Thanx that would be helpful if I was relying on Windoze to update itself but I'm not cos I don't trust it. I am using a third party app to scan and download only those updates relevant to my config.
I have read recently (wish I could remember where) that all Windoze Hotfixes once downloaded can be re-installed without the need to d/load again, surely then this means that they are stored somewhere on your HDD for future use...No?
Cheers yes you are right of course (DOH!) but you see I am using an original Beta version of XP pro and so there are many Hotfixes to download (loads of Megs) and I'm still on a dial-up. This would take days to complete so I'll wait till I have Broadband installed before I go any futher (BB on order)
