How do I download the IE7 patch on a computer that has fast broadband to install on a computer with slow/unreliable connection?

Go to the MS site and download it manually then copy it. Then install it

Funny how this one patch for IE7 is about as large as the install file for say Firefox, Opera, Safari or Chromium.

Tried that - there is no download, just pages of crap.

That's the page I've been looking for.

I went to a page for KB953838 and (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/info.aspx?na=49&p=1&SrcDisplayLang=en&SrcCategoryId=&SrcFamilyId=8e2125c7-52cb-4052-82a3-2d3c6a953752&u=http%3a%2f%2fsupport.microsoft.com%2f%3fkbid%3d9 53838)MS08-045 but they were of no help!

Youre meant to click on the link under component. Which would have taken you to the download

So much easier with broadband even though the computer is slow as (a few seconds at approx 256kbps). I don't recall seeing components. I don't know why the searches didn't take me to that page (like previous KB articles/downloads have in the past). Also I notice that that page has a lot of advertising cookies and pages which mine (fast computer but 0 to 5kbps downloads) blocks also.
