Downloadable XP updates package beyond SP3?
I assumed that this would be a popular topic but I searched several times and didn't come up with anything. I apologize in advance if I just missed the answer...
I'm in the process of refurbishing some WinXP laptops and towers. I have SP3 downloaded and burned to CD that I can install standalone. But, when I connect a system to the internet, there's another huge number of files that have been released since then. I thought I'd see if anyone knew - is there any grouping of any/all of those files available that I can install offline and not have to repeatedly download the individual post-SP3 files over and over again?

SVTarHeel--MS continues to offer Security Updates for Win XP SP3 (but not SP2), and will do so until mid-2014. If you have Windows Updates set up to access them, you should be offered what MS considers Critical/Important.
WIN7 Ultimate SP1 64bit, IE 10, NTFS,
cable, MS Security Essentials, Windows 7 firewall

True, but with clean installs of XP + SP3, there is still something like 100MB of additional files to download for each system. I'm looking for a way to have a good portion of them available to install offline so that, when I do connect the system to the internet, there are only a few newer files for Windows Update to fetch. It looks like AutoPatcher might fit the bill.
