You could go here and use this instead:

http://www.neowin.net/forum/index.php?showforum=89

and

http://www.autopatcher.com/downloads/

You will have to do a bit of reading, I and many others use this and it works very well, if you have any questions post back here.

NB: Full
This is the whole kit and kaboodle. You get all of Microsoft's patches (both critical and non-critical), add-ons (such as Windows Media Player and .NET Framework), various common registry tweaks, and some cool third-party extensions (such as PowerMenu and RunWithArguments).

Update
These are updates to Full and Lite releases. Rather than downloading a new Full or Lite release every month, you can use these to update the one you already have. To avoid problems you should not skip months. (i.e. January Full + March Update is wrong... you skipped February).

Install the ActiveX Control

Click Find hardware driver updates or Find Microsoft Windows updates
Select your version of Windows or category of hardware
Click Add next to each update you want (in your case all)
Click Go to Download Basket
Make a folder for the updates on your PC
Browse to that folder in the Update Window
Click Download Now


Enjoy :)

Summation is at the bottom of first post. You can download with a torrent downloader or there are options to download using a standard file downloader. It's up to you which you use.

You should read some of the posts in the forum to gain some idea of the idea which is not complicated to use and works very well in my experience.

Suggest you read the XP Dec 06 for a start or whichever your os is.

Just download Nov 06 Full and then Dec update and apply them to the system in need of the updates or even to one which is fully updated, you will find useful tweaks you can apply.

thanks zqwerty

but i have a doubt are they TRUSTWOTHY??

becoz when a third party provides the collection of updates of WINDOWS where MICROSOFT is not providing it is it TRUSTWORTHY??

does they contain any VIRUS or SPYWARE or MALWARE ......

No Spyware no Malware, for sure. If you read the forum it will become obvious that the people who assemble AutoPatcher are enthusiasts who enjoy working with computers, rather like the people on this site.

You should get a copy anyway you never know when they may tire of the exercise. Each of the Full editions contains ALL of the MS updates to that time and therefor you will never have to dload them again. Once you have installed the Full plus whatever Update is required you can save the Program Files folder of AutoPatcher to CD and have a very convenient means of adding to any other computer. But that is in the future when you are more conversant with the program.

Just set up a new instal of XP or 2K on another computer and then use to appropriate AutoPatcher and see if I am not correct in what I have told you.

They may be making an edition for 98SE as well, although for 98SE you can just use this:

UNOFFICIAL Windows98 Second Edition Service Pack 2.1a (Freeware):

http://exuberant.ms11.net/98sesp.html

This is safe as well, I have used it on three different computers with no ill effects.

By the way it is possible to order a CD/DVD from MS with all of the update required since SP2 for all current supported OS's.

If you are so worried then add ie again and get the updates from Microsoft like I provided in my post. You can uninstall ie again if you don't want it.
