Install Service Pack 6, and then May-2012 (KB-957924) Update. Thats all. May-2012 update replaces the May-2009 and Oct-2009 Update.

Updates NOT to Install
Never install the Dec-2008 (KB 957924-v1) Cumulative Update, it is very buggy according to Make My Manifest blog.

  1. You state:

    Which Updates To Install?
    Install Service Pack 6, and then May-2009 (KB-957924) Update.

    and then

    Updates NOT to Install
    Never install the Dec-2008 (KB 957924)

    Bit of a contradiction there?
