Windows 7: Patch tuesday March 2015

Patch tuesday March 2015

Are these out yet? Not sure what time they arrive UK time. Normally see them when I get home late evening from work.

Given last month's debacle over the visio studio update causing widespread carnage I wonder if any nightmares await us. More of a russian roultette tuesday than a patch tuesday of late! It's frustrating they no longer give advance notifications anymore (on the preceeding thursday) so we have an idea how heavy the hit will be.

Updates usually come out at 1pm on the East Coast in the United States which is roughly about an hour from now as its 12:05pm actually 55 minutes to be exact

Took the plunge. Hell of a lot of updates. 25 I think. Anxiety levels in overdrive. I don't trust these updates! But I am happy to report they seem safe. No noticeable side effects in short term use afterwards

So far I've been offered 15 updates on my work-based computer, 12 for Windows and 3 for Office. None offered yet on my gaming computer.

As always these days, they will stay uninstalled while I follow the discussion here and also await the recommendations in Susan Bradley's Patch Watch at Windows Secrets. I'll also keep half an eye on the MS community forum. You can't be too careful these days, it only takes one rogue update to screw up your system totally. and Microsoft's reputation in this respect hasn't been too good lately.

I think the general consensus is good. I've googled around and see no horror stories. But I agree with your sentiment, the updates never end. All necessary I guess but it's so tiresome and stressful worrying if an 'update' will brick your expensive stuff. All I ever seem to do is update stuff these days. When you factor in all the other stuff like iPhones, NAS drives, Microsoft etc etc constantly pushing updates at you.

Why worry? I don't. Instead, I just wait until Saturday morning to download and install them. I have Windows updates set to just notify me when there are updates, then I download and install them when I'm ready to. By waiting until Saturday morning to download and install the updates, there is plenty of time to see reports about problematic updates. Usually, M$ pulls the problem children before Saturday and often issues a fixed version by Saturday.

Patch Tuesday
OK I downloaded and installed all 21 patches (took an age) but I still get the occasional "Windows Explorer has stopped working" message. I've run SFC /scannow several times and all seems well. Any ideas?
