keeping the xp service pack

By buddyg1965 ·
Is there any way to download all the windows xp hotfixes and save them to use again when needed? If so, how ? Can I save the hotfixes already installed to be used again?

As a general rule, you cannot save installed software or updates for reuse.

You can download and save most of the Windows updates.

You can either use the Download section of and search for XP downloads, or you can use the Windows Update catalog:

For may updates, you can download the file by clicking on the read more link in the updates list.
