With Vista, it has to have SP1 before SP2 is installed, at the end of updates, that "usually" means there are no new ones, only the existing - so you "should" be able to still get any current ones.

What would be a good Idea, is to down load both the Service Packs and save them - that way if you ever need them you already have them, will be a LOT quicker than having to download again (done two Vista Laptop upgrades of SP1 & 2 today).

Don't quote me on this but i think it means no more new updates? So all the old updates already released can be downloaded again, just the updates for new vulnerabilities won't show.
