I have recently had my original pc returned to me which is a 486/66 with 24 meg RAM. I thought that I might perform some windows updates as it has never been conncected to the web on its old 2400 speed modem but its taking ages just to load a page. Can I connect using my more modern pc, save the updates to disk and then run them, and if I can how will I know what ones to run as the old pc will not be the one connecting to windows update? I is currently running IE version 3 and I would also like to update this as well. Any suggestions please?

I do not think you will now be able to get the updates for 95

Why not just save them to the Desktop, copy the file using Nero (or whatever you use) to a CD-R and then install them?

Then you can delete the downloaded Desktop file after checking the CD-R burning is OK.

Thanks for the advice. Some of the updates I have viewed seem to install automatically on the pc that downloads them - obviously not for me. I'll keep you informed from tomorrow. Thanks again.
