Microsoft May 2011 Patch Tuesday Patches Released

There are only two bulletins this month. MS11-036 replaces the problematic MS11-022 patch from April 2011 that broke Powerpoint 2003 and 2002 slide decks with background images in their master slide. So if you have systems affected by that bug and didn’t roll out the hotfix for MS11-022 yet, that problem will go away as you deploy MS11-036.

No fix for the Outlook 2007 print preview printing problem was included in this month’s patches. That should appear the next time releases Outlook 2007 patches.
