It is much safer to download updates & patches direct from Microsoft.

With the direct download link from this third-party website you have no idea what you are installing till it's too late - it's an 'exe' file that could contain malware. I certainly would not install something "blind" like that from a source I have not dealt with or heard of before.

"It is much safer to download updates & patches direct from Microsoft."

Support from Microsoft is non-existent. They even broke the pages for Windows Update for Windows 95, Windows NT4.0, and Windows 98/98SE/ME, which were working fine a year ago, I might add. When loading these pages from Internet Explorer > Tools > Windows Update, they repeatedly load a blank page over and over. The only way to get fixes or patches these days is from FTP archives, aka third parties.
