Recent XP Updates? Really?

I just ran microsoft updates and there were no updates available, except the ones I had already listed as hidden, since I did not want them.
Reply #2: well I just downloaded all and installed, I will definitely start searching the Microsoft update catalog, :)

That is the only way you will get them. They are not introducing them via Microsoft Update at all for regular Win XP Home or PRo. Just the extended support for POSReady.
