    Critical Updates - how to transfer to another PC? (IE6)

    There have been so many critical updates lately, it is driving me nuts to keep downloading on many machines I have been updating.

    Is there a way to copy the Critical Update files to another machine and have them run successfully without having to bog down and wait for the 12-18MB to download from Microsoft?

    I am running Windows 2000 Professional SP2 on all of these machines, and have tried copying across files located in:
    C:WINNT$NTUninstallQxxxxx

    the xxxx directories are named after the Q or SP hotfix or update.

    I copied these directories to another computer and tried to install from there, but it kept producting errors.

    Anyone have a way to do this?

    Go to http://corporate.windowsupdate.micro...en/default.asp and you can download the updates for multi machine use.
    Hope this helps.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Also: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/search.asp?
    Download all updates you need (usually I create corresponding text file with the same name containing breef description of the update) and burn them on CD. It will save you a lot of time.
