    With the exception of service pack #1, which I already have. Can you manually download all the updates for Windows XP Pro and store them, I'm guessing its possible through M.S. website somewhere?

    One more question and its a big one, what are all the current updates? Please list. Thanks alot in advance.:cheers:

    Yes you can download all the updates and save them for future use.

    go to Windows Update Corporate but to use the site you need to know which updates you need.
    for that you will have to scan your machine from normal windows update site, note the fix number and get it from corporate site.
    though its a long procedure but is quite helpful in long way.

    your post didn't clearly mention that which list did you want.
    i m mentioning the list of fixes in Windows XP Service Pack 1 (SP1)

    [EDIT]more info:
    check out ERPMan's Windows 2000 & XP System Updates Page (beware of pop-ups). guy maintains a good list of all the updates along with direct links to the MS pages for updates.
    you can also sign up with MS HotFix & Security Bulletin Service to recieve latest news about the released fixes. [/EDIT]

    Good observation. But for some strange reason I can now auto update as of last night. I think it might just have been M.S.'s website all along.:confused:

    if you have a firewall then it does this to the access to the update site sometimes.

    I don't have a firewall that I know of, unless my ISP recently added one I don't know about.
