secure, your computer is up and running, and your printer is jam-free. Why? Because you’ve got an awesome sysadmin (or maybe a whole IT department) keeping your business up and running.
and today it’s OUR appreciation day!
