Is there any way to manually download all post-windows xp sp3 updates/hotfixes,
then save them in a .cab for some kind of offline update after MBSA does the
offline scan

Almost all security updates and most non-security updates can be downloaded from
the Microsoft Download Center. For security updates it is usually easiest to
start from the Security Bulletin list:

<http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/current.aspx>

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/current.aspx

Those few updates that aren't available from the download center can be found in
the Microsoft Update Catalog.

I mean, is there a way to have an option to install the updates instead of
the download option?

Like edit the program some way to install the updates, and include them in
the offline cab.

Am I making sense?

I'm not sure. Are you asking if MBSA can install the updates for you? If so,
no, it can't.

Is there some kind of work around for this, like writing a vbs script to do
it. Because I know there is a script (vbs) that does the scan.
