    I had 16 in my Windows Update queue today; there were none yesterday.

    It took many iterations of Windows Update to get them all on, too. First there were 16, then 6, then 5, then 5 again, that is when I started selectively choosing which to install. Turns out the one that was causing all the problems was KB969897 (Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 8 for Windows Vista). It kept coming up with a black screen, then some DOS-like registry-looking bad graphics text lines, then a nice friendly message that said "Updates were not configured correctly. Reverting changes. Do not turn off your computer". After all the others were on, and after a couple more iterations of that reversion message, it finally went on successfully.
