Sorry, i may have used a worng word for that, i'm brazilian, my english isn't that good, lol.
Needed??? Hotfixes are fixes for non-widespread, non-critical issues, which is developed fast and hasen't gone through as much regression-testing as the normal updates...
"i have found at least 20 updates in there that are needed in the update process."
Also, since HFSLIP allready is using the QFE branch of the updates, then the files in the updates allready include the fixes from the hotfixes(only for the included files in the updates that is...)
A good word would be as optional updates, and also, you that obviously knows more about updates Tommyp could take a better look on them.
In HF folder:
All of this ones were taken from thehotfixshare, i know that may be not all of them are available in every language and so far will sometimes be hard to acquire them, but they still are hotfixes that could or not be added to the list.
They are optional, and still have to check if they are not replaced already.
What i can say for sure is that i have tried using them with nlite to see if any problems related to older updates beeing used and so far it showed me only five(or something like that) updates that were replaced that i already removed from my list.
Also i think you could remove this:
missing (S): HF\WindowsXP-KB960225-x86-PTB.EXE (MS09-007: SChannel (Secure Channel))
as this check in my opinion is not need 'cause it's replaced, only the new one sould be checked.
Ok guys, new list checked and re-checked everything twice.
The versions are organized in this way: KB - files - original version - update version.
I have removed "5.1.2600." from the updates that have only 4 digits in versions.

This ones i could'nt get their version
I agree this aren't exactly essential updates, i do use them because i like to be on the end point of updates, what could be done is to add another category like HOTFIXES, or if you don't think they are usefull to trash list, shaushaushau.
There are some updates that aren't needed, i removed in the beginning until i have realized that someone else could use to see the not needed aswell.
Sorry to take so long but i wasn't home until yesterday.
