Automated Replaceemnt for Windows Updates

At one of my clients, I have a Windows 7 pro Pc in a 7 user Windows SBS 2003 domain. I replaced an old workstation alst novenber and I had problems getting Windows Update to run. I ran numerous fixes and then it updated for a few months and stopped again with the same error.  I have run the Readiness fix but nothing works long term so I’m not asking for a fix for that situation.
 
I installed Wsus Offline on the Pc yesterday and ran the Update Generator in the main Wsus folder and then ran the Update Installer in the client folder. That worked fine and the system now appears to be up to date. My question is can the process be automated so it keeps my selected products and runs the full update process weekly?
