    Hi Guys,

    I read Black Viper & turned off the 'automatic updates' in services. And could not get today's M$ updates. So back to services 'start' auto update service.
    Still no luck, had to 'start' background intelligent transfer service. This effort i was rewarded with 2 critical updates.

    Is there a way to get the updates and have one or both services disabled?

    Take Care
    Rico

    Sure. Just get 'em from ~Link removed - Not recommended by this forum - Ron~

    The updates themselves come straight from M$, but you don't need auto update and BITS running. WindizUpdate works like a kind of tailored Technet search.

    AutoPatcher is another 3rd party pack for 2000/XP/2003 (not recommended by MS).
    I have just found out, that they have made a pack for Vista, I am gonna check it out.
