I have the task of checking for any updates for Win XP Pro and downloading onto a stick for install into a number of internally networked machines running XP Pro SP3. Are there any such updates and if so, how do I get them and install them onto my non connected network machines?

Support for XP has ended so no more updates for this system

As they're offline then no need. If you enter information via disc or USB drives then the USB/DVD/ External drives will need to be scanned first on an online PC.

Most updates are to fix security holes, being non connected is the best security hole fix there is.

Unless information is added externally as I mentioned above.
