We have taken some of the guidance to download the several individual update items as their standalone update installers, and run each one at a time and restart after each one. This is generally working, with a few frustrating odd effects during the shutdown-restarts; but working effectively. Still, very slow process getting each of the set of updates installed for the month.
CAN WE run maybe three or four or five installers one at a time, WITHOUT computer restarts in between, but do the restart AFTER the few standalone update installers have been run? Will this work? Will this hurt anything? Many of the individual shutdown-restarts just take a very long time.
