To download all avaliable updates for Windows XP - & Windows 7 (even Vista) particularly, if 'you should ever have to do a clean wipe - you loose all your existing updates, Here is how to keep or install them after your re-install including XP3. XP 1- or 2 should already be down loaded first
before ever trying to install the # 3 updates. Cannot download unless prior installed.
THE PROGRAM IS > AUOTOPATCHER IT IS DESIGNED TO DOWNLOAD WINDOWS UPDATES
FROM MICROSOFT.COM SERVERS. Website. Mod Edit: Changed link to website - Hamluis..
NOTE: Autopatcher is popular for Windows users tht do not have FAST INTERNET connections or
who have limited usage such as those cappedy internet service providers.
Autopatcher is for off line installation of the updates with out the need for visiting Microsoft Update
website using the Windows update appliation in vista or windows 7
I downloaded mine to a CD prior to the Wipe, Had SP2 already installed, then I could install
SP 3, then downloaded muy updates and patches. Check it out. see if it will apply to you also. Good Luck. The Green Hornet.
