    Hi All


    Just a quick question, I have put my OS on a bootable usb and also saved drivers for that particular computer and now I have downloaded other updates for the OS so I don't have to download again if I want to re-install on the computer again or another computer


    How ever the other updates such as service pack 1 and security updates etc will only let me install them individually, is there a program available that would allow me to have those updates installed automatically one after the other, and or choose which ones to install and then install them one after the other


    I just need a point in the right direction, not having much success in finding anything on the net. something simple that is not a huge process if there is such a thing would be great


    Windows 7 Pro is the OS I am using


    Thanks in advance, much appreciated

    Hi I'll give it a shot. Why don't you get a external HD and create regular back up images.
    I know of no other way to save windows updates. Are you aware how to create back up images of your OS with programs like Macrium Reflect??

    There is a program called WSUS Offline. http://download.wsusoffline.net/ .This allows you to choose your Windows platform and download all the critical updates for it and create an ISO file. You burn this ISO file and put it into the newly installed computer and it will patch it automatically. Note that non-critical updates still need to be fetched with a Windows Update.

    Thanks Donetao and Lunarlander much appreciated that you answered, yes I do, do images on my external and those are very helpful in saving info when on the rare occasion I get a virus that I can not remove, but the current image I have had, its the longest I have kept this image, and usually every year or so I start from scratch and do a clean image from the ground up. I just thought on those occasions it would take less time if I had the basic image, the service packs and drivers and at least some other updates going on all at once, its not a big thing, just thoughts going through my mind on ways to make a clean image from scratch as I have lots of programs to add to it as it is without just adding the basics when I want to start again. Lunarlander I will down load and play around with this program and see what is does, will let you know sooner or later how I have done, thanks so much,

    Hi Beanie! Sounds like a good plan to me!! I don't add many new Apps. I have a current image of my OS that I made after a clean install with all my Apps. I would just have to down load all those windows up dates. Not that bad, but it does take time. It would be cool if you could down load them all at one time. I think that's what your trying to accomplish??? I'll watch this thread and see how it goes!!
    Thanks for the feed back and you are quite welcome!!
