There is "Autopatcher" software, free. It downloads all updates from M$ 
site you might need and then you start the process of silent 
installation of patches. It can take 3-4 hours to update everithing (IE, 
Adobe, .Net, ...) but there are not many reboots, 2-3 maybe, depends.
When you reboot just start paching process again and it will pick where 
it left off.

And NEVER EVER leave Automatic update..... EVER. If you do, better shoot 
  your self in the head, it will heart far less.
