    Hi

    I just installed XP Home and updated it to SP3.

    The PC has a very slow internet connection so I do not wan to do automatic
    updates.

    Is there a site I can go to download all updates since SP3 so I can download
    them on a fast
    PC then burn them to a disk and install them on the slow PC.

    thanks

    Daniel

    One option - since you clearly have access to a site with a highspeed
    connection - is to just move the PC to the high-speed site (you only need to
    take the box), get the updates, and then take the PC back.

    Since that PC's home has a low-speed connection, you don't want automatic
    updates on. Turn it, and the notification, off, and check manually.

    Yes use this software to download all the patches and then put them on your
    flashdrive to use it on your machine that needs to be patched.

    I would emphasize that patching anything with Microsoft updates is risky and
    IMHO patches are not required if you have SP3 and your firewall is
    configured to "allow no exceptions". You also need a good anti-virus
    software like MSE downloaded manually with updates. { I have not installed
    any updates post SP3 and I have no intention of doing so. If it is good for
    me it is good for any rational individual.}

    Patches will slow down your system and frustration will build up resulting
    in you banging your machine rendering it useless!
