Can I save a windows update file?

By dms96960
Feb 13, 2008
  1. Due to my location, I must suffer through dial-up modem connection with a download speed of between 0.7 to 6 kbps. I am NOT joking about this. However, when I travel, I have access to broadband with my laptop. Is there any way that I can save those GIGANTIC windows update files on my laptop and then load them on my desktop when I return home?

    Thanks.

    Take a look at
    www.autopatcher.com
    They use to have a really good program, but now they use a much smaller one that automatically downloads all MS updates, which can be then copied to a CD (to use at a later time)

    Thanks for the tip kimsland. The site is a little confusing to me but I will try to understand it.
