View Full Version : Tweaking Windows

I'm having trouble downloading autopatcher. It gets to about 90% done and gives me errors. Are there any other apps that will help me get windows updates, and more importantly, tweak my windows settings the way autopatcher does?

not used the program or heard of it before .but at the size of the program from the web site it seemed a little large for what its design to do.
i just use windows update service and happy.
are you using windows xp or vista or some other os ?

XP. I think it's big cause it includes all the XP updates in it so you don't have to downlaod them through the windows website one at a time. which is a pain when you reinstall windows.
i guess i'm more interested in the tweaking XP part than the actual updates.

for me the update pain -really not a savings as you still need to shut down and restart im sure as it loads them -i think all its really will do is send one big download to your computer and then install .in place of downloading them in lots of files at diffrent times.but i could be mistaken.

yup. that's the whole point, i believe. i'm not sure if you'll have to continuously reboot, but it supposedly makes it easier than doing them from the mocrisoft website individually.

You can download the service packs for XP from Microsoft and put them on a CD which you can use to fairly quickly install them. I did that the last time. Won't have everything but through SP3 will cover a big chunk of them.
