WinXP SP1 -> how best to patch?

vbimport

#1

I am reinstalling WinXP SP1 (ie the one with SP1 built in) and am wondering what the best way is to obtain all the security patches if I dont want to go to the MS website.

I have the cumulative patch dated 2003 already downloaded.

How many more patches are there and can I get them all in one single download?

Wow that sounds good, I have to check this out. Maybe this is a nice alternative of the SUS server solution!

Thanx for mentioning this :slight_smile:

Great tool! It’s a hefty dl (200+ MB) but well worth it.
Includes many tools (PowerToys, TweakUI, Windows Media player, DX 9.0b) and registry tweaks that makes it far superior to Windows Update imho.
