Going to WindowsUpdate or installing BigFix (click here) will automatically find all the critical, important etc updates required.

Thank you for that but what I want, is a way of putting the updates on BEFORE even connecting to the internet, to avoid Sasser, Blaster and Welvchia type attacks

Yes, many, many thanks for that, I will do that BUT it still only takes us up to October 03, therefore no protection against Sasser or the latest Welchia
