I'm on dialup so I have to grab all the offline installers at a friend's house and thumb-drive 'em over to my 'puter. So I just grabbed all the important post-SP1 updates and I installed the first one. Of COURSE it wants to restart. Now, I've been using Windows since W98, but I've never seen this question asked or answered; can I just install them all at once, opting out of the restart if I'm asked, and then restart once after I've installed them all? I've always kinda assumed I could, but there's always this nagging voice in the back of my head wondering if this might not be good practice. Another question, I used Windows Updates Installer (found in a thread at MSFN.org forum) to download all these updates. Is that a kosher application and source? Or should I be worried about security/malware with these updates?
