On Tuesday, August 9, 2011, Microsoft is planning to release thirteen (13) bulletins addressing 22 vulnerabilities in Microsoft Windows, Office, Internet Explorer, .NET and Visual Studio.
Two of the updates are identified as Critical, nine as Important and the remaining two as Moderate, with most requiring a restart.
Although, whether required or not, it is advised to restart your computer after installing updates, a number of the scheduled bulletins will require a restart in order to complete the installation. Even though the updates to .NET Framework are identified as "may require a restart", I recommend installing them separate from the other updates.
