Probably not an official listing, but some updates are potentially more problematic than others, KB971033 comes to mind.
Not everyone will have issues with Windows based updates.
The best way to avoid issues with updates is to have a good working drive images to fall back on, and keeping several stored
images created just after each major update is issued will allow you to fall back to a relatively recent image.
Drive imaging can also be used prior to large complex software installs as a means of a more thorough removal should the software prove to
be problematic. Having a decent up to date backup regimen is all in the creation timing.
The least problematic way to install multiple accumulated updates is from a clean OS with limited driver and no programs installed,
but even this is an extreme instance that is hardly needed anymore.
Only a small minority report update issues, and even then, it is more often than not related to a pre-existing corruption in the software environment
that may or may not be easily detectable.DRIVE IMAGING
Invest a little time and energy in a well thought out BACKUP regimen and you will have minimal down time, and headache.
