    Download the following items and install in order:

    Download Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6.1 (Offline Installer) for Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2 from Official Microsoft Download Center

    Download October, 2016 Security Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows 7 (KB3185330) from Official Microsoft Download Center (32 bit)
    Download October, 2016 Security Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB3185330) from Official Microsoft Download Center (64 bit)

    Monthly updates for November and later are available at the Microsoft Update Catalog. A Google search for (month) Windows 7 Rollup will give you a direct link.


    NOTES:

    The first link is for IE 11 standalone installer. The second link is for .NET 4.61 standalone installer. The third link is for the updated Windows Update client.

    The 4th link is for the required servicing stack update, before installing this update and the rest of the updates (which are cumulative update rollup packages), you need to stop the Windows update service each time. To do this, go to All Programs, Accessories, and RIGHT click on Command Prompt. Select Run as administrator. Then type net stop wuauserv.

    The servicing stack update and the rollups are .msu files - when you download them, SAVE them, do not run them. Download everything and save them before running them as described.

    After you do all this, it shouldn't take too long to get the rest of the updates - there are probably about 50 of them to get instead of 200+. You will have to check for updates several times before you have them all. The rollups are through October 2016.

    When you first install Windows 7, answer "let me decide later" when it asks about Windows Update settings. After you get the standalone downloads installed, then go in and set it as desired. I use notify but let me decide whether to download and install.

    NOTE: If your Windows 7 media doesn't include SP1, you need to download and install that FIRST.

    Download Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (KB976932) from Official Microsoft Download Center

    windows6.1-KB976932-X86.exe - This application installs Sp1 to a 32-bit machine running Windows 7.
    windows6.1-KB976932-X64.exe - This application installs Sp1 to a 64-bit machine running Windows 7

    I'm going to copy this post and sticky it.

    Also, if the laptop is a 32 bit machine which it is, then no 64 bit updates should be downloaded, correct? (And they say there is no such thing as a dumb question?)

    Correct - if it's 32 bit Windows, you download the 32 bit updates and the updates that are not specified as being for one or the other. I just did a 32 bit install on a Dell Inspiron 1525 the other day using this procedure. My 32 bit Win 7 Home Premium already had SP1.

    Thanks for compiling this -- it makes the update process much quicker. I collected these updates on a flash drive and prefixed the names with 01 02 etc. so they appear in the required order without having to refer to this page. I created a batch file to run the "net stop wuauserv" command and inserted shortcuts to it with the appropriate numeric prefixes so that I know where to do this.

    yes i just did it yesterday. Only one update gave me issue (kb3172605) but it did do the trick.

    I still cant believe how slow windows gets installing all the updates. Fresh installed Win7-SP1 and the rig was pretty snappy. Installed all the updates and the December roll up and it became laggy.

    Worst was it takes forever and a day to shut down.... almost 5 minutes. To fresh install Win7 and all the linked updates plus the final updates via WU it took 10 hours.

    Got another question. :) After each KB update should I restart or can I run each one then restart. I'm referring to stopping the update service each time. If I install then all once the update service is stopped, won't it stay stopped until I restart. Is a restart recommended after each KB update?

    Yes, you need to restart each time.

    It took me about 3 hours of being in front of PC to do this. Sure I did it in segments but nowhere near 10 hours. Any thoughts? I also noticed sometimes the command "net stop wuauserv" was already stopped. Everything looks good and I reenabled updates for me to install later.

    Already see 23 to install. Are there any to be skipped here?

    Thinking of installing MSE and malwarebytes. Are there any preferences for free antivirus nowadays?

    Thanks.
