    I downloaded and saved all the critical updates for Windows XP Pro and put them on cd so I can install them at a later time if i need to reload windows again. My question is will these updates I downloaded work for windows XP Home Edition to or will I have to download the updates for XP Home? I have one system that has XP Pro and one that has XP Home.

    Click here to go to the windows update catalog. Then click "Find updates for Microsoft Windows operating systems". Now select your operating system and click search. It will show you all the updates. Click Add to add all the updates you want to download to your download basket. Then when you are done click "Go to download basket". There it will let you pick a place on your hard drive to save all the updates to.

    Hope this helps

    corporate=true, that makes sense!

    I figured there must be a way to do that, just never seen it.

    Thank you! This will save me hours and hours in years ahead!

    I'm with SaintKaden. Now i've got all the hotfixes in the Add/Remove dialog. What can be done to have them not displayed or not even shown there?
