Another way is to run windows update manually, after it looks for the updates, it will list every thing thats available, you write down the codes Eg: KB 12345 and then go to Windows Update site (http://update.microsoft.com/microsoftupdate/v6/vistadefault.aspx?ln=en-us) in the top right type in the KB code, and it will take you to the download, the only problem is there may be several of the same KB number, so you have to select the correct one for your system. Select the correct one and save it to your PC for installing later.

Edited: Or GO Here (http://www.softwarepatch.com/windows/index.html) - select your OS, it gives the updates by month as well.

I usually use that site down there too, great when Windows complains that Windows isn't legal when it is!:groan:

x2 for Autopatcher. You can install the updates YOU want instead of the ones MS installs.

You can install any updates you want, just turn automatic updates off

Or go to the MS download site and download whatever update/s yourself, then install them.
