Usually, M$ pulls the problem children before Saturday and often issues a fixed version by Saturday.
Windows updates and Saturday morning cartoons go well together.

LOL! You aren't too far off. I usually run them while watching This Old Mansion House, which is almost a cartoon anymore.

When I launch Windows Update, I click on "More information" for each item in the list (I have 14 updates) and download and save them for the future. After I save them all, I make a Macrium Reflect boot drive image, and then go back and run Windows Update and let it do its thing.

Each and every link in Windows Update opens a browser page where it says "Oops! The page you are looking for may have a new location, or is no longer available.", so I have to Google each and every update individually for download. When I find the appropriate download page, I have to click the link after it says, "If your download does not start within 30 seconds, click here". New, unwelcome, and very annoying behavior.

Both of those updates were successful on my computer & both are shown as installed successfully.

131 did not install on mine. I now find out that if you install 131 first and then 929 they both will install. If you install 929 first only 929 will install, which is what happened to me.

My method and it worked well so far.

1. Downloaded and install all offered Updates.
2. Rebooted twice
3. Run Windows Disk Clean Up Extended.
4. Rebooted
5. Checked Windows 7 Updates again and found some more needed updates and installed them.
6. Rebooted although not requested and things are still working as they should as far as I can tell.

I've now been offered 12 updates on my gaming machine as well as 12 Windows updates and 3 Office updates on my work-based machine (it's the only one with Office installed). What seems very strange this month is that while OvenMaster says he has 14 updates, others are reporting between 25 and 34 updates which is an extraordinary number. I'm still watching and waiting.
