Formerly known as "Jimmy Shelter".

Then one appeared among us, in our own form visible, but greater and more beautiful; and he said that he had come out of pity.

I'm like the Clint Eastwood of backups. I drift into town, say "ahm-a gonna clean up yer backups", shoot the place up a bit, get rid of the bad guys, then drift back out again.

Been there, done that, still doing it.

XP machine ain't on the domain so this would be the local policy only.

Any particular reason why the XP machine can't be joined to the domain? That would seem to be the most obvious solution.

comment Total Virtual Memory in Windows XP 32bit
You're better off not using the /3GB switch unless you know for certain that you need it. Generally only large databases really need it. Only having 1 GB of address space for the OS stuff can actually be detrimental to performance most of the time.

comment Is there a machine readable list/feed of Microsoft update files?
It actually occurs to me that one valid reason for wanting neither WU nor WSUS might be if you wanted to copy off the patches for an unconnected machine, but I guess the OP would have said that if so.
