Windows 2000 will eventually be dropped as for as a supported product by Microsoft. At that time I am sure the Automatic Updates feature may be cut off. Also it is unlikely any further service packs will be released by MS for W2K from today to the day the product is no longer supported. Regardless, is there a way to manually download as EXE files each of the hotfix/patches without using Automatic Updates? In other words, if I wanted to burn a CD today of all the hotfixes/patches that were released AFTER service pack 4, can I do this? And if so, how?
