Hi guys just a quick question regarding Microsoft updates.

When downloading Windows updates is there a way to download them to a folder on your computer rather than installing on the 'fly'? The other advantage of this is that they can be used again if you have to reinstall WinXP thus you don't have to revisit Microsoft. I seem to think there was a way but have since lost the website hosting the details.

Cheers in advance.

You can find Microsoft updates that you can download and save at the following site:
