    Or you could order the free Microsoft security CD.

    Yes it is. Go to the Windows Update site. Click on the Personalize Windows
    Update menu choice on the left pane. Check the box for Windows Update
    Catalog. Once you have that option in the left pane you can click on it for
    a detailed list of updates for various OS's. Now you can choose the OS that
    you want to check for updates and simply download and save them to disk for
    installation at another time.

    Regards,
    John O.
