Is there a difference between security updates and patches? Does Windows XP Update tool do both of them or just the security updates and the patches need to be done manually? Can someone shed some light on it, I work at a place with 5 servers and 50 workstations and we don't have WSUS or something like that  running, we only have GP set to do Windows Updates or regular basis, is this sufficient to get ALL available security and updates?
