    Users tell Microsoft to scrap 'pain in butt' Security Update Guide

    Customers have lambasted Microsoft over its new searchable Security Update Guide, which replaced its familiar Patch Tuesday security bulletin format.

    Microsoft in November warned customers it would soon change how it tells them about updates. It flicked the switch with the April 11 updates, only publishing updates to the Security Update Guide (SUG), rather than individual bulletins on the Security Bulletin Website.

    But early feedback shows that some users aren't happy with the change. Responding to Microsoft's invitation to provide suggestions on its support forum, one user says the "new format is horrible".

    "Hate, hate, hate the new security bulletin format. HATE," wrote a user called Janelle 322. "I now have to manually transcribe this information to my spreadsheet to disseminate to my customers. You have just added eight hours to my workload. Thanks for nothing."

    Just like a lot of Windows "improvements" since W7.
