Applied 16 patches to my Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit PC. A reboot was needed. No problems so far.



P.S.>> My windows 8 Pro laptop update taking forever to download patches. Not sure why Win 7 worked fast as usual, but Win 8 Update taking forever just to download the patches.

The following patches did apply successfully to the Win 8 laptop:


The .net update did finally install thru Windows update.

Article says the server is busy for too many requests. Try it later, in particular KB2770917 took a little while to download for me, it's probably huge since it's W8 cumulative update.

Some of us have problem after last update. It looks like there is some problem after update when using OpenDNS on Windows 7.

I had to go to Windows Download Center to install KB2769165 & KB2770917(multiple files) patches. They were timing out using Windows Update pgm. After downloading and installing, I reset the Windows Update database and cleared it using Windows Update Troubleshooter. A subsequent run of Windows Update shows everything now up to date. Not thrilled with the Win patch tuesday process for Win8. See how it goes next month.

Update for User-Mode Driver Framework version 1.11 for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2685813)

It appears that they are related to the Microsoft Keyboard and Mouse software. If you are not having any issues with these devices then you probably do not need the updates.

I had two Win 7 Pro 64 bit systems that had just 12 updates, but this one had 16, and I believe they were the same as you listed. I think the difference is that the other systems did not have MS Office viewers installed.

Thanks. Nope, not having any issues. I think I'll hide these updates.

Only 17 for me on Win 7 x64, although a Windows Defender update the day before would have made 18.

Not sure about the optional ones on my servers. Not using IPV6 yet so may hold off and just take care of the criticals.

Ah, the thread seems to be related to both OpenDNS and IPv6. Don't have IPv6 enabled on the Win 7 network, so that is probably why I saw no problems there.
