I have to use a backup which is dated 2/2/05 to restore my disk. Didn't
Microsoft have a deadline during this summer to for the "Windows Update"
package? What happens if you do not make the deadline? ... Lonnie ...

Q. "Didn't Microsoft have a deadline during this summer to for the "Windows Update" package?"

A. Not to my knowledge...

Are you referring to the patch that one could have applied to stop WU
from offering SP2? That expired in April, though you can still decline
to accept SP2. Other than that I know of no "deadline".
