Hi,

I guess when you download windows updates, it downloads .exe's or .msi's. Where are they stored??

Because I have dial up and I guessed that if i went to my mates PC who has broadband he his computer updated it would get them all and I could just copy them

Cheers

The aren't stored on the system. The installation is usually removed.

Also, your friend's computer will, most likely, have different componants to yours, so not all of the updates are necassary (and you will need ones your friend hasn't got)
