Windows 7: April 14th 2015 Windows Updates Details

I wonder should i make a system image backup before proceeding with installing the updates or will a restore point suffice?

Its just that some people couldn't boot windows anymore after installing them, including my father. This makes me feel uneasy at best.

A system image would be better than a restore point. If the system won't boot after the updates, a restore point would be pretty much useless whereas a system image could be restored using a restore disk or USB stick. I highly recommend using Macrium Reflect Free (here is a good tutorial on how to use Macrium Reflect) over Windows imaging.

I ALWAYS make an image with Macrium before doing updates. I can go back to a fully functioning system in 15min.

Same here, I always make an image before installing any Windows updates. I use the Windows imaging tool though, it's never let me down. I know people have had issues with it because of the System Reserved partition being too small, but mine is set at 350mb as I also keep my Recovery files on there instead of the OS partition.

There was also another Update KB 3021952 which is for IE 11, but this update was shown in Installed Updates as being installed in Feb so I hid it as well.
KB3021952 should not be installed

Have these reared their head yet? Won't be home for a few hours but am wondering if it's a heavy one - do the updates seem safe? Cheers. Wayne
