Has MS stopped supply critical updates and service packs?

I check the MS page for updates every time I am on-line which is just about
on a daily basis. A week would not go by without a critcal update being
posted on theWindows update website. But in recent months these seem to have
dried up. It has been a number of weeks since there has been anything to
download. Plus I have heard that the service pack 2 will be released
shortly. Is this true.

In short, is there a problem here or are there actually no critical updates
released by MS for some time?

Thanks in advance.

FF

The much awaited XP SP 2 will be out one of these days.

No problems, however:

1) MS is doing a "burst" schedule (Monthly I think) so there may be weeks in
the middle where no updates for your computer are present.

2) MS will be "blocking" updates for commonly pirated CD keys for Windows.

As a work around, you should check the security lists or just visit the
recent patches and download and install them manually. (Won't help in the
case of 2 though...)

How do I know if my CD key for Windows has been pirated?

Well, you'll definitely know when you try to install SP2.
