Go to "Find Updates, etc"- choose the proper version of XP you have (more than likely you DON'T have the 64 bit version). Then on checkout, you can browse to an area on your HD to download the updates. Create a folder first and call it something like "Updates", then burn it to a CD-R.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
