All those charming Windows XP updates downloaded to somewhere on the HD before they installed, but I sure can't find them.

In previous Windows versions, there was a conveniently identified Windows Updates directory, which you could empty out to recover space. Any such directory in XP Pro?

XP's convenient features eat HD drive space in huge double-handfulls.....

Cheers,
Peyton
