Install them all, unless you know of a specific issue with your computer's hardware configuration.
Microsoft wouldn't release a patch that just "causes problems" on all computers.

Make sure, you skip updates for any non-Microsoft devices (video, sound card, etc.)
Those are known for causing problems sometimes.

You should install ALL critical updates, as suggested.

You should install some optional updates...you should not use Windows Update as the source of any device drivers for your system hardware functions, as suggested.
