I tried out your suggestion on my wife's W7 x64 machine. After the checked by default updates were installed, I rebooted and then checked for updates again, and the same 2 updates were given, and they were both still unchecked...............Weird? I then installed them both without indecent.

On average my laptop and desktop took about 30-40 mins apiece. Though I also had to upgrade Flash, Shockwave, AIR, QuickTime (both laptop/desktop), and on the desktop new nVidia Update 280.26 (137MB). Spent at least 3-4 hours between both systems.

I installed all of them at once on my PC. Then rebooted normally. Everything was normal, but 1 minute after rebooting the system gets stuck. I can use any program I had opened in that 1 minute, but cannot minimize them, cannot click anything on task-bar, cannot open start menu, Ctrl+Alt+Del also didn't work. Couldn't even reboot normally, I used the reset button. Tried restarting several times, but it was always the same. I saved my date and now doing a system restore. I had never experienced anything like this before with Windows updates. I hope system restore succeeds.

Guys, system restore failed; indeed all these years I have never seen system restore restored a system successfully. It always fails miserably. The worst thing is that I feel more miserable than anything and totally desperate... My two years old OS finally died, I had a lot of work on it. I think I'm going to lie down a little and sleep for a while...

First suggestion. Fire up your PC and when it starts just leave it for an hour and see what happens. It could be just the .NET4 rebuild hogging your CPU.

It came out to be just as you said. I started the PC and left it alone for a while. After about 5 or 10 minutes it returned to normal. But that was really strange, it wasn't something throttling all CPU resources, all resource usage by all running applications was dropping down to zero at the same moment. Anyway the nightmare is over. Now that I experienced this, I learned that sometimes waiting is a solution.

Bitch Tuesday

I had some trouble with the updates on patch tuesday. First the mouse ware was locking then Office 2010 was all borked and when it tried to reconfigure went in to a loop. (kept rebooting) Mse disappered in to thin air.
I installed an image and started over and was successful in getting everything to work. Had to set security on intellitype exe to run in admin mode but it now works.
My question is, I have the two following optional updates left and I can't make a decision as to do I need them? Should I install them? I read the information at ms on them and I am still undecided. Any opinions?
Update for Microsoft .NET Framework 4 on Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2 for x64-based Systems (KB2468871)
Update for Microsoft .NET Framework 4 on Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2 for x64-based Systems (KB253352)
