Earlier, I had bookmarked a website listing Microsoft and Windows downloadable updates, for what seemed to be March or maybe April, 2016. That bookmarked site is this: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/search/DownloadsDrillinResults.aspx?FORM=DLC&ftapplicableproducts=%5e%22Windows%22&sortby=-availabledate&q=&first=81
Checking that same site tonight, the listing showing a page button at the bottom as "11", shows the issue dates to be from September, much more recent than when the site was bookmarked earlier this year. I am HOPING that clicking through to 9 or 8, or clicking up through 12 or 13 or 14, that the page would display downloadable updates for October 2016. If each listing entry really links to a separate downloadable installable file, that we could look for all the Vista updates and install each of them separately.
I do not remember how I found the site, but must have been through some searching with first search engine and then through the Microsoft Site. More recently while trying to follow links on the MS site, I have been unable to find anything like the page showing all these September updates. I'm also surprised that no member on this board has mentioned or suggested the site earlier.
I will click through to look for any October updates and see if any are downloadable. (and seemingly, Internet Explorer 9 WILL NOT download any Windows standalone installer update file on the site. I have already tried a few times, even today.)
