Re: XPSP3_QFE_UpdatePack for Windows XP Post-SP3 20170518

Why waste your time and NOT include the last two or so years of continued updates by excluding the POS updates?

You should consider the uSP4, just slip stream it into your original source and you will have a tight OS with great security! Due to the optimizations present, it will be really quick OS!
