    Would you believe that this is my 5th day of almost solid 6-8 hours trying to figure out what to go ahead with & what to keep hidden from the last 2 or more months updates.

    Edit: And now my total for Oct. is 22!!

    I did not do the ones for ie 10 and 11 because i am sticking with ie 9
    I did all the kernal ones one one computer and prayed. It took a bit to install but it did. I am not sure if i am going to put them on my business computer yet, are 4 of them and i cannot understand why you need 4 kernal drive updates when it says it is for the exact same thing, anyone wanna explain why?

    How we all look forward to this time of the month!

    I installed about 20 updates on my gaming machine this morning, leaving just the MSE update to do separately when I'm satisfied that everything else is ok. So far so good. The updates included KB2862330 and I only had the usual single reboot, installing the lot in one go inside about 10 minutes.

    This afternoon I applied the same updates to my work machine, but minus KB2862330 as this one was now unchecked by MS, presumably because it is causing double reboots on some machines and that can play havoc with the rest of the updates. I'll leave that one at least for now. I then separately installed the six Office updates, but have again left the MSE update for later.

    On the work machine I've also left the Silverlight update for now as I didn't want to compromise the other updates, and I'm none too clear whether I need it. Does anyone have any strong views on that one, for or against?

    Silverlight is basically the MS version of Java. Thus far I've only encountered a few MS site which say I need it to view the page properly. I leave it both uninstalled.

    I've had Silverlight installed on previous machines and never had a problem with it. I don't have it installed on wither of machines now because, until recently, I never needed it. The one time I went to a web site that needed it, I blew off the site.

    I just spent the last hour fixing my windows 7 64 bit after installing these updates it went like this 1 could not boot into the drive 2 could not repair start up with recovery after several attempts 3 disconnected all external devices apart from mouse and keyboard still could not repair it. so after about 10 times of turning off/on pc it booted up and took 30 mins to get to the desktop can't believe it.
    That's why Patch Tuesday scares the h*** out of me. I don't know diddlysquat about what to do if I were to have a problem like that. That's why I'm such a PIA at this forum.
    You think it's bad for Windows? Linux users usually get updates DAILY and they have a tendency to break things OFTEN lol. Talk about being paranoid

    So, I gather that most people have installed all Oct. updates with no problems? It's been a week today & I'm still holding. As I said in earlier post, "wouldn't know what to do".

    Was doing reading elsewhere & sounds like lots of problems with all or most of the Kernel & USB Drivers, that's why I always come back to this forum, my favorite.

    I've installed all of them on 3 machines, the first two I did 6-7 at a time, rebooting before the next round. the last one I did all of them, 17 in this case, with no issues.

    I had to hide the Silverlight installation every time, MS must really believe we need it.

    I still haven't installed KB2862330 on my second machine. I installed it ok on my first one, but by the time I did my second machine updates a couple of days later it had been unchecked by MS so I left it. It's still unchecked so I'll probably hide it as it looks like it's caused a few problems. Everything else went ok, including the Office updates on my second machine.

    I think I was only prompted to install the Silverlight update on one of the machines, and hid it.

    I had no trouble with KB2862330 on both of my machines. Anything M$ leaves unchecked I leave until everything else has been installed, then install the unchecked ones.

    You shouldn't receive Silverlight updates unless you have it installed (I don't—haven't needed it—and I don't get the updates). If you have Silverlight installed (and you probably do if you are receiving the updates), you should also install the updates to avoid potential security problems.
