I was assuming that the update file from MajorGeek.com
would allow me to save it before it was installed. Then
maybe, I thought, I could just save it to a CD.

This is particularly useful if I need to install the update file
on someone else's pc that has no broadband connection.
Becos all I need to do is just to insert the CD in his pc
instead of having to download it again.

Of course, if the time interval between the download and
the intended updating of the software is long, the saved
update file may not be so up to date and maybe less useful,
as in the case of antivirus software.

You can download the virus definitions
here: http://securityresponse.symantec.com...es/US-N95.html

This will also tell you how to manualy install them
I believe the folder is "Incoming" and its used as a temp folder.
