My machine shows 16 allegedly important updates and two optional ones this morning. I haven't sorted through them yet.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit SP1

My system shows 12 important updates. Will go through them later this week. Yesterday's WU error must have been server issues at MS's end. Probably problems or workload issues with replication.

Update: 12/09/15 I had a few spare minutes, so I opened up WU to read up on the 12 Important updates that were waiting for me to download and install. I've already hidden #2423. Much to my "surprise", IE11 stops working on all 12 of them. Guess I will wait until this weekend to do any more on this set. Good Luck everyone.

Update 2: 12/10/15 I can now bring up the update information with IE11. This is the same scenario that occurred last month after Patch Tuesday. Still waiting until this weekend to go through the update vetting and installation process.

I did the 12/08/15 updates this evening, but not 2423 it's hidden. No problems doing the updates, but once again, IE11 would crash if I tried to use it to view the update text on MS's site, even with the latest IE11 security update installed. Used FF to view the descriptions before doing the installs. I still find it hilarious that IE11 can't work with their own web pages.

Update: This series of updates generated a bunch of GWX registry entries and folders on the HDD. I don't know which update is responsible for them, but if one is interested, follow this thread:

June 2015 Patch Tuesday updates: What do they do?
OK, so after getting spooked by the "hidden agenda" of a series of recent 7 updates that apparently track your computing habits and install Windows 10 nagware, I uninstalled all the updates on my computer and have decided to start from scratch. I just got a notice about a series of updates...

Have these reared their head yet? Won't be home for a few hours but am wondering if it's a heavy one - do the updates seem safe? Cheers. Wayne

Are these out yet? Not sure what time they arrive UK time. Normally see them when I get home late evening from work. Given last month's debacle over the visio studio update causing widespread carnage I wonder if any nightmares await us. More of a russian roultette tuesday than a patch tuesday...
