> Subject: windows update download order
> Does the order at which one downloads patches and updated off windows
> matter in a similar fashion to it would if you were applying hotfixes
> The reason I ask is, by default, windows update wants you to d/l critical
> updates first. In the case of tonight, there are critical updates which
> older than SRP1 which is also on windows update.
> If I d/l critical updates, and reboot, then get the SRP1 off windows
> am I running any risks of having SRP1 overright something that the
> previously downloaded critical update has installed?
