I want to do a clean re-install of Windows XP. Is there anyway I can save all the critical updates or do I have to download them all over again

You will have to download them all over again. Or, if you have a high-speed
connection, get them now and burn them to CD.
(Remember - if you redo your computer, keep it off the Internet until you
either have the firewall on or you have installed at least SP1a, Update
Rollup 1 and KB835732 ( http://tinyurl.com/2vj4h ).) I suggest both things
be done.

Below this point you will find the Windows XP (32bit, English) editions
updates from SP1 and through the end of April 2004. You will also find some
other downloads (tweaks, plugins, extras) that you may find useful. If all
of this is put on one CD, you pretty much have a way to patch through May
2004 any Windows XP (32bit, english) machine without a network connection at
all.

You can install these in the order given, and if you (for whatever crazy
reason) substitute the individual packages in for the Rollup, those are in
order at the bottom of the post, just pretend they are up top with the
roll-up.


Windows XP SP1a:

** At the bottom of the post, the Rollup is broken down into component
patches. Why? I don't know - just in case that is needed.
