  1. Fast Windows update method after Fresh Install or Repair

    Especially usefull for Engineers.

    Try Using AutoPatcher. (download from this site www.9down.com)
    and the latest is also available on Techspot

    Autopatcher has monthly updates for XP, 2000, 2003 and x64.

    download the updates starting with the full December 2005 through to Latest (usually last month). install each package starting with the full release but do not run autopatcher till you have installed all the downloads (autopatcher will append all the monthly updates and will install them all in one go).

    Autopatcher allows you to select or deselect any update and will detect any updates you already have, it also installs updates like Java, msn messenger, macromedia flash player, aspi drivers, Latest windows media player, dotnet framework 1.1 and 2, and more.

    Autopatcher also has useful tweaks and security settings, eg.. tweakui, show open with notepad on right click menu, put my computer,internet explorer,my documents, on desktop and more.

    You simply select all the options you require then run autopatcher and it will do all the above and only restart one time when all operations are done.

    As it is a stand alone program, you can copy the folder from program files directory and save to your USB flash drive, portable storage device, CD or DVD disk then execute the autopatcher.exe file to update any system you're working on.

    Have Fun
