    Hi everyone,

    Does anyone know how to get Windows XP *fully* updated?
    Not all updates are offered on Windows Update.

    For example, I just did a clean install of XP on an old laptop (giving it to someone who needs a computer) and I installed all the updates from Windows Update (and checked repeatedly until there were no more remaining).

    Unfortunately, I found out shortly after that XP is not able to read exFAT formatted flash drives, so I had to download and install the KB955704 update manually to add exFAT support.

    Clearly there are important updates which are not offered on Windows Update, so where can a person go to get a complete list of all updates that are available?
