Downlaod and save to disk XP updates?

  Dave911 15:17 07 Oct 2003

Is there a way you can download the XP updates onto your hard drive and save them as a file. The reason I ask is that my hard drive decided to die and as such have had to do a full reload, now I have spent the last 2 dyas trying to put on all the critcal updates etc. If I could save them to a CDRW, then if these happens again (God forbid) I can put them straight back on.

Cheers Dave

you could also try d/loading big fix on father in law pc from click here and it would automatically alert to new updates and give a click here link to install, probably much safer and simpler.

bvw in bristol, great link however I am at a loss as to which OS of XP I am running, so far as i was aware it was the XP Home Edition, can you tell me the way to find out which one I have.

I am downloading bigfix as I type, so we shall see with that one.

Thanx guys

Thanx everyone - now all I have to decide is which download to install, but I shall work it out.
