    Does anyone know if there is a page that stores all the critical updates for
    Windows XP? I have located the page for Windows 98,
    http://microsoft.com/security/articles/stepbystep/windows98.asp ,
    but after much searching, I cannot locate a page like this for Windows XP.
    I would like to be able to download all the critical updates and put them on
    a CD. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    An alternate way to download any update for any version of Windows is
    to go to:
    <http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com>
    When the screen comes up, DO NOT click on "Scan for updates". Instead,
    click on the link "Windows update catalog" under "See Also" in the left
    pane. If you do not see this entry, then click on the "Personalize
    Windows Update" link under "Other Options" and then click on the
    checkbox beside "Display the link to Windows Update Catalog under SEE
    ALSO".

    After clicking "Windows update catalog", select your OS and a list of
    upgrades appears catagorized by "critical", etc. Select what you want
    and the upgrades will be downloaded to your computer for later
    installation.

    I prefer this method because I don't have to remember different links
    for each OS. The drawback is that you have to use Internet Explorer.

    HTH,
    John

    Katherine, you shouldn't have jumped in on someone elses thread.
    You should have used 'New Post' instead of 'Reply Group' (which I presume
    you did).
    Anyway try again using 'New Post' and putting your own subject line in where
    required ('Epson Printer' or whatever).
    Also in your post you gave no details of what Epson model, however if you
    don't want to post again I could but suggest you click the link below to an
    'Epson' web page.

    Hopeing to hear from you in your own thread perhaps.
