    Updates After Restore To Factory Condition?

    I want to use the feature on my Dell Inspiron 6000 with WinXP SP3 to restore it to factory condition. Once I do that, will I still be able to download and install all the updates that Microsoft has released during the life of the OS? In other words, are they still available since Microsoft no longer supports WinXP?
