Since buying a new PC about 14 months ago (with XP Home installed) I have
automatically received critical / security windows updates via the internet.
There seem to have been an awful lot of them, & I do not have broadband.

If I were to have a PC problem, I might have to reinstall Windows from
scratch. Would I have to then download all the updates again?
Do any of the XP magazines include the updates on their CDs (I've looked,
but not seen any).

Do I need service pack 2 ?

Thanks

KK

You would need to download the updates again as you have been automatically receiving
them. If you were to consider SP2, then have a look at the following information:-
