Have you considered implementing WSUS? (it is free and will allow you to centrally deploy this to all your clients)

Do you see SP2 for XP by chance?  What version of WSUS are you currently running?

No, that is installed on all the pc's already. It says build 2.0

If your WSUS is running on Windows Server 2003, then I would recommend upgrading to version 3.0 SP1 since it is much easier to manage.  In the meantime, from the WSUS console, you can click the "options" button in the top right hand corner, then click "automatic approval options".  In the "Approve for Installation" section, click the "add/remove classifications", and check to see if "service packs" are checked.

my service packs were not checked. So I checked them and prompted for it to synchronize.
