C:\WUTemp & Windows Update Setup File

  [DELETED] 01:09 19 Nov 2003

Is it true that I only need to backup the updates stored in the WUTemp file to keep an archive of updates - rather than redowload them?
and the Windows Update Setup File is not any use for this purpose is it ?

I want to achieve a full set of updates for my original Windows98 install CD.

well actually they are not removed after each reboot. they are deleted right after they are installed.
what i do is i wait for all the updates to download and when the progress window says "installing updates" i go to the "WUTemp" folder and make a copy of everything that is in there.

There have been a lot of reports regarding Windows Update, when you download the updates, the installation of the updates seems to hang or die. AOL users seem to have this problem more than others.

There is a way to fix this.

1. Double-click My Computer.

On the Tools menu, press Folder Options.
Select the View tab.
Clear the Hide protected operating system flies (Recommended) box.
Check the Show Hidden files and folders box.
Press Apply and OK.
Expand the C: drive.
Expand the WUTemp folder.
Press CTRL+A to select all the files and sub-folders in WUTemp.
Press the Delete key and Yes when prompted to confirm the deletion.
Expand the C: drive.
Expand Program Files.
Right-click the WindowsUpdate folder and Rename it OldWindowsUpdate.
Restart your computer and delete the OldWindowsUpdate folder.
Use Internet Explorer to visit click here.
It also is a good idea to delete you cookies and Temp files first.

Instead of messing about just go to the Windows catalog and download to a location of your choice.
