just a thought,
i regularly update 'windows xp' and 'Office xp' but was just wondering... if my computer crashed completely and i had to re-install windows and 'office', would i have to download all the updates again. or is there a way that i can save them all.
Just thinking ahead incase the worse happens! :thumbsup:

Yes, you will have to reinstall these if you reinstall Windows. However, there is generally a downloadable version (these are often used by system administrators) of the patch which you could save as a back up before installing; the trick is to be consistent, so you will not inadvertantly miss one or two critical patches.
Regards,
John
