It's pretty bad as I have a cache SSD which doesn't take kindly to unclean forced shutdowns. Messes up the cache map - worst time to happen too in the middle of updates!!!
Yup, I installed all 21 without any problems, computer is running just fine afterwards as well.

I have my M$ updater set to only notify me that updates are available, then wait until Saturday morning to download and install them. That way, there is plenty of time for dodgy updates to be reported. Usually, M$ pulls any dodgy ones before Saturday morning.

Looks like this poisonous visual studio update has been pulled perhaps. I got lucky, forced shutdown and cache map restored. The 6 uodated installed and I dvebtually got back in ok to install the other ones but the kb3001652 was missing from the list. It didn't show under my installed updates either. Why do Microsoft mot test these things properly. Googling about and looks like it's wreaked havoc. Patch Tuesday is fast become a very stressful thing!!!

I have always installed the updates when they come out as I have multiple machines running multiple OS so I can recover. I di a forced reboot on my Windows 7 machines and unchecked the update and installed everything else. This Toshiba Laptop is still offering me the update.....hahah One of my Windows 8 OS is STUCK on installing that one update. I shall intervene shortly. On one machine the update actually installed correctly and brought up a standalone installer which I had to click next, OK and exit. So maybe that is the issue.
How on earth they think they can get Windows 10 ready in June with these continually hosed updates I do not know. Depends on the definition of ready.....
So far out of 5 machines it installed correctly a total of once. Do they even test these updates?

So far on the 10 machines I have in my office, it's installed flawlessly on all 10, no issues. Hope the rest of you get through it all! Remember, don't panic, don't stress, just step back, breath, and get back to it!

I also wait these days for the Patch Watch advice on Windows Secrets from Susan Bradley, a MS MVP who also posts here occasionally. It costs a mere $12 per year for the service and, along with using this site, is the best way I've found of getting good advice on updates and other related stuff.

I'm sure they do. Keep in mind there are thousands, if not tens or hudreds of thousands, possible combinations of hardware and software out there and there is no way M$ can test for all of them. I feel M$ does a remarkable job of avoiding problems with updates, considering how may possible senarios they have to allow for, even though they have had more than the normal amount of problems the past year.
