INTERESTING. I was not offered Malicious Software Removal in my pack of 13 Updates which I installed yesterday. HOVEVER, upon turning on my computer today it now is offering that tool as a single Update, which I just installed. Again, without issue.

I've just installed most of the updates satisfactorily on one machine, including the reinstated MSRT update (which was offered again this morning after disappearing yesterday), but excluding a couple of W10 "marketing" updates - one of which was already hidden a month or two ago - as well as a couple recommended by Susan Bradley's Patch Watch to be held for now pending further advice. No problems thus far, and if all is well with this machine then I'll patch the other one tomorrow.

I just did the updates. Since I normally will not do more than 15 at a time and I had a total of 20 updates this go around, I did the ten Windows updates first and rebooted. Everything went fine until I typed in my password on the login screen; everything froze and the computer just sat there and laughed at me. I finally hit the reset button and did a normal boot. This time, the computer booted up just fine. I then downloaded and installed the ten Office 2010 updates and they installed ok with no reboot required. I checked for updates one more time, just for excrement and merriment, and there were no more.

Edit: I later updated a notebook that was three months behind. Since I update only 15 at a time, it took four sessions but I didn't have any trouble.

My dad did the updates auto and his pc became not bootable to windows. Just like two other people reported here. This makes me really scared of doing the windows updates but I know I will have to proceed with doing them at one point.

Create a System Backup Image before applying Patch Tuesday updates.
Restoring an Image has saved me a lot of time to fix a system when things get screwed up for whatever reason ...

I suggest using Macrium free for imaging, here is a tutorial by whs:

I've now installed most of the updates on my other machine, some left off as per my earlier post. KB3046482 failed, and the MSRT wasn't offered until afterwards. The MSRT then installed on its own ok, but took longer than usual - about 7 minutes - after which KB3046482 installed ok on its own.

I still have a couple of W10 "marketing" updates on hold, plus a couple that Patch Watch recommended holding for now on both machines as well as an Office update also recommended to be held on the only machine with Office installed on it.

It's proving to be an interesting month, one way and another.
