After every time i install Windows XP i spend more than 2 hours to download and install fixes and updates.

Downloading Security Update for Microsoft .NET Framework, Version 1.1 Service Pack 1 (KB886903) (update 24 of 53)... done!

Downloading Security Update for Windows Media Player 10 for Windows XP (KB911565) (update 2 of 2)... done!

So can i make EXE installs it all without the internet?

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. 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

Hi I'm confused i found many months releases do i have to download all those?
Or (June 2006) release will be enough?

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)

yes...now install the full, close it, then install may, then install june

you've got all the updates now

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
