      Hello,
      I am updating Windows 7 x64 with Security Only Updates. For now I updated with updates until June 2018.
      I have only the following updates in the Important tab – are they actually necessary to be installed and/or can they cause any problems?
      1) Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2506014) – causes restarts?
      2) Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB3138612) – possibility of Microsoft collecting information?
      3) Security Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB3139398) – I read about problems with USB devices?
      4) Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool x64 – July 2018 (KB890830) – if I have Kaspersky Internet Security and MBAM Premium does MSRT add any protection layer and would there be software conflict?

      Thank you in advance for response

      Thank you very much for this links. I have read many posts on AskWoody, but I still don’t know if mentioned by me issues with this updates: KB2506014 (causes restarts) and KB3139398 (problems with USB devices) were single issues or are more frequent – did somenone had this mentioned or other problems with these updates?

      And if I don’t see problems with Windows Update Agent (it is not slow in searching, downloading and installing), do I need KB3138612?

        When we were updating, month by month, these updates did cause issues. The fixes were included in later updates. Generally, the friends and family that paused at updating at December 2017 had success in installing all the updates through June, and then rebooting. Some thought they should reboot after each update, and tended to see the problems… which really only mattered to the ones that triggered BSOD…

        Full disclosure: I did update Group B fully to June 2018, but when installing a new hard drive, I chose to stay at December 2017.
