Windows 7: What order of Updates, and one at a time?

What order of Updates, and one at a time?

I have the following Important (including Recommended) Windows Updates and have a few questions before I start.

Yes, I know some of them are a bit old. I will probably not bother with the "Malicious Software Removal Tool" and would do SP1 last.

(a) should I do the Updates in any particular order?
(b) and, one at a time or several?
(c) are any likely to be problematic?
( d ) don't some of those .NET framework ones supersede others or does WU sort that out?
(e) will I get a load more appearing in the list after doing these?

Here is one opinion: Advice please on best way to install updates for Windows 7

I usually let Windows install whatever it has selected. Sometimes the WU process will get things out of order and that causes updates to fail. No big deal, those failing updates should install in subsequent attempts.

The two .NET updates that you highlighted patch different things.

The really important one here is the Service Pack 1 update - I'd install that one first
After that, just let Windows do its thing.

You don`t have Service Pack 1 installed ?

You need an installer with Service Pack 1 included, not critical, just saying.

Yes you will have more updates but not too many more.

The SP1 listed is 13.9MB, that's just that recent updated wrapper I believe.

OK, I may well do them a few at a time.

I do not understand - why do I need an Installer?

Offline updates spend enormous time "searching for updates on this..."
I do a lot of offline updating from my own store. Many of the updates prepare for installation by "searching for updates to this computer".

Installation order of list of updates
