Microsoft Security Updates on CD

  Border View 17:34 21 Feb 2004

Please forgive me if this has been mentioned earlier but I have tried a search and didnt find anything.

I've read in another forumn that if you visit
http(:)//click here you can order a CD which will be sent free which includes all security updates for Windows 98, 98SE and others up to an including XP.

Has anyone else heard about this please?

That's handy as I often have to perform a fresh installation of Windows XP and having most updates on CD saves hours of download time.

Nice post, thank you.

Just found out that you have to have a hotmail address. Only today I have uninstalled ms messenger because of problems is was causing. To get an hotmail address I shall have to resintall. Not happy about this. Any comments please.

You dont have to have MSN Messenger , if you already have a Passport/Hotmail addy that will do , just go to click here to check your mail.

Still a big download and for the CD you have to pay.
