No problems about waiting - I have quite enough to keep me busy in the meantime!

A repair install usually takes around 1-3 hours - but can take longer - and then comes the laborious task of reinstalling updates.

As far as Update installation is concerned my normal method seems to work well...

1) Install all 'Security Update for Windows 7' - reboot and run a new Check for Updates
2) Install all 'Update for Windows 7', and any new/failed ones from step 1 - reboot and run a new Check for Updates
3) Install IE8 updates if offered, and any new/failed ones from steps 1/2 - reboot and run a new Check for Updates
4) Install IE9/10/11 as offered ensuring that you fully update each installed version before upgrading to the next offered one rebooting after each batch, installing any new/failed ones from steps 1/2/3 - reboot and run a new Check for Updates
5) Install .NET updates - first install all v3.5 updates, since these are part of Windows. Then install .NET 4.x and update it, and any new/failed ones from steps 1-4 - reboot and run a new Check for Updates rinse and repeat
6) Install any other remaining Important updates
7) install any of the optional updates you want.

It all started a week or 2 ago, when Windows Update said there were maybe 2 updates ready, plus the standard malicious software removal update. I think one of them may have been a patch for Windows 7 SP1 (or maybe it WAS SP1). Everything seemed to go normally. There was no restart prompt. ...
