»What is an upgrade pack?

The WinFuture Update Pack is a collection of the most important patches, Microsoft has made available for Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 for download.

These updates close loopholes in the operating system that may be exploited or could adversely affect system stability.

With our Update Pack, you have the ability to download all the patches at once and can then install automatically in turn.

»What versions are there and how do these differ?

Our update packs are available in two versions. These differ only by the number of patches and set the system requirements.

Full version - it includes all relevant patches that Microsoft has been available for download. Ideal if you want to bring one or more newly installed Windows operating systems on the most recent state without downloading the updates separately.

Upgrade - There are only released by Microsoft on the last patch-day updates included. This variant is ideal for systems that are installed, the latest edition of our Update Pack and you can get them from here.

Even if the patches were recorded in the previous month appeared on another path, you should choose this version. So Windows can be made without downloading the much larger full version to date.

»What conditions must be met?

To install our Update Pack, you must be in possession of a 32-bit Windows XP or Windows Vista operating system. For Windows 7, we offer jeweilse a 32-bit and 64-bit edition of. Please note that Windows XP must be installed at least Service Pack 2. Should this not be the case, denied the fix pack to start. However, we recommend that you install Service Pack 3 and then install from our Update Pack for Windows XP SP3.

Download for :

Windows XP SP3

Don't get me wrong... but what's wrong with using the regular Windows Update? Why would somebody want to install another one :blink:

Windows update takes forever, and on a clean install on XP and Vista thats like 80+ updates that you have to install and download one at a time and restart several times. This installs all of them in one shot.

Um. Hasn't anyone heard of service packs? That's what they're meant for.


Download the installation file and burn it to a disk, that way you won't have to download them from WU.

Get them fast. I doubt that Microsoft will allow this. Nobody is allowed to redistribute updates. Several authors have received a "Cease and desist" for doing the same. That is why programs like Autopatcher just distribute a script for you to download the updates yourself...

I also have to say, security wise, you'd be an idiot to install updates from any other source than WU. I don't see this lasting long...

This download packages are existing for years now. In Germany there are many webpages that provide such packs. :rolleyes:
I doubt there is anything illegal about it.

About security: as I said before this website is very popular, not international but in Germany it is. I made same practical work for an IT-company and I was even told to download the service packs from this site so that they can use them without a network connection. I'm sure they knew what they were doing.

Do those update packs reduce the OS stability? I think reviews are needed to convince

more users (not only in Germany).

I think this is what you mean, right?
Translated from FAQ

#3: What happens if I've already got a patch?
Basically each update included in the update pack will be installed. But if the installer notices that an update is already installed he will just skip it and go on with the next update.
