    UNBELIEVABLE! 35 Important Updates Just Showed Up


    I know this is Patch Tuesday but 35. I am still working on a couple of issues resulting for some of the Optional Updates over the past couple of weeks. Looking forward to hearing how the install for these goes.

    I think I will wait a bit.

    What the heck, I have excellent backup tools and options. Installed all 35 without a hitch but I think I will wait a few days before I would call it a complete success. Had no file or component store corruptions prior so it will be interesting to see where I am in a few days.

    Good,went in fine for me. Oh, let me know about Metadata ones. Don't mess with optional ones if having issues.

    Funny you mention that. I installed all the optional updates on both my desktop and laptop and started seeing some issues after several days. I ended up imaging my desktop back to just prior to the big batch of optional updates around 4/21 to get clean again and when I checked for updates, the big batch was gone and only a few came up which I installed without any errors. My laptop which is about a year newer and came with 8.1 seemed to digest them all better. Some minor issues but handled with SFC/DISM tools. My desktop came with 8.0 and I have upgraded/updated along the way. In the future I will use much greater caution before installing optional updates.

    As said to many read support info, does not pertain to you, hold off on them. Yes, some have issues, some do not from optional. Reasons why they are called optional not important, most just install them without reading about them, cause they are there and from MS. But why did ones i did not install disappear is the mystery question.

    Perhaps because what was optional before was not optional now but included in the 29 you received now.

    For 30 years of more I have always installed all Windows supplied updates including optional without giving it any thought and never experienced problems like I have had recently but I think my recent experience has been exclusive to the optional updates. I will use a different approach in the future at least with any optional updates. The good old days are gone.
