I have a Windows 98 pc at work and I need to install the MS06-026 update however cant get out to the internet. Firewall issue at the moment. This means I cannot get to the windows update site to have it automatically updated. Is there a way to download this patch from another pc? I can't find anything out there to help me with this. This patch has to be installed today but I can't figure out how to get it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. BTW, I have called Microsoft but they are no longer supporting win98 issues.

try putting MS06-026 download in at the microsoft home page search. download it and use floppy disk or flash drive and install it

Thank you for your quick response. I have tried that already and I always come back to the bulletin however nothing to click on to actually download the update.

ok - ill see if i can have a look. stay online and will get back to you.

your right - no download link - it says its critical but if you cant get online then it cant get to you.

Besides you wont get it from any pc because as you said they recently stopped support for win 98 and me.

As long as you have virus protection you should be ok. But you cant do much about it because they havent any more support.

IF worst comes to worst it might just be time for an upgrade to win xp or if you can wait - vista.
