I think this may be the link of the download patch just published today:

I just downloaded it although I use Firefox I use Internet Explorer as an emergency or extra browser.

Marilyn - that site is "unavailable" at the moment.

How can we be sure that the link given is not one set up by the hackers, since it's not one of Microsoft's regularly scheduled updates?

I Googled the problem and asked for the Internet Explorer 7 Security Microsoft download. It wasn't a direct link, but a few screens later I came to after clicking on the Google answer site. It looks like a legitimate Microsoft website. I just copied and pasted the link which I got from the address bar at the top while being on the download screen. I downloaded it, but I'm not an expert so couldn't give any guarantees. I just clicked it a few minutes ago and it was available then.

Wed, 17th Dec '08 10:35 PM will keep you in the latest patches. Click "Custom Update" if you're a control freak like me.

You can also go to the tools tab, then choose Windows Update -- that takes you right to the correct site and is saftest way to get updates.... at least that what my brother the nerd says -- and when I did it, I was able to download pics again.
