Always best to check. Especially these days.

You never know when one of those sneaky W10 updates might be 'accidentally' ticked to install by default.

Myself - I think I'll wait until the weekend to check out this month's updates.

With the proper settings that should not be a problem

If the tinfoil hat fits that also should not be a problem

Yes, & I would like to thank MS for turning patch Tuesday into a fun, fun time since I now have to check every single update to make sure somethings not getting into my OS that I don't want.

Yep, been having that problem with every Win ver myself, except for 10. That has no problem getting updates right away. Win 7 or 8, you might be waiting for a bit. For a while it looked like I was only having that prob with 7 64, but last time 8.1 64 took forever, as well as 7 32, which never had a problem in the past.

I myself always wait a day or 2 since that debacle with the faulty patches a few months back.

I have 6 or 8 computers here and some years ago set one up as a WHS2011 machine, primarily to run WSUS on it (Windows Server Update Services) but it does also allow my PCs to back themselves to it every day.

Anyway a somewhat unexpected benefit of having done this is that now I have for example the Windows 7 Product Classification of "Upgrades" turned OFF/unchecked so I do not even see all of the updates that are actually upGRADES. So I have many fewer Optional updates to check-over than most people, when I do occasionally see updates I don't want, such as recent KB2952664 or 31223862, I can DECLINE them once in WSUS and my client computers never have to deal with them.

I've also found it's nice to be able to compare the updates WHS2011 gets itself, since although it shares a lot with W7, MS is not intent to mess with it (ie. upgrade to W10), so if an update is offered for WHS2011 it must not be strictly related to the W10 campaign.

Your Tin Foil hat cracks are getting old, Nigel. Aren't people allowed to have their own opinions anymore?

My opinion is that a lot of nonsense is talked here by some about alleged spying of user data by Microsoft in Windows 10 and other Operating systems and that a tin foil hat is as likely to stop it as any other method

The so called spying "nonsense" isn't the only reason many people do not like and or want Win 10. Dislike of the cartoonish GUI, loss of Win 7 features, such as Windows Media Center (that one alone was enough for me), hardware and software incompatibility, forced updates that can brick a computer (and have done so in some cases), a dislike of being nagged to upgrade, especially in the underhanded way MS has been doing it, etc. are all legitimate reasons for not wanting Win 10.

None of those perceived issues is a valid reason to whine on incessantly - It would be much better if the minority of users with these irrational fears was a silent minority and just concentrated on helping users with issues with Windows 7 and not imagined problems with Windows 10
