Default windows updates

Is it possible to save windows updates to a cd or dvd to install on multiple machines without having to download to each machine? If I could save them or download to a folder I could burn them to a disk or even send them to other machines on my network and save a lot of time. I have never gotten an option to save them when downloading the updates. I know many can be uninstalled.

The best way to do this would be to use the AutoPatcher.

It is release just about monthly with all the current updates from SP2 to the current updates.

I do not accept support questions via EMail, PM, IM or my G+ page!

Phone: LG Optimus G Pro
Running: Stock JB from LG with Nova Launcher

Corporate won't go for that. They would give me the "Not approved software installation" line. Typically they are pretty hardline about what can be installed on company equipment. All MS all the time. Except for Novell. Can't understand that one. Oh well, that's the reason they hired me training in Novell.

If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the ain't your variables, it's your constant.
