Hi
I have XP Home on my Desktop and Laptop. I update them regularly manually through the Windows Update site. We have a slow dial-up connection.
My question is; In case I have to format my Hard disk and reinstall XP Home, is there a way I can save the installed updates so that I can copy them after new installation rather than going through the painful process of doing the whole thing again on my slow internet connection. I need same kind of help for my Norton Antivirus 2002 too. Thanking you.

When you go to Windows Update, click on Windows Update Catalog under "See Also". From here you can choose what updates to download to whatevfer location you choose.

Problem with download basket in Windows update site (i.e., selecting downloads from the list and saving them to disk) is that if the internet gets disconnected during download, which is very common, we have to start all over again. This does not happen with "review and install updates" button. With this, it continues from where it started.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
