    > Hi all,
    > I just recently accessed the windows update website and was
    > prompted to install additional software in order for my XP
    > system to utilize v5 of WindowsUpdate.
    > After I installed it, it automatically started downloading
    > XP-SP2-RC2. I couldn't cancel the download as it was deemed a
    > 'Critical Update'. Now, SP2RC2 is already residing on my
    > system, and since I have no wish to install a beta software,
    > how do I tell WindowsUpdate that i do not wish to update the
    > downloaded file?
    > On a related note, where does WindowsUpdate save the
    > downloaded file? I would like to send the file over to my
    > friend who is interested in SP2RC2 but he has no Internet
    > access. If I can find the file, I would like to burn a copy
    > on CD for him.
    > Thanks in advance for any input given!
