I am gonna wipe my pc and start fresh.

Ive got everythin backed up execept for Norton Internet security 2003 updates since last year.

Get onto the Microsoft web page, you can get a free disc from them with a lot of the updates on it this cuts the time down.I think the updates are covered up to Feb 2004.

Androcles I think hes on about the Norton updates not the Microsoft ones.

Braindead I think you're right.Perhaps we've got the wrong names!

No there is not anyway to backup these files. I am sure you must know someone near you that has BB that can download them onto a CD for you. The latest file dated 26-6-04 is 7.77mb in size and is a zip file which is self extracting.

I dont think you can do this becuase LiveUpdate has to install the updates itself to integrate them into the program- Standalone files may not get registered with LiveUpdate.
