    I still have 13 updates in my automatic update, like everybody else, mostly from last Tuesday. What should I do with them?

    Thanks,

    I've installed them on a number of XP machines without any problems.

    If you are reading Susan Bradley's excellent Patch Watch column in Windows Secrets, you will receive solid, credible advice on whether, or not, to install individual Windows updates. I've implemented her recommendations every time and have never been disappointed.

    install all security updates EXCEPT for KB977165. That one may cause BSODs problems on infected XP systems. Check your XP machines if they are clean, then decide whether or not to install the KB977165 patch.
