Windows 7: Are reviews of all new updates posted somethere?

Are reviews of all new updates posted somethere?

I'm new to the forum and know the answer to my question may well be somewhere in the posts; however, I've searched with all the search words/phrases I can think of w/o success. For the first time in my use of computers (starting with the TRS 80), I've decided to not accept automatic updates. I'd love to find a forum, thread, corner of a forum, where someone very knowledgeable posts their evaluation of each update. I'd want to read those reviews before I install. I'm perfectly willing to wait a reasonable amount of time before I install the update. I know the IT folks where I work often take a long time before installing updates, so they may be doing the same thing.

Is there such a thread on this forum? This site looks like it includes a lot of very capable, serious, Windows 7 people. If not here, is there another site that has information like that?

I'm reinstalling Win 7 pro 64 bit on a Dell M4800 precision workstation and have started over about 4 times after encountering various problems - some of which I now know, in retrospect, weren't as fatal as I thought (e.g. black screen of death - I started trying to install all 230 updates at once - kept whittling down the list till at times I was installing only 1 at a time. I've since seen on this site the black screen of death solution, that I wish I'd known about earlier).

When I started deciding to make my own decisions about installing updates I was appalled to learn about all the Windows 10 stuff that I can avoid by being careful which updates I install.

I'm really impressed by what I see here. I'm hoping to become a productive member of the community.

I don't know of such a thread but each month there are threads dedicated to new updates and issues found if any.

Examples:

Brink usually posts a summary.
