Service packs are introduced every now and then which are big packages of all of the previous updates, so you only have to reboot once.

It is possible to make a disc with all of the updates that you need to install, but I don't know how many times you need to reboot, all I know is that it saves you the hassle of downloading them all again.

WSUS Offline Update - Update Microsoft Windows and Office without an Internet connection

Tick the Windows 7 / Server 2008 R2 and the Create ISO option (whichever of the two suits you best). Then hit the big Start button at the bottom

There's quite a few, so it might take a while to download them all!

Before trying the WSUS Offline Updater, I thought it would give me a collection of files that needed to be updated on the computer, then I could find those updated files, whether separately or in a giant pack. Unfortunately the program doesn't do what I was hoping.

Any other method to updating a Windows7 computer, without any internet connection ?

I'm afraid not. As far as I know, WSUS Offline is as close as you're going to come to a solution.
