Windows 7: Are there Offline W7 Update Managers available? Any suggestions?

Are there Offline W7 Update Managers available? Any suggestions?

Hi we have a computer that holds membership details, contact details, bank account details of our clients.

We made the decision not to put the computer on the network because of the sensitivity of the data and there is nothing so certain as no connection at all !!

Ive been asked to keep the machine up to date with windows updates. In the beginning this was easy because before the database was added to the machine the updates could be run automatically. Now im not sure how to do this other than manually which will take too long and the machine is out of date by about a year.

Ideally I need a package that can do exactly what windows 7 update online can do but offline.

Any ideas? Thanks R
