Hello everyone...
I need to format my hard disk and reinstall everything... Since, I am on a dial-up connexn, I can't sit again and watch as sooooooo many updates get downloaded AGAIN after I reinstall XP.... How can I save all the updated files in my current OS and again apply them when I clean n reinstall XP??
Please help...
Thanks!

best & trouble free method - use AutoPatcher XP. (comes with most of the PC mags. DVD, Digit, PC World, Chip...)

I am not an expert in XP but I will tell you what I know. All those updates that are downloaded by Automatic Updates resides in WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution\Download\. I suppose backing this folder will solve your problem. But its a bit time consuming if you have a lot of updates to install all of them. Better slipstream them to your original windows Xp disk Using Nlite. You can find it on http://www.nliteos.com/:)
Your's Truely,

go to windows\software distribituion\download\ copy all update setup files. This may help you but you can't get all of the updates.
