Repair Install and Windows Update

My Win8.1 pro setup is overgrown again and I would like to do a repair-install to clean out some of the crud -- but this time, I want to avoid doing the 200+ Windows Updates.

So, is there a way to do recent Cumulative Updates to accomplish the same without spending hours and hours doing hundreds of individual updates?

And if, so, which Cumulative Updates should I download and run?

Thanks in advance for any help on this ...

UPDATE: Since no one replied, I went ahead and did this anyway. I DID end up having to apply over 200 Windows Updates, so maybe there is no recent Cumulative Update that will prevent this.
