    Windows XP Home SP1


    I am helping a lady that her harddrive went bad so Dell put in a new one. I put the antivirus and some programs back on for her but I went to windows updates cause there should be a whole lot of updates there such as sp1 and all the updates that sp1 would have now (I told her she does not want sp2 right now) so where do I get the updates and how do I know what updates should be downloaded, it does not show any updates in add/remove programs and at the windows update site it only showed one update which I downloaded, but there has to be a whole bunch, anyone know anything about this?? Where to get the ones she needs and what ones they are??, Hope so Thanks

    Is the dell backup disk SP1 or SP2? If it SP1 it wont show alot of updates, until the latest update software is installed. It will then show all the available SP2 updates. At that time, you can choose manually, and select all critical except SP2.

    See if it is XP SP1 in the system properties, see image

    I am not used to working with dells, I did not no they had a disk that came with it for sp1 or sp2, if thats what you mean?? I will look, I won't be there till tommoruw late morning, I think!!! I think when I looked earlier tonight on the system properties it did not say which it was. So your saying there should be a disk that came with it that has sp1 or 2 on it and I can download it and then anyother ones I need will show up on windows update site???
