Default Re: Useful Software

Windows Updates Downloader.

Not to be confused with any native Windows utility. Very useful if you want to archive updates or slipstream them....or you simply want to avoid IE as much as possible.

I never even considered this until you mentioned it, but authentication can be avoided in other ways. This is not the reason that the program was created, so I would hardly consider that a major reason for using the program. If MS thought so, I imagine that they would design their system in a fashion to prevent it's use, like they have done with other browsers. Using a non-MS browser has nothing to do with piracy.

If you want to pirate then its easy enough to do straight from MS. I think those sites have a place or at least had a place when XP's Windows Update was IE-based. I hated installing the WGA stuff. It could get pretty annoying jumping through Microsoft's hoops just to get an update.
