    I always thought that Updates were there to solve problems, not create them.
    I installed them with no problems.

    I dream of the day that MS provides problem free updates 100% of the time

    Presumably because us guinea pigs would have already installed them, found a problem, reported it and the update pulled before you got to install it. Windows Updates used to be reliable, but the last couple of years, not so much.

    One good reason to make the switch to Windows 10, those who remain insiders and the ones that come later, will be the guinea pigs. Then the updates will have been tested a bit more thoroughly.
