I was wondering because I am going to install the following updates 14 in total that I received on this coming Friday..Has anybody ran into any issues with them, as of yet?

Also is there any that I should avoid, if any?

Appreciate it as always, you guys.

I am only installing "Important Updates" now. I received 12 and they all installed ok. Better still sfc /scannow didn't have a problem.

I really don't know if not installing "Recommended updates" will bite me down the track. According MS definitions of Important - Recommended - Optional I hope I'll be ok.

I installed them all, no issues with any of them.

mjf, as long as you have your WU settings correct and check the description of each and every update before you even think of installing it, you will be just fine.

AddRam, they are my update settings as well.

In my "Windows updates available", recommended and optional appear together. Recommended are highlighted when you select the update. I have ~10 recommended updates sitting in the "optional queue".
I'm sure there must be more I have dismissed yet only 10 appear. Do other recommended fall into a black hole after a while never to be recovered or are these the total outstanding recommended updates?

However they appear, always read the descriptions of what Microsoft considers Important, Recommended or Optional. You may not need any of them.

The only ones you should truly be concerned with are security updates, and they too must be analysed 1st.

I accept them outright if stated as important. I'm not prepared to "research" every important update.
If things go south I have a number of system images to revert to. I can go back 6 months+ if needed.
