    I wish to download all critical updates since SP2 on my adsl connection and
    archive them on my PC for subsequent installation of these updates on
    friends PCs that have been updated to SP2 with the MS supplied CD.
    I have downloaded the files from the Windows Update Catalog, but how do I
    now install them?
    Hopefully there is a reasonably automated process and that I don't have to
    do them one at a time.
    The PCs would be done separately as and when I have them to hand.
    Any pointers or URLs to instructions would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    Just run them all to install. If prompted to reboot, don't - unless
    it's the last one. (You don't need qchain.exe with XP (qchain lets you
    chain updates without the req'd reboots)).

    How does this work? I don't have XP myself but many of my friends do
    and I often have to go and fix things.
