    Another Windows Update Alternative?


    Just stumbled across this tool from Developer Mike C (WSUS Offline Update - Update Microsoft Windows and Office without an Internet connection) care of the HowToGeek website. It's called WSUS Offline Update, and it's kept reasonably current by its developer. Apparently, it helps to address at least some of the various Windows Update issues that have been popping up with such frequency lately. You may want to check it out!

    Thanx Ed, don't mean to knock the app... but there seems an awful many fixes... which means one has to re-dowload each time? anyways it's been around for a while now....so.

    Note that it will only download KB's that are in MS Security Bulletins, which are all the critical and important downloads; so you will still have to do a Windows Update afterwards to fetch the ordinary non-critical updates.
