Hrm, how about inventing an option (at install time) that places a very
restrictive firewall on the network connection by default, say, only
outgoing port 80 to windowsupdate.com (or even better, only let it
establish a secure tunnel there), so you can patch and then loosen the
firewall settings after that?<<

It doesn't address the issue. The requirement is that some MS customers need
to patch without putting the machine on the internet. For whatever reasons.

Is that such an unreasonable request?
