Now I have no idea which update was failing and whether I should try again to instlall some or all of the updates. Any advice?
I ran into the same thing although I was nowhere as patient as you were. My computer recovered from the cold reboot without a problem.
Don't you normally leave updates to the weekend in order to pick up on any rogue ones?
Normally, I do but I had to do a restore from an image way back in May and didn't feel like trying to sort out this month's updates from all of June's and July's on top of all the program and other updates I had to do as well (it was late last night and I was tired and cranky) so I just quickly scanned through all of them to eliminate the ones on my Win 10 Related Hit List (also called the Specialized Highly Intensive Training list) and ran them all. I figured if any one of the new ones that I did download and install caused a problem, I could just restore again. Hopefully, things will be back to a semblance of normality next month.

It is. I had that one and a second one reappear despite having both of them hidden from earlier appearances; MS frequently trying to ram them down my throat is also aggravating (I better words to describe my feelings but Mama told me not to use them).

Microsoft really needs to back off with the "forcing it down our throats" style of providing updates , all they are doing is making it more likely people will say "NO" to Win 10.

Don't use trickery or force because your going to get bit in the end , maybe we should all install the updates they recommend to give MS the impression that we are all going to install Win 10 and then dump the entire lot and stay with our current operating systems.

I have too much Irish in me to give them the satisfaction. Unless they quit using eejits like Ballsmore and Nutella for CEOs, it's looking more and more like Win 7 and Office 2010 are going to be my last Microsoft products.

The risk to my current system is too great. I noted errors on the first batch of GWX updates. Besides, I'd be afraid I'd wake up some morning and my PC would boot to W10.

I waited a few days before installing new patches. Because every PC is different, I think it's a matter of days for a large number of users install the patches and to see if it is free of errors.

Hopefully when it is on sale Windows 10 they stop sending those(W10) patches :S

I doubt it. MS really, really wants to get everyone on Win10 for various reasons—total control a la Apple's walled garden, improved adoption figures (no matter how artificial), not having to support earlier OSes, etc.—and is willing to pull every underhanded trick it can (and has been).
