I am glad you managed to get things up to date at last!

Perhaps you could post the document with all the KB-numbers to avoid for people in the same situation and come across this post on their searches please?

I assume you installed ALL the Security only updates from October 2016 (KB3192391) to December 2017 (KB4054521) in order and ignored any the Cumulative Security Monthly updates?

Thanks in advance.

If the OP posts the list can you repost it using black letters ? I can't read her posts cause the purple color cause Bat headaches due to the brain damage

I agree that the colored letters are harder to read.

Just the list (if the OP posts it) will be fine. I'll like to compare it to the Simplix Pack and Abbodi's Repository on MDL

Thanks

Tanks :)
Nothing is impossible, the impossible just takes a little longer to complete.

of course I can post a KB-list. But I have to translate my document first as I have written it in Swedish.
I'm little busy today, but i can do that tomorrow. :)
And yes it's written up to Security update only KB4074587 even that I only installed my systems up to KB4054521 pending on if i find an answer for if spectre and meltdown is included in all patches after December.
