I want list of Windows Updates (KB Updates)

March 9, 2011 at 20:59:23
Specs: Windows XP, 2.266 GHz / 1015 MB
If you are on SP3 by an update then you may find it in: Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs. Check the box Show Updates at the top then go down to the Windows XP - Software Updates. I want the names of those updates something like KB942288 etc.

Actually I'm on service pack 2 and want manually to update the XP. I want to update manually because I format my computer approximately 2 months and don't want that each 2 months I give so much load to my dial-up connection to update the XP. So, could you please name those updates.

-Sandy

Those links are not enough helpful for me. Please provide me the names of updates in your Update in Add or Remove Programs. I can't decide what to download form those links.

Maybe you could get Chuck to download them and check them for you... what more do you want?

His updates may not be the same as yours depending on the other Microsoft software that may be installed. Either continually download and install Critical Updates, or just go for it and get Service Pack 3.

I think it's crazy that you're reinstalling Windows every 2 months. If you really have that need, you should get Hard Disk Drive Imaging software and take a snapshot after you've installed everything the way you like. Then you can revert back to that image every 2 months without reinstalling all the Windows updates.

Or you could download the Windows XP SP3 file itself, save it to an external drive, and use it each time you reinstall your OS. That way you'll only have to download it once and you'll always have it.

I can sympathize with your Internet connection, but there are more efficient ways to go about what you had in mind. If you installed everything Chuck has, you'll probably end up installing stuff you don't even need, so try one or a combination of the 3 suggestions I made instead. If you're not sure about a specific update (or "hotfix" as Microsoft calls them), just ask. =)

Apologies if I don't respond to your reply immediately. I don't check this site daily, but you're welcome to PM me as a reminder.

Just as a matter of interest, why do you find it necessary to reinstall Windows XP every two months? And why are you sticking with SP2 and not going for SP3? Those factors appears to be the root cause of your problems.

I find it necessary to install XP every 2 months because I think that Windows runs faster when newly installed and also some bugs are fixed and I have no problem if all my bugs are fixed and I get much faster speed if it only takes 40 minutes. By the way I got a SP3 CD from my friend but it is pirated and according to me it has much slower speed than SP2.
And the screen also blinks sometimes in SP3. So I decided to manually download all the updates and install them each time I reinstall the XP..
