    I was wondering if there is anywhere I can download
    windows updates and save them so that I can install them
    on another computer without having to access the internet
    through it.
    I am asking this question especially because I recently
    tried to reformat my computer and the moment I connected
    to the internet to download windows updates I was
    attacked by some kind of blaster worm before I had a
    chance to download the security patch against it.
    As I understand it, windows updates are only available to
    download and install interactively for computers
    connected to the internet that need them.
    What I would like to be able to do is use a computer that
    already has an updated windows XP on it to download the
    proper security patch and if possible any other critical
    updates adn burn them on a cd. Later I would like to
    install a fresh copy of windows XP on a new computer and
    install the updates without having to access the internet
    and be exposed to online threats.
    Is this possible?

    Yes you can...

    Towards the end of the following article it gives you the
    address to the "manual" section of Windows Update.

    From here you can then select the operating system you
    wish and the patches....

    Kind Regards

    Bob, where would you go for ie6 SP1 ?
    I mean where do you go to find the actual image for
    different SP and manually download it ?

    I used the path suggested by Marc Liron in a previous
    reply to the same subject
    corporate=true) but couldn't find ie6 SP1.

    thanks in advance for any help.
