November updates - any thoughts?

Yesterday (7 November) I got the Windows has updates notification for the monthly updates. Looked for a thread to see if anyone had any thoughts on whether there were any issues, before updating, but couldn't find one.

So are they all ok to install?

Actually - maybe it's not monthly updates. I just have one important one for visual C ++ 2005 SP1 (I uninstalled and reinstalled it recently after some errors). Plus two optional ones.

One optional one is Skype (took it off), the other is "October, 2016 Preview of monthly quality rollup for Windows 7 .... KB 3192403"

Whatever that is.

Good point! Create a system image first before all updates - will do that from now on - except just moved house and can't find any equipment lol.

The November updates don't come out till later today.

The preview update is just that, an unchecked optional update previewing the non-security updates for business IT departments to test before they are released formally the following month. Unless you want to beta test them, preview updates should be hidden.

Can't install updates since November
Just discovered that almost all my Win 7 automatic updates have failed since November. I get an 800706f7 (unknown error) message. The last successful one was Windows Defender 915597 on November 11. The next one -- Win7 x64 update KB3008627 -- failed, as did most other automatic updates. I did...

I really would like to know (bottom line) if these updates are too problematic at this time? I have read countless articles about failures and newly created problems after installing these updates. Would it be best to wait and find out what the underlying problems really are?
