Which updates should I install

Here is a list of "important" updates that I haven't installed yet. Are there any I should avoid installing?

Hi,
Double check your update settings and they might be sorted properly

Do note on the setting, as this is quite important.

Below the "Important updates" and on top of ThrashZone marking on the Red box.

"Install new update": Daily (use default)
at (Time) 3.00 AM


Do ensure that your computer is on at that period of time.
If not it would be useless.

Hi,
If you want recommended updates mixed up with important updates "which many people do not" you have to change your question too
Which recommended and important updates do I install because you're including both on your list.

Yes, but I'm not asking which ones are important. I want to know if the ones in the screenshot are ok to install and which one should I avoid installing.

Hi,
If you refuse to separate them properly just install all of them

Hi Nelson35

I agree to what ThrashZone mentioned.

Anyway, you can either check all or selective a few "updates" list, and do a check at MS kb articles.
You alone have to decide, as both of us cannot advice you on this matter.


For me, i use Recommended option.
Years ago, i use Select & Install myself, which did not serve my preference & need.

Each has it own preference.
This is your call.

Ugh I've got to go read all those articles? That's what I was hoping to avoid by posting here. Anyway thanks for the responses.
