Hello,

I'm assuming that by 'without the internet' you mean without having to go to http://update.microsoft.com

As long as you have a legitimate copy of Windows XP, go into Control Panel, and set Automatic Updates to Automatic.

At the specified time, windows will automatically search for system updates, download them in the background and install them (depending on your Automatic Update preferences).

no
 
i said manually. if i cant explain it, well for the sake of argument:

let's say, i had two computers, and one, for certain reasons which are impossible to get into, could not access the internet, and it had to be updated wthin an hour, so buying the updates on CD was out of the question. so i need to download the updates from one computer, WITHOUT the internet reading my computer, and then putting it on disc and updating other computer.

basically, i want no information about my computer(apart from the usual data sent to any website) from my computer sent to microsoft update site, but i want to update XP. not automatically, and without the update site checking my computer.

So, basically, your comp would fail the WGA test...

Warez link is your best bet.
