Windows 7: How Does One Deal With 163 New Updates?

How Does One Deal With 163 New Updates?

So I had reinstalled windows for the first time and I have never had to deal with so many new updates at once. I have 163 new important updates and 6 optional updates.

Is it safe to just go and install all 163 important updates at once or is there a special way to install them properly? Are there certain updates I should be avoiding? What about the updates for windows 7 that are optional?

Can someone explain to me what I'm suppose to do with all these updates?

Personally i would install all the Important updates first, then go through the optional and choose which ones i think are important.

So before I go do it. You are saying it should be safe to install all 163 important updates all at once?

I've gotten burned trying to do very many updates at once. I now do no more than 15 updates at a time. Some updates have to be done before some others can be done, I start with the oldest updates and work my way up the list. 'Tis tedious but 'tis safer.

LF is right. There is a smaller risk if you run them in smaller batches. If something happens, it is easier to reset to the restore point and try to figure out what the peoblem is.

In my defence though, every time i do a bunch of updates a system restore point is created.
