Hi Robin,

I was just writing for a new thread, but you beat me to it
So here is what I have for this round of updates

I updated a Win 7 x64 system with 16 updates for November updates.
No problems, but the download was painfully slow - over 30 minutes for 117 MB that normally takes a minute or two.
I assume it was bad timing for me and the MS servers were overloaded...everything else works fine for download time...
I downloaded/applied ALL updates at the same time.
I ran the Cleanup utility and it deleted ~200 MB of unneeded previous updates after these updates.
No problems so far...

No - I didn't get an update for IE 11

i did, wonder why it did not ask you to put on ie 11?
I did the updates for office 2010 on one machine and when it rebooted, i had no internet and the computer was at a crawl. Office updates should not knock out the internet
So i rebooted to last known good configuration and everything is now fine
Something must have gotten hung up with the office updates
I do not throw on the updates all at once, I am still on that machine and doing the updates slowly in bunches of 2

I know many people have different opinions on how many updates to apply "at once", and that's fine.
From what I know, the default setting applies all important updates at the same time for folks I help that have a pre-built out-of-the-box PC.
Maybe I'm wrong, but that's what I see, and think that's what the "mass market" non-tech user gets for "Patch Tuesday" updates.
So, I test it this way to see if I run into any problems before someone else gets hit with "Auto-Update" problems and calls me...
It also saves me a lot of time updating my systems...If my first attempt applying all updates at once has issues, I can work on figuring out why.
I find it very rare that applying all updates at once has issues that can't be easily fixed...

Maybe they are rolling out IE 11 in waves, and that's why it's not offered to me yet?

all office updates wether it is 2010, 2007 or 2013 are asking for reboots
That is strange- this is the first time i have seen office updates ask for reboots
I am working on my 4 windows 7 computers now doing the updates
Also ie 11 is in there for all 4I have not done it for ie 11 as of yet
Again i like doing updates a few at a time because if something goes wrong I can better figure out which one caused the problem

Yes, it is in the list of updates for my machine.

8 updates plus 1 optional installed with no problems, including IE11.
Used Win Update Cleanup, removed 527MB junk.

I updated to IE11 yesterday and have had no problems. There's no visible change from IE10 except it does seem faster.

I had 15 updates and 1 MSE update this morning and ran it all at once. No problems there either.
