Well mine was interesting.

30 updates.

Installed and it asked to reboot.
shutdown was normal, if a bit slow.
Reboot got to 32%, sat there for 20 min then rebooted itself
Second reboot got to 32%, sat there for a few minutes then rebooted itself.
Third reboot went through the normal update process apparently OK.

I never do more than 10-15 updates at a time anymore. I start at the bottom of the list and work myself up. Also, if there is an unchecked update, I leave it unchecked until all the other updates are taken care of. I learned the hard way the danger of trying to run too many updates at once.

I must admit that I don't usually have that many updates. If the third reboot had failed I was going to restore an image from yesterday and redo the updates a few at a time.

I wonder why you start at the bottom of the list. I would start at the top in case there were any dependencies.

In the case of my notebook, I only dig it out to update it shortly before I go on a trip (the only time I normally use it) which means I often skip a month or few before it gets updated. Starting at the bottom ensures the oldest updates get installed first. It's become a habit for doing it all the time, even on my desktop.

It's been my experience that any updates in a monthly batch that need to run after another one has already run are the ones that are unchecked. That's why I run those last.

I never install updates the day I get notified of them (I have my updates set to notify me that they are available instead of automatically downloading and installing). I wait until Saturday morning to make sure there are no reports of problems and run them after I have run my security scans and local backups the night before (I run a cloud backup every night). I run the scans first, then the backups (the long ones run overnight), then the security updates. I reimage the boot drive after the updates are completed. That way, if I mess up the boot drive, I won't have to download and reinstall the updates again when I restore the drive but I also can restore to back before the updates incase one or more of the updates turn out to be troublesome (images take only 9 minutes to make so it's no big deal to make frequent system images).

The notification that I have updates available just came through (they normally don't show up until Wednesday morning). I have 26 important updates and one optional one I hid (Bing desktop, the same one I've been hiding for the past two months; M$ doesn't seem able to take a hint lately).

I thought I would add my 2 cents. I went ahead with the update. Downloaded rather fast, about 4 mins for 20~ updates, then rebooted. Took 2 reboots and now I am back and everything is working fine. I am doing the Microsoft Security Essentials update now, which wasn't checked in the original update package. So everything is up and running ok on my side.

That's interesting. I thought the multiple reboot was just me. First time I've seen it though.
