"April showers" the poem begins, and while it's not an all-out storm, April Patch Tuesday provides more than a sprinkling of updates, including critical patches.

In the midst of these clouds, though, here's a silver lining: Microsoft lifted the AV compatibility check prior to delivery of Windows security updates. It's full speed ahead on patching!
