Hi,

Is there a New Zealand site for windowsupdate?

I need to download a whole bunch of patches but don't want to use all my d/l limit getting updates from the .com server.

Thanks,

Donald.

Depending upon your OS, you can order CD's with the latest service pack on from Microsoft which will save the download and also mean you have the files for future re-use. Also, many computer magazine cover disks often have the latest service pack on it.

Edit: Here is the place where you can order a XP SP2 CD for free - Order Windows XP Service Pack 2 on CD (http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/updates/sp2/cdorder/en_us/default.mspx)

Which Service Packs are you after?

I have SP's for XP and Windows 2000, and a few other critical updates.

If you want... I'd be happy to burn you a copy to CD and mail it to you.

cheers

Nope, (but it would be a nice idea)

It does not matter now days all most ISP count both local & overseas traffic.

I have almost all the critical updates since Service Pack 2.
And there are several sites which let you download all the critical updates since in one go, though at around 36 Megs.

The one I use is a for a freshly remade XP cd with all the critical updates.
