Thanks Nazgul I don't see 900732 on the Microsft FTP site.

You at least confirmed that my Idea of checking FTP is not the way to find all updates.
Unless, Microsoft updates there FTP server latter.

There goes my FTP search program I was going to make. :(
I guess I could do brute force but that is a lot of wasted time.

May I ask how/where you find these new updates?
I would like to learn.

Google and MSN search of KB900732 does not return anything.

Doing a google search of a KB article usually won't turn up much. You have to search the microsoft knownledge base.

So what would you have searched for in this case to find 900732?

I assume I am using the right site to search http://support.microsoft.com/search/?adv=1

I tried searching by Article ID: 900732 and got nothing
I also tried searching using Title Only, Full Text, and Error Message
I also tried Keywords: kbie600fix kbwinxppresp3fix kbwinserv2003sp1fix kbqfe kbfix kbbug kbmsccsearch kbpubtypekc KB900732
from the bottom of the KB article and nothing I tried returned KB900732.

Ohh crap. Got to add something else to the pack...

This will be a good incentive to try and fix some of the problems with the beta. Maybe I can get those few errors in QFEcheck to stop.

fluid, how about you compile a list of ones on that site that already aren't included/obsoleted in my pack? Of course, since it's my suspicion that their source is this site, you may be wasting your time ;)

KB893249 - Device Manager malfunctions after you install Windows XP Service Pack 2

Is this one necessary for integration? I can't find the fixccs.exe on my Windows XP CD.

I also have an accurate list of all obsolete Internet Explorer updates so people don't report old updates. If you have a new obsolete hotfix, report it too. I'm always interested :P :

:: KB899812 - Error message when you use Internet Explorer 6 to view a Web page that hosts an ActiveX control

P.S. Ryan: Don't take any hotfixes out of the pack to circumvent the slow install. Choose to 'temporary' disable SFP while keeping the catalog files.
