    Critical Updates.

    According to the Windows 2000 critical updates page, there are a couple of new critical updates out. The problem is that in true MS fashion, the links are broken. Has anyone heard of the updates or know where they can actually be found. Does anyone else think that broken links on the critical updates page is not good enough. This has been the situation for several days.

    I tried 'Search for a download' and Windows Update Catalog. I don't use 'automatic updates' so I need a place I can download the updates and then apply them remotely.

    sorry to break it to you dude but ms quite making every critical update available for download. You'll have to use windows update...im assuming you're not using it cause you're applying it to a network? Just make a windows script to run the download on all hte computers, or just run around to each one and do it by hand

    But yeah, you're stuck dude.

    The update links have now been removed, so I assume someone at Microsoft stuffed up. Possibly, they will be released in the near future. Thanks for your help.
