MSNBC – Microsoft releases 8 ‘critical’ patches
SEATTLE – Microsoft Corp. released eight security fixes Tuesday that carry its highest threat rating and urged computer users to install them quickly because all the vulnerabilities they address could let attackers take complete control of systems.

You can use Windows Update if you need to apply these patches to your own computer.  Better yet, you can set up your computer (Windows 2000, Windows XP, or Windows Me) for Automatic Updates so that Windows will find the updates you need and apply them directly to your computer.  There is also an option for Automatic Updates to just prompt you whenever any updates are ready to be downloaded and installed.  (The Automatic Updates icon will appear in the notification area of your computer’s taskbar.)
