What is "Microsoft Windows Publisher"?

Discussion in 'Windows Update' started by David E. Johnson, Sep 25, 2005.

  1. Recently, when I have been attempting to run Windows update on one of our
    Win2K machines I receive a message asking me to install "Windows Update"
    published by "Microsoft Windows Publisher". Is this REALLY Microsoft?
    The certificate looks legit. However, my spider scense was tingling. Has
    anyone else seen this?
    Advice and help greatly appreciated,

  2. That's not very specific.. on the messages part and/or on your part.

    You are trying to "run Windows Update" (visit
    http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/ ?) on one of your Windows 2000 computers
    and receive a message WHILE running windows update asking you to install
    "Windows Update" published by "Microsoft Windows Publisher"? Well - if you
    initiated the Windows Update process and this comes up as a aresult - it
    sounds legit to me.
