@Muppet Hunter -- if TP gives his blessing we will proceed and pin a thread. I can put it at vorck.com OR simply put a redirect on my page. An important element is, of course, marking old KB's as replaced/obsolete so people can del them from the HF folder. As an added incentive, nearly everyone on the web is giving up maintaining these lists, so if you choose to proceed, your effort alone will drive a lot of traffic to MSFN. That would be a good thing. Scout around for well-maintained, non-abandoned Windows hotfix lists... you won't find many left.
BTW you also need patience for people who will IM you the SECOND that a fix comes out if you didn't make an update
Let me clear it with Tom though I am sure he'll be okay with pinning a thread and of course handing over the existing source, now frozen, for you to reformat any way you like for your own presentation.

Basically, what I've been doing is have a Win2K VM that is patched w/ SP4 + UpdateRollup, then run hfnetcheck with the MSSecure.xml file within the VM:
Grep the file for "\<Download URL\>", ie
hfnetchk -o xml2 -x mssecure.xml -vv -f hf.xml
Of which I can output the last forward-slash piece to a text file, (generally process the text with with gawk in a .cmd batch script) compare vs my HF folder, and have the download links even to fetch the files in question. I may see how an AHK script handles the whole shebang, instead of UnxUtils and .cmd batch.
YMMV, and you need an actual working copy of HFNETCHK which is pretty hard to find these days, I dunno if were even allowed to link to where a copy can be found.
I had given autopatcher a try a few times, to see how it handled just fetching the patches (as it downloads them from MS servers now). While it does a half-decent job with XP, it's a complete fail IRT Win2K. I was looking for a less time intensive way of building an updated central XP location for when I do the odd XP reinstall for family and friends. Since I don't keep up with XP in general. Even with AutoPatcher and a few other methods, every single time I need to build a current XP disk it winds up taking literally days of troubleshooting obscure issues. Especially OEM boxes which don't legally allow you to install a "real version of XP". After the most recent incident, I've pretty much stopped offering my help/time.

I was thinking that you could host the main list and I could re-edit the first post of the new thread with anything issued after patch Tuesday. I'll keep the same kind of format where deletions are listed. I'm ready for the dreaded IM's
Thanks, I'll take a look at hfnetchk.

Important: this update supersedes and replaces update KB955839 (deleted fom HFSVCPACK_SW1)
New update in August: KB968389 (Extended Protection for Authentication)
Posted 29 August 2009 - 06:24 AM
Windows Update Agent 3.0 was updated to version 7.4.7600.226. Here's the link to the updated version: http://download.wind...Agent30-x86.exe
I guess that on the list for XP the entry for WindowsXP-KB969898-x86-ENU.exe should be moved to the "have been replaced"-section, because it was superseded by WindowsXP-KB973346-x86-ENU.exe on July 14th 2009.
For the german speaking audience: http://patch-info.de.../2009/07/14/658
Muppet Hunter for maintaining the xp-list,
tommyp for this great peace of code and
everybody contributed either way.

Fixed typo (KB973346 instead of KB973349) in the first item - thanks to Trolleri for noticing that!
I'm preparing for a new install in near future, and was comparing my list of updates for WinXP SP3 with the official one maintained by Muppet Hunter.
I have a few remarks:
1) KB969898 (ActiveX killbits of June 09) is still listed, but was replaced by KB973346 (MS09-032, ActiveX killbits of July 09).
2) KB955839 (Timezone update of December 08) is still listed, but was replaced by KB970653 (Timezone update of August 09).
3) KB972636 (IE8 compatibility list of July 09) is still listed, but was replaced by KB973874 (IE8 compatibility list of August 09).
4) Windows Update Agent is linked with version 7.2.6001.788, but meanwhile version 7.4.7600.226 is available.
5) Not sure whether it makes sense to list the optional update KB968389 (Extended Protection for Windows Authentication) without at least mentioning that to activate it respective registry entries have to be set. An appropriate file to be included in HFSVCPACK is attached.

There's some more info here (under the green text) and some info on possible values for NoDriveTypeAutorun here.

I'm not sure what you mean by the DX redist or WU being important for Microsoft's browser, but the Junk Email Filter is probably something that's considered non-core. I'm open to ideas on the latter if anyone thinks it's worth including. Thanks for the links though, quite a few of which I'll include
Don't worry about posting MS Security Bulletin updates (ie the Patch Tuesday security fixes) as I have these covered. Virtually anything else is welcome though

The only other update possibly worth including in the future is the exFAT update, but by that time we'll all probably be using Windows 7 or 8

Dec 2008 (??) bugfix update WindowsMedia11-KB959772-x86-ENU.exe Wmp.dll 11.0.5721.5260
Replaced by :-
Aug 2009 critical update WindowsXP-WindowsMedia-KB973540-x86-ENU.exe Wmp.dll 11.0.5721.5268
Posted 21 September 2009 - 06:08 PM
WMP10 isn't covered at all and I'm not even sure if HFSLIP supports it. I'm thinking that either the references to WMP9 should be removed entirely or that I should add links to WMP9 hotfixes for people that want to stick with the vanilla XP install. The latter option would make the list a bit more consistent since it would follow the scheme used for Internet Explorer where links for IE6 and IE8 are supplied.
Any views appreciated.
Posted 28 September 2009 - 02:51 PM
Thanks for that, I'll include it when the next patch Tuesday comes around.
I think your link is probably the same file that is directly linked to on the hfslip updates page (which contains files from 24 August 2009).

when I told him no
Posted 07 October 2009 - 05:31 AM
It also seems to me that KB969805 may only apply to server editions of Win2K, but I could just be confused there as well. This isn't meant to be critical: I really appreciate this tool and wish I had taken the plunge years ago.
