I mentioned three days ago in my blog that the Autopatcher team released the June 2007 patches for Windows Vista and just now they announced that the updates for XP can be downloaded as well from their sites. In case you missed the last post here is what Autopatcher does.
Autopatcher provides a single executable that includes all patches for the operating system that you are choosing either of the month - called Updates - or complete which are called core releases. After downloading you can execute the file and select if you want to install all patches or only the ones that affect your system by manually adding and removing patches from the list of available patches.
The following downloads are right now available at the Autopatcher website:
If you never installed patches before for your Windows XP system you should download the May 2007 core release and the June 2007 update which ensures that you can apply all patches to Windows XP that have been released by Microsoft.
This is a great way if you want to patch a system without Internet connection for instance or if you have to patch several computers and want to download the patches only once to save bandwidth.
Update: Autopatcher have changed the way the program and updates are delivered to the user. The site is now operated as a forum with a download area. The program itself has been updated several times to support new Microsoft products such as Windows 7 Service Pack 1, or Office 2010 as well. The program can be downloaded from the following location on the forum.Advertisement
