I have just bought a new PC which comes with Windows XP Home + Service Pack.
Unfortunatly not all the latest security updates are on there - so the moment I go online I get infected with a virus that attacks my SMSC.exe.
Now, I am able to download the patches for this security issue, but not without going online to the Windows Update site, and hence getting infected by going online. The virus then disables my virus checker (Norton AV).
Is there any way that I can make a disk with all the security updates on, so that I can restore my system and apply the fixes BEFORE I go online?
I only have the firewall that is built into XP, although I am not sure if BT BROADBAND turn this firewall on, and I don't know if I am sharing files - I am just using the settings that came with the TINY PC.
But just to be sure, I would still like all the updates on before I go online for the first time after I perform a system restore from the recovery disk.
