well, yes, sort of...but it is a freaking lot of work you can download the individual updates and create a batch file to load most of them, but an easier solution is to get Autopatcher XP

Microsoft is suppose to still have the SP2 CD free. :whistling: Contains the Updates only up to the time of its distribution, but with Windows Critical Update feature set to install when you want to install, this should help to a certain extent:

Autopatcher rules--I keep a copy of each (xp, 2000, 2003) on my PC for pc repairs---at least 70 percent of the PCs I see are not updated, generally because of slow phone lines (though I see more and more broadband every month)

But, even with broadband, autopatcher is great. Last thing I do is pop in the CD, start it up, and have the owner hit done and reboot at the end.

I could sit there for a couple hours downloading everyhing on a fast connection, and this is slick and easy for anyone

you need the June FULL, or get the APRIL or MAY full and the June Update

Install the full, then install the update on top, the run autopatcher

(for those who wish to make this portable, you can copy the c:\program files\autopatcher folder to a cd and run it from a cd or thumbdrive)

it is not exactly one click, you load autopatcher and check those updates you want, and hit apply


come back two hours later and you are uptodate
