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.

    Taking a moment's reflection, Sonic mused:

    | The link also requires use of IE.

    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.
