A followup to a question about an error that has shown up as a result of an XP update. My question is: will the fix show up on an update, or do we have to manually download the hotfix.

Here is the answer for the other question from cin59city

After the installation of the patch Security Update for Windows XP (KB925902) I got the same problem.  This is a known issue with this patch and the solution is below.  I downloaded and installed the hotfix and the issue was solved on my PC.

As haim96 said - it will not appear in Automatic Update for install - it is a "hotfix" as opposed to a "critical update".
You would have to do a manual download and install - unless you had WSUS installed on your network - then you could push out this update to your clients:
