As I found yesterday, it took 48 hours or so for Microsoft's servers, ISP caches etc to all be updated reliably.
The script has now been updated by Erik.
See Here (posts #3 through #6) if you want to know the details.

lucky yours. so far, the only one thing that has changed into my language is the release date
Posted 13 August 2008 - 07:33 AM
"Microsoft Security Advisory (953839) Cumulative Security Update of ActiveX Kill Bits"
Download links flow from This KB article
Details are as follows:
Classification: High Priority, Non-Security, Update Rollups
Supersedes: MS08-032 (KB950760) on Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003, Windows XP, and Microsoft Windows 2000
Target platforms: Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003, Windows XP, and Microsoft Windows 2000
No MSFT bulletin number is probably because the new kill bits are for non-Microsoft products (Aurigma Image Uploader + HP Instant Support).

edit: i'm not sure about yours, but sounds annoying to me that something changes his version and don't change his detection. this appears to be true with .net 3.5 sp1. if we keep that, those that already have .net 3.5 will see it also an already installed update, that isn't true, since there's an sp1 that they may not have yet. so, it's time to change that detection and i've saw a couple of options. at registry, we have this:
RegistryPath=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\v3.5
the version isn't he same, so, it will works. also, this may works too:
RegistryPath=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\v3.5
but i didn't tested this one. also, you may detect this update by .cat file too. msxpsdrv.cat is related to that and also mxdwdrv.dll, xpssvcs.dll , but just .reg detections shall suffice.
also, the new updates that ms bring to us are this ones:
kb890830 - 08/2008
all those critical
edit2: obsolete from this last wave: KB950759 (IE7) and KB950759 (IE6), KB950760

@Cristiano - I think you might have downloaded the .net 3.5 modules when I was first uploading them the other day. If you download them again, you should notice the SP1 tag that you aleady mentioned being used
@DesertJerry - Do I need to say anything? <wink> P.S WOW! You used a new smiley face! <another wink>
@James - I believe you are right about the Kill Bits article. I'm glade that Microsoft is now encouraging 3rd party's when they need to "Kill" a bad ActiveX.

Apart from the 11 bulletins (23 Office patches alone!), the killbit update and .NET 3.5 SP1 there's also a new version of WindowsUpdateAgent:
WindowsUpdateAgent version 7.2.6001.784. See KB946928 for file details and download links.
Also, for MS08-050, the new version of Windows Messenger (=18.104.22.1685) is if you have version 5.1 installed. If you still have version 4.7 installed, it's a regular security patch (=KB946648).
Version 5.1 can be installed on other platforms as well:
Also, KB936782 = MS07-047 = WMP 9/10/11 has been officially updated to detect on XP SP3 (as well as SP2).

.NET detection is quite a bit more complicated than that. For example:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\v3.5
rather than default:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\v3.5
.NET Framework 3.5 Deployment Guide for Application Developers (Microsoft)
.NET Framework 3.5 Deployment Guide for Administrators (Microsoft)
How .NET Framework 3.5 setup checks for its prerequisites behind the scenes (Aaron Stebner)
Start with the Aaron Stebner link, it should tell you more than you ever wanted to know...
Now you all know where I get my .NET information from!
Posted 14 August 2008 - 12:34 PM
by the way: you already readed something about that 9mb that .net 3.5 (any sp) tries to download if you are installing it online?
Posted 14 August 2008 - 02:14 PM
Scenarios where .NET Framework 3.5 setup tries to connect to the Internet and how to avoid them
In your case, .NET will be trying to download dotnetfx35langpack_x86pt-BR.exe. Read the link I have given. Under Case 2 - Installing the .NET Framework 3.5 on a non-English OS there are then links to other articles, which lead to the Microsoft download pages. For example:
Os Pacotes de Idiomas do Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 contêm textos traduzidos, como as mensagens de erro, para cada idioma.
Data de Publicação: 6/3/2008
Idioma: Português (Brasil)
Tamanho do Download: 8.1 MB - 32.5 MB
The easiest is probably to install the .NET 3.5 framework using the /lang:ENU option, then install the language pack. This is just one of the alternatives that Aaron Stebner explains.
Edit: corrected spelling

they just have updated the description, right? the md5 for WindowsMedia11-KB936782-x86-PTB.exe is still the same. date for enu too
@James: thanks. that /lang:ENU worked like a charm. i've added the transtation pack as well, but seems that the translation pack for sp1 isn't out yet. but what i'm complaining? the new build of wmp11 isn't translated yet

Yes, they only updated the "detection logic" so that it will (1) show as missing if not installed; and (2) will also install on SP3.
It is taking Microsoft a long time -- months and months -- to find all the updates which apply to XP-SP3 as well as SP2.
Posted 20 August 2008 - 07:08 PM
KB951072 has been upped to v2
KB951618 has been upped to v2
Also SyncToy v2 has been out a few days.
More to follow...

That's not really what I meant. I was saying two things:
1) version 2 will not install over the top of version 1;
2) the difference between version 2 and version 1 is that the time data for Iran is different.
