How can I download Microsoft Security Updates without Windows Update?

I just received the new Security Update bulletin from Microsoft, and
was wondering how can I actually download the updates as individual
files, instead of having to rely on Windows Update.

I just re-installed Windows and it took me three hours to download and
re-install all the stuff through Windows Update.

If I had all the files on CD it would have been so easy.

Microsoft may still be offering the free "Security Update CD." They even
paid the postage. Mine is dated February 2004. Also, if you can find the
corporate update page you can download and save the files.

On the Windows Update site, down on the left hand side,
there's a link to Windows Update Catalog. That will allow
you to select the updates and download them to your hd for
processing later.

The link also requires use of IE.

Taking a moment's reflection, Sonic mused:

Seems to work fine with Firefox from here.

If you have just updated through windows update, but not emptied your
Temporary Internet files then it is possible to pick out the download's from
there, the only downside is when you use them you have to restart for nearly
each one, where as microsoft update site you dont. or you can copy the
entire temporary Internet files folder and paste it when it is needed again,
that way ms update should not need to download them again.
