You may be able to get enough of the updates here to keep you reasonably protected.
2. Windows ME Security Patches for 2001
3. Windows ME Security Patches for 2000http://cws.internet.com/file/11682.htmEdit: the part below refers to Windiz and not for the security patch links above.
You'd have to install Firefox to get them though. That's not a bad thing, imo. I use FF as my default browser. I still have IE for some sites that won't work in FF and for the updates. But I have used Windiz myself and it's fine. So if you want to keep using IE, just install FF for getting the updates, then you can uninstall it, since there won't be anymore patches for Windows Me to get.
From their forum:
The patches will still be available for detection and download, and we will try to indicate sitations where there is a vunerability with the software and no patch is available. Since the death of 98/Me, Microsoft will no longer be issuing security patches. But if you have a good firewall and antivirus, you won't need them.
Good reasons to use WindizUpdate
* No personally identifiable information is collected from your computer.
* No more unwanted spyware -- Microsoft Internet Explorer can finally be removed from your computer (if that were possible).
* It lists just the updates you need. If an update has been superceded by a newer one, it will not ask you to install the older one.
* Using enhanced data from MBSA, WindizUpdate will find more security patches needed for your O/S than the "other" website.
* If there is a security issue with a component that is not yet installed, it will not ask you to update it. For example, if you have not installed hyperterminal, it will not update it.
* It is not restricted to just Microsoft products. Software from other vendors can also be updated.
* Upgrading to the latest version of Internet Explorer is not considered a Critical Update!
* Works on Windows versions no longer supported by Microsoft -- Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 95
* Our plugin is not an ActiveX control.
* Integrated download manager with error detection -- you can cancel downloads at any time, and the next time you wish to install the cancelled update, it will continue from where it left off. Only corrupted sections of the file are redownloaded.
* There is a delay from when new updates are released from Microsoft to when they appear on this site.
* If you're using Internet Explorer, you will need to use Microsoft's Windows Update site for updates -- this site will be of no use to you.
* You'll need to upgrade your browser if you're using MSIE 4.xx -- This site won't work, neither will Microsoft's. http://windowsupdate.62nds.com/
