I'm of the impression that when you download the modules, the files downloaded are 'all' the critical updates for XP ... as detected by a 'search' or detection process concerning my specific computer. If this is the case, then here's my dumb question....
In comparing the Update files process, from MS, I come up with quite a few that are not in the list from APUP. Nevertheless, with this initial process, I made a note of those ... and then let APUP install the ones from the MS list that were in the APUP list. All the others that had been checked automatically, I unchecked.
At this point, I 'assumed' that with the next detection process from MS update, things might straighten out a bit.
Nope! The same ones that were not in the original APUP listing, are still needed as determined by MS update.
So ... why does not APUP, with it's initial 'detection' process ... or master downloaded files, reflect all the updates from day one?
In closing, let me qualify my dumb question by stating that I am not doubting APUP at all. In fact, I am one that really appreciates all the effort that has been put forth to keep it going. It's just that I am one confused ... newbie.
