    Microsoft struggles with Patch Tuesday

    Microsoft on Tuesday released a slew of patches for Windows and Office, but
    a glitch prevented the company from pushing the updates out automatically.

    The patches, which include critical fixes for both Office and Windows, can
    be manually downloaded from Microsoft's Web site, and the company said it
    hopes the more-automated tools will have the patch available later on
    Tuesday. Microsoft said that its technical teams "have been working around
    the clock" to fix the updating problems.

    "Due to technical difficulties experienced on the Microsoft Update platform,
    security updates released today are not currently available via Microsoft
    Update, Automatic Updates, Windows Server Update Services or Windows Update
    v6," the software maker said.
