How does Windows XP know there are software updates ?. Most people will say. since it contacts the microsoft website and than is looking for them, correct ?. But what if the Windows XP machine is not connected to internet at all, never, ever.. What if I have a windows xp machine which is now asking to download security updates etc.. but this special machine was and is never connected to internet, does not even have network or modem . It seems to me that windows has buildin software update requests otherwise how does it know !!!.. It is now asking, would you like to download the following security updates....... ???.
