Internet Explorer Patches

By nancigiuffre ·
Does it strike anyone that within the past two weeks - I have noticed that I have had just way too many "critical updates" notifications !!? I am running an older Dell Optiplex, Windows 98SE, and just recently had a complete Wipe done on the hard disk, from a moderately corrupted driver issue.

I brought the machine IN from repairs, did all the updates and tweaking to recoup my losses. Put a hard copy of Norton directly ON, and added all new applications where necessary.

Here's my point, if Microsoft is detecting so "many" security issues - are we being toyed with by at the very least "troublesome persons' of questionable purpose", and shouldn't the common, run-of-the-mill home user be made slightly more aware of risks, than what the typical news program talks about ??

Thanks for any input. Or, I'm totally paranoid and just plain nuts. LOL Still "old school & Learning each day" !!
