    Don't you get the .v5 update with SP2 of XP anyway?

    Yeah I believe SP2 moved you from v4 to v5 of windows update.

    calling it update.microsoft.com made it inevitable anyway really.

    correct!

    Via the beta tester section you can also access v5a.

    I know a lot of the savvy's here may have known it, reasons for posting it was for non sp2 users and also some at the site I quoted it from were shocked it existed, which I found very odd indeed. :s Maybe I am thinking I might get the same response.

    for those who have, are you experiencing problems loading web pages after the updates?

    I tried it, no problems, but, to be safe I deleted windows partition and restored a back-up image.

    Nicely done, Lee. Thanks for the heads up. I've been waiting for this. :)

    It's a great idea to integrate all the MS update services into a single one. I usually end up updating Windows the day the updates are out, but I don't check OfficeUpdate as often. The new system should be much more convenient.

    I think the problem with integrating OfficeUpdate is that about 20% of the updates require the CD to be installed.
