Noel, hard to think of not doing anything on the computer until 30 minutes after an update.

There's only two things I definitely avoid doing if possible during that period -
1) Shutdown/restart/reboot
2) System maintenance tasks (CHKDSK/SFC/Defrag/etc)

Otherwise, I just tend to get on with what I'm doing, and accept the temporary slowdown that occurs.

Oh boy, I install, reboot, then another program (usually an Adobe) has an update, I do that on,e reboot, etc.

What bad things could happen?

To be honest, I don't know
It seems to me to make sense to allow one set of updates to totally complete before attempting the next.
In theory, Windows will suspend whatever it's doing gracefully - but there are any number of external factors that could make it stumble.

Okay, the problem is, of course, to know exactly when Windows have finished its update process.

Which may blink for a ton of reasons ... not only update-related. And it is very difficult to interpret the processes going on in Task Manager. Generic processes that may indicate a lot of different things.

Generally, anything to do with TrustedInstaller is WU-related. There are a couple of .NET optimisation processes that tend to continue for quite a while as well.

So, TrustedInstaller under Services is what I should look at, until it goes from "Running" to "Stopped"?

What should I look for when it comes to .NET? Processes something or Services something?

No - always look in the Processes list.
TrustedInstaller service runs most of the time anyhow.
If I remember right, the .NET routines are something like 'clr NET optimisation'
