Not sure if it's OK for a new user to post something like that, but I really want to share this with as many as possible, so... Hello and welcome! Allow me to present my own... Unofficial Cumulative Windows XP Update It allows you to completely update your Windows XP computer, even if it doesn't have any Service Packs installed! The purpose of its creation was to collect all released updates, implement a user-friendly mechanism that installs them automatically, and release it as a single package. The mechanism works similiar to the actual Windows Updates, except you can als
OK, so, many packs and packages exist to enhance 98SE beyond its original state and well beyond its fully-Microsoft-updated state at this point. 98SE2ME 98SESP3 (3.55 as of this writing) There are other minor packages like NUSB and such but I'm mainly talking about the larger packs here.

I have learned already that tomasz86's and BlackWingCat's packages should not be installed together. For example, installing Un
Hello everyone! So, the other day, I was reading a blog post somewhere (lost the link) but it said that roughly 20% of Windows-based computers are still running Windows XP. This got me thinking about creating an unofficial "Microsoft Update" that will specifically aim to provide user-created hotfixes and updates. Now, the first step I decided to take, was to find a Service Pack 4, more or less, that will provide all of the Windows Updates post-SP3 to XP's end of life. I ended up finding that @harkaz is creating exactly what I was looking for. (http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/171171-introduci
