I'm sorry you dont like the answer of no, but this is an acceptable answer. I have to object to the question being closed this way.

BTW here's a script I use to push out updates for this very reason.

modify to your environment

sExePath = "\\server\patches\WindowsXP-KB927891-v3-x86-ENU.exe" 
sSwitches = "/u /q /z" 
 
 
Set oShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell") 
 
 
sRegKey = "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate" 
 
 
' suppress error in case values does not exist 
On Error Resume Next 
 
 
' check for marker 
sRegMarkerValue = ""  ' init value 
sRegMarkerValue = oShell.RegRead( sRegKey & "\WindowsXP-KB927891-v3-x86-ENU.exe") 
On Error Goto 0 
 
 
' to be sure update is installed only once, test on marker 
If sRegMarkerValue <> "yes" Then 
 
 
   oShell.Run Chr(34) & sExePath & Chr(34) & " " & sSwitches, 1, True 
 
 
   ' create marker 
   oShell.RegWrite sRegKey & "\WindowsXP-KB927891-v3-x86-ENU.exe", "yes" 
End If
