    I've have automatic updates turned on since Feb 05 but checked for udates
    using the site today and after installing the 'Genuine Advantage' software
    and that checking out fine it says there are no critical/security updates.

    However in update history the last update was dowloaded (automatically) on
    16 June 05 - Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer for Windows XP
    Service Pack 2 (KB883939).

    Have there been no updates since then? They were usually at least a couple
    each month. I've checked for hidden updates and there are none there. Does
    anyone know if there have been any and if so why haven't they been dowloaded.

    I have 16 files I downloaded in my Winodws XP Hotfixes and Patches folder.
    That's the number I downloaded - not the number the Windows Update
    downloaded and installed. Sounds like something is amiss on your system.

    Go to www.autopatcher.com and download their file Autopatcher for XP August
    version. It'sa bout 200Mb and includes mnay updates - it does require SP2 be
    installed.

    Save it as "patch.cmd" in its own empty directory called "patches"..

    Then use the last REM line for each patch to directly download the patch you
    need and save that patch in the same directory as the "patch.cmd" file.
    Once you have them all - run the PATCH.CMD file. It will install all the
    patches since Windows XP SP2 came out - until now - and a few extras.

    Overkill? Maybe - but now you also know every patch that has come out..

    You can download all updates and burn them to CD..

    You can download each update manually - based off the KB Article number,
    etc. That way you can back it up/burn a CD of them in case you need them or
    use them to keep a slipstream/integrated (updated) Windows XP CD.

    You can see the critical (security and other) patches released for a given
    month using the following:

    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/ms##-***.mspx

    At the end of this line you see "ms##-***.mspx" .. If you simply replace ##
    with the two-digit year and the *** with the three character month
    abbreviation, you will see the list of "critical" and "important" patches
    for that month (since it only happens once a month usually, if you check by
    the second Tuesday (wait until afternoon) of each month - you should be
    fine) - note that future months will not work.
