are XP updates saved?

I'm thinking about wiping my hard drive to clear up a lot of clutter (didn't do a clean install on upgrade, blah blah) but I'm wondering about all those WinXP automatic updates I've downloaded over the months -- not to mention the Norton Antivirus ones.

Are they saved anywhere on the hard drive? Or (sigh) do I have a massive download session ahead of me?

go for the clean install in NTFS and then yes do all the updates again

boo hoo... maybe I'll just put up with hard drive squalor...

if you did not do a clean install and just an upgrade then your system will be a lot slower

Even so, it's so much faster than Win98 was, and it doesn't crash all the time.

Thanks for your help ...
