I was wondering if we could still get all the windows updates from microsoft website all the way up to the last of them still.

I would like to clean reload windows xp on it and sell it.

I know it won't run windows 7 home or pro.

Not only are all of the previous XP updates still available, with a simple registry mod you can continue to get new updates for XP until April 2019: http://www.extremetech.com/computing/18 ... of-updates

Assuming you do not want to slipstream it. Then it is way faster to download the updates and install them via CD/DVD/USB. I like WSUS Offline (German/English), lots of nifty options and a disk burner/USB format loader built in. Version 9.2.1 was the last to support XP; Legacy Products tab. This will update to the end of support date (4/8/14) updates. Then Scott's link will add to it if you wish.

I have indeed, it works exactly as described. For users still running XP even with the updates turned back on I do recommend using an alternate browser such as Firefox or Chrome.

Thanks!! I think the DVD turned out well, over 3 hours of content this time. Let me know what you think after you see it. Scott.

Speaking of Windows XP updates, I believe that the registry mod I mentioned in the 2nd post could save the Navy $31M: http://money.cnn.com/2015/06/26/technol ... index.html

I did that and it work. I also install Firefox and I also install vipre antivirus internet security and I found a few viruses that AVG didn't find been on this computer for a long time but I have not use this computer in a very long time. So I got it all clean up and got most of the updates. one thing I did do because java no longer support windows xp I had to uninstall java and I don't think I need it.

However I also install adobe flash and shockwave. I'm not sure about the IE 8.0 that got install on here but anyways things are a little better. oh by the way the dell laptop I told you about the power and why it won't boot up from a cold start seems to be getting worst. I'm thinking about replacing it with a thinkpad with windows 10.

Now do you recommend windows 10? or wait until 10.1 to come out LOL.

I should give you the specs on this desktop and maybe you could tell me if I can run windows 7 pro or maybe windows 10 pro on here. I'll post it in the desktop later on
today.

thanks.

While Java may not technically be supported on XP it still does work fine: https://www.java.com/en/download/faq/winxp.xml

I'm still testing things but so far I'd recommend Win7 over 10, especially for hardware more than a couple of years old. Scott.
