Windows Update (7 SP1) manual order?

After reading several tutorials/posts, some dating from 2014, I'm confused about which updates and in which order I need to install so that my clean install of Windows 7 SP! will be up-to-date.
Should I start with: KB4490628 [.msu] => KB4490628 - Servicing stack update for Windows 7 SP1 - [12-Mar-2019],
KB4474419 [.msu] => KB4474419 SHA-2 code signing support update for Windows 7 SP1 - [10-Sep-2019],
KB4516655 [.msu] => KB4516655 [New] - Servicing stack update for Windows 7 SP1 - [10-Sep-2019]?

That is part of what I have posted for several members. Here is actually what I posted for members who are having problems installing the latest WU's. As you can see, I say "in the same order" . . .

I have put this together which has worked for a few members. The latest WU’s require that the following are installed FIRST . . .

KB4490628 [SSU]
KB4474419 [SHA-2]
KB4516655 [NEW SSU]

If any of the above WU’s are NOT installed, then download the .msu files below in the same order to the desktop and install them =>

KB4490628 => KB4490628 [SSU] - Servicing stack update for Windows 7 SP1 - [12-Mar-2019].
KB4474419 => KB4474419 [SHA-2] - Code signing support update for Windows 7 SP1 - [10-Sep-2019].
KB4516655 => KB4516655 [NEW SSU] - Servicing stack update for Windows 7 SP1 - [10-Sep-2019].

Now run WU's again!

I hope this helps!

[1] So you have just clean installed Win 7 SP1 Professional x64-bit, is that correct?
[2] Have you run Windows Updates?
[3] What stage of updating are you presently at?
[4] Have you seen the posts about updating the OS after a clean install using DISM++ or SIMPLIX?

I hope this helps!

Thanks Paul for the reply.
1. just did a clean install of Win 7 SP! Home Premium x64-bit. I have, but don't need?, Professional.
I have disabled all Windows Updates, but; KB947821 has been successfully installed.
I'm attempting to make a list, or use a automagic pgm, in order to install just the updates I need.
I read the posts about DISM++ but didn't really "get the drift".
BTW, I've re-installed Win 7 about 8 times and the last 2 I used a list that I found on this site. Can't file it now and the list was somewhat old. It started by installing the Oct.? 2014 "big" update and went from there. But installed nothing from 2017 onward. I think the list is too outdated.

Download and run simplix. It will reboot a couple of times and cleanup. You don't need to do anything, it is all taken care of.

I think you are referring to installing the KB3125574 [Convenience rollup update]. This is the old outdated method of getting quite a few updates installed in one package!

As SIW2 has mentioned, SIMPLIX is the quicker preferred method . . .

SIMPLIX - Running/Adding Updates Procedure

Download the latest SIMPLIX UpdatePack [for Win 7 SP1 x86-x64 / 2008 R2 SP1 x64] from here => SIMPLIX UpdatePack.

Run the UpdatePack => click Install.

It will update your OS automatically [it will re-boot a couple of times during the update process which is normal] and DOESN’T include any telemetry updates or processor checks [disables/patches detection of processor generation and hardware support when scanning or downloading updates through WU]. It installs the correct USB3 drivers and cleans up when it has finished. It requires NO user input.

I hope this helps!

OK,I'll just do it. Don't really like to "just-do-it" without understanding but I guess I'll have to.
Thanks. Can't now get through Google translation so I'll try later today to download simplix.

Thanks Paul. Guess I'll just bite-the-bullet and simply do as you and SIW2 suggest and see what happens.

Many members have successfully updated their OS's using SIMPLIX. You can run WU afterwards to see if there any other updates that you think will be beneficial to your OS.

I hope this helps!

Does #4 specify recommended/not recommended installs?

I would like to find out what security updates are ok to install after KB3172605.

I think I read somewhere that KB4054518 (2017-12 SU) was good with no nasties.


Is that true?

Is there a thread that better addresses avoiding M$ crap post KB3172605?
