Windows 7 Updates for New laptop

I need to know about all of these updates I see for Windows 7..

I see 47 Important updates for Windows.
2 Optional updates

1. . Are there any I should not do ?

2. Is there an order I should downloaded and install them ?

3. I plan to do 3 or 4 at a time.. if I do these this way.. should I then reboot after the 3 or 4 are downloaded ?

Thanks for your help.

I recommend downloading and installing all of them. Download and install all "important" or "critical" updates and the optional ones are well, optional. There's no need to do them 3 or 4 at a time, you can just get them all at once, reboot, and be done with it. Hope this helps

You must have a Trial Office Suite on your computer...

I suggest you if you plan not using this Trial Software, to install only at the moment all the "Critical", "Important" and everything related to the System Windows 7, not the Office one. They 're named Microsoft Office, so you can't get wrong.

Yes when you buy a new PC they have alot of updating to do, so yea install all of them, by default it should install all of the important ones and leave out the optional ones. When I bought my laptop 2 months ago, it needed to install 33 updates, updating your PC keeps it safe.

Yes,
Install all updates. This will take some time but do it.

When you are finished and after rebooting, then
Go back to Windows Update and although you may have an indication there that you are uptodate, click on that Update button.

Let those updates install and reboot.

Keep repeating this checking for updates until the update procedure truly comes up empty-handed.
