Use WSUSOffline

WSUS Offline Update - Update Microsoft Windows and Office without an Internet connection

You can download all of the updates, burn them to a disc, then install them all at the same time. It's a lot faster to install them this way, not to mention that you only have to download them once.

Thanks Tom! It's too late now, but I will keep this in mind for future reference.

We wouldn't have to sweat out all of the idiosyncrasies of syntax and grammar of software infrastructure and rudimentary expressions but instead spend time on the real creativity of programming--coming up with abstract concepts and ideas that would be converted automatically by computer into functional programs.

Sorry... guess it had been a while since I'd gotten this off my chest.
Got thrown out of programming class for using my finger.

New Windows 7 installation is complete. Hurray! Its nice to have a leaner, meaner copy of 7 running on my PC. My old copy was installed when 7 first came out, so it was time.

There's a shortage of staff at work now since someone has left, so have to do even more overtime over the next couple of weeks, but my manager is hoping to get someone after Christmas, and then change my hours to Saturday's only which will be better

I'm also suffering from very slow Internet connection, and I'm just tired

Hi LPt! Yup, I am happy with the result. The new install is running better on my SSD than the old one did. The whole process took about 2 hours, mainly because my internet service is rather slow.
