(Updated July 2019) I am posting this message as an alternative to the (not MS Official) WinXP SP4 Update Package. HERE, I kept having stability problems (PC Crashes) after installing the SP4 Package. Which proves NOTHING about whether to use the SP4 Package. MANY others have used the SP4 Package with NO PROBLEM and get a good result. But the SP4 Package is NOT a 'Microsoft Official' Package either. WinXP_SP3_Updates_Hotfix_List.txt <-- Download (View) this FILE, attached at bottom of THIS MESSAGE here. https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com Download individually KB Updates (Hotfixes) from above (Official Microsoft) URL As far as SEARCHING for the 'KB UPDATES' -- this seems to have gotten WORSE than it was. WindowsXP-KB892130-ENU-x86.exe <-- I could NOT get this to LIST at the 'MS Catalog KB UPDATES' site. But GOOGLE Search = "Windows XP KB892130" did display a URL download (MS Official site). http://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com <-- Search = "Windows XP" It lists categories like "Critical Updates" , "Updates" , "Service Packs" , etc. Mostly, using say Search = "KB946648" will list the item for download -- but NOT always. Best of luck on the Searching, you may be better at it than me. So first, install (re-install) the WinXP SP3 (Service Package 3). Hopefully then, WinXP is rebooting and stable for you. Then you can MANUALLY install the UPDATES to WinXP SP3 (Hotfixes) via using the FILE LIST (attached here). Download and Install the KB FILES (*.EXE) from the 'MS UPDATE CATALOG' website. So, you just 'grind through' installing the LONG list of KB UPDATES for WinXP in a 'one at a time' basis. This is TIME CONSUMING but simple, and you can eventually get it done. http://icrontic.com/article/repair_windows_xp Finally, IF you continue to have PROBLEMS with WinXP, consider to use the SYSTEM REPAIR feature via RECOVERY CONSOLE of WinXP (using the official WinXP Install CD, boot up with that). THAT should definitely get you back to a STABLE WinXP situation. This should give you a CLEAN REGISTRY type situation with WinXP. THEN, you can install SP3 (Service Package 3). And THEN, you can install the KB UPDATES as described. Hopefully, you get most all of the 'critical' KB UPDATES for WinXP SP3 installed properly. This is more a 'minimum reasonable' suggestion for WinXP SP3 and KB UPDATES. IF the WinXP SP4 Package works for you, that might well be a better choice. WinXP OS is NOT supported officially anymore. However, there are BROWSERS that support WinXP. (NEW MOON Browser = 'Pale Moon' fork by @roytam1) is updated to work with websites via WinXP.

Hi, I've been looking to install 2K in a VM and want to have the most updated system as possible. I've been searching everywhere for an installer for the 2K Rollups from user tomasz86 among others, but all I can find are old threads on here and at RyanVM.net, dead links to Google Drive, and some other users' sites which are spottily preserved on Internet Archive. I don't see much of anything newer than 2012 or so. Tomasz' windows2000.tk page is still up, but you have to download all the updates manually and it's very tedious. I thought I had seen screenshots of a Rollup installer awhile back on http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/152194-discontinued-update-rollup-2-for-windows-2000/ but even in the page title it says that the project is discontinued. What's the status of this? Is the project dead? Am I missing something, some other way to download the updater?
Hi -X-, using the post SP3 fixes from your latest list (http://xdot.tk/updates.html) I'm successfully installing Windows XP except for one high priority fix IE8-WindowsXP-kb2879017-x86-ENU.exe which is in your list but is not integrating and still is being asked for by Windows update. I therefore moved up to the top of the list the following fix: IE8-WindowsXP-x86-ENU.exe. Hey, it worked. the aforementioned fix is now integrating successfully. Could you please change the order in your list? Am I the only one who has to make this change to the list? Best regards, Gideon.
