Hello! I'm planning to install Windows XP Home with
Service pack one, from a CD. I'd like to download the
most critical patches before I upgrade, and burn them to a
CD, so I can apply them before I plug in my internet. Can
anyone point me at a list of 'Apply Me Right Now' level
patches for this edition? Thanks in advance.

Hi,

As long as you enable the native firewall before connecting to the 'net, you
should be fine. You should also not be connected to the 'net while you are
upgrading. Updating immediately after the upgrade should be safe enough.

However, you can go to the Windows Update site with any machine, and click
on catalog in the left column. Then select WinXP Home with SP1 from the list
and choose all the critical updates for download. Alternately, you can also
order the free security CD which has them all through October 2003:

I suggest three downloads burned to CD/installed onto the system and one
preventative measure before ever connecting your newly installed Windows XP
computer to the Internet.

1) Windows XP SP1a
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/updates/sp...
or
http://snipurl.com/4ow7
** In your case - if this is already slipstreamed into your CD (it says
"SP1" on it), then you don't have to get this one.

2) Update Rollup 1 for Microsoft Windows XP

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyI...
or
http://snipurl.com/2qdx

3) Security Update for Microsoft Windows - Sasser

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyI...
or
http://snipurl.com/64oy

4) Install the three above things onto your Windows XP install before ever
connecting the PC to the Internet in ANY way. Once you have those three
installed, then turn on the Internet Connection Firewall built into Windows
XP and you may now connect to the Internet with a bit more confidence.

5) Once connected to the Internet, go to the Windows Update site (
http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/ ) and scan for and install any and all
"Critical" updates.

That should make the computer a much more stable device and definitely a bit
more secure. It also will prevent any incidents of Sasser/Blaster from
infecting your PC upon first contact with the Internet.

You have several other options, as well.

You could create a new Windows XP CD with all of the patches (practically)
rolled up (slipstreamed and/or installed before the first GUI boot) in it.
One of the best resources on the Internet I have found on this and the likes
is at http://unattended.msfn.org/ - which will (forums and just the page
itself) walk you through how to make a very complete install CD of Windows
XP.

You could order the the Windows Security Update CD from
http://www.microsoft.com/security/protect/cd/order.asp and wait on it to get
to you.

You could download most of the updates for Windows XP (SP1a and beyond) and
burn them all to CD and install them from there before connecting to the
Internet. The list is quite long and I have slacked in updating it since
May, but here is that list:

Below this point you will find the Windows XP (32bit, English) editions
updates from SP1 and through the end of May 2004. You will also find some
other downloads (tweaks, plugins, extras) that you may find useful. If all
of this is put on one CD, you pretty much have a way to patch through May
2004 any Windows XP (32bit, english) machine without a network connection at
all.

You can install these in the order given, and if you (for whatever crazy
reason) substitute the individual packages in for the Rollup, those are in
order at the bottom of the post, just pretend they are up top with the
roll-up.

Thankyou, Shenan. This weekend I am setting up my niece's
newly-built computer. I have broadband, she has dialup so
you have saved me hours of waiting for Windows Update
to complete.
Thanks again, John
