One persons plan may not work for another, nothing against any of the suggested plans but planning is only thinking without action.

I totally agree with you Derek, last question, can history of installed updates be edited?

Failed updates cause no errors as to functioning, stability of OS, just history is full of failed........

Ok supposedly if I started with only 1 and that too KB3138962, it would have failed......since when did a 25 bunch it failed there......
I leave it and go back to it later, install what I could, however I could. when only failures are left, I'd work from that.

Okay when you said over thinking that is usually me

No harm in trying to install all again which should work in a normal world if it fails again :/
We'll go from there :)

I wouldn't worry about history, you can clear that with option one here later,

Windows Update - Reset

Yes the update history can be cleared easily.
And worked with
It's just a matter of how many fail 20 or less might be no big deal to deal with after.

That's all I'm saying, try whatever you want, if it doesn't work try something else, leave the failed ones if you have to, go back to them later.

After the first failures which were mostly net 3.5 stuff this is why I said install net 4.5.2 = what the hell at this point it seems to work best on a existing installs.
