Had loads on my W7 laptop last week and the week before. Almost every day, sometimes several times a day. Not sure what they all were but one 'Security Update' (same number) downloaded and supposedly installed about 5 times.

Not sure whether its the updates or the extra 2gb memory (recycled from my wife's dufunct Laptop) or a combination of both, but its absolutely 'flying' now.

I also had 5 on my Win XP desktop this week as well. Mostly to do with .Net 4.

Also on 8.1 but had 20 optional updates earlier this week. All installed, except kb3022345, which failed several times. Did a quick google and many others suffering the same fate.
