Default Downloading Windows Updates to desktop (to be able to put on CD)

Hi,
I was wondering if it is possible to download the Windows updates to a sepcific location (desktop for ex) and then burn them on to a cd

The thing is that I formated the copmuter recently and lost all security updates.

My internet connection is very slow so it would take a lot of time to download them.

My friend has a very fast internet connection so I want to download the updates there and burn them to a cd and install them here on my computer.

I went to the Microsoft website and saw a list of updates to download.

My question is that if I download for example an update released on Mar 25, would it take care of all updates released before that date (in its category of course) or should I download them too?? (That is to say, would it be enough to download only the newly released updates or will I have to download also the old ones??)

How is it possible to know what updates I should download?

Also, when updating Norton, does the update released on march 25 cover all previously released updates?? (does it include the other updates previoulsy released?)


Thank YOu

Thank you for your reply

I do have SP2 on a CD but I did not install it because I read a lot of reviews saying that it isnt that good

But if I install it, I will still have to get the new updates right??

Do you advise me to install it?

And what about Norton updates? If I download an update released on Mar 25, will I need to downlaod the updates before that date or this one will take care of them and cover them?

Thank you again

I say yes Install it look at this thread when i made the decision about sp2 coz i didnt want 2 either. If u do install sp2 u wont need 2 get the other updates unless they have been relesed after sp2.

About Norton the newest update should cover all the older one's

link about sp2 and my computer: http://techist.com/showthread.php?s=...=sp2+or+no+sp2
