Maybe some people have already noticed this-
When you download patches from Windows Update, before the last patch is completed or before the install begins, kill the process.
Close every thing and go back to windows update and select the same patches.
They appear to download at an incredible speed!
They were actualy stored in a folder somewhere on your computer and Windows Update found them and resumed the download/install.
Why the hell then does this not apply to ALL downloads? From anywhere?
Just tired of downloads that fall asleep at say 597/650 mb.
Something to do with ActiveX I'm sure but hmmmmm........
* note: you can save some time on your next instal using this trick too. Start the download and copy the saved updates from last time into the temp folder that update just made. it'll install them as if it had just downloaded new ones.
