    Is there anyway to save your updates for XP? Basically so that if you do a clean install, you dont have to spend time downloading them all again. Cheers

    I'm pretty sure the only way would be to follow all the ms advisorys and download all the updates individually. I could be wrong though.:oops:

    Yes you can do the slipstream option with the SP's but you would still need to download all the individual hotfixes that came after SP2.

    For the patches Autopatcher is your friend.

    All the patches since the last SP and you can select which ones to install (if, for example, you don't want IE7).

    Autopatcher has been around for a while and they pretty decent to have when you deploying XP on a lot of machines.. trick is to make sure you have SP2 then you can take it from there... there also tweaks for registry settings like disable remote registry and put the control panel into classic... also you can get it for many languages!

    oh did i mention its another greek product? :tongue

    Yup it is a geeks product. I have used it twice now and it takes just under an hour to install all the critical updates since SP2 and any other non critical updates/patches too, plus you only need to re-boot once, at the end. So far so good 8)
