Here are the following updates that I installed (no .NET Framework updates were released this month AFAIK, so no .NET Framework related updates were installed):

KB4041671
KB4041944
KB4041995
KB4042007

BTW, does anyone want me to include a folder in the repository with the Windows Update speedup patches, as mentioned in @2008WindowsVista's video on the subject? I think it would help whoever is trying to fresh install Vista in 2017 and beyond (all 0 people, lol)

Wouldn't hurt doing so i guess , I might also do a fresh install in upcoming months(did 10 fresh installations this year lol) so it would help for few people, its your call if you want to or not. :)

Yes, please! I seem to be regularly  installing Vista in various VirtualBox and VMWare machines. The update process on a VM is slightly more interminable than non-virtualised, so anything that can hasten the process early on is invaluable. :(

And BTW, many thanks for maintaining this repository on Mega!

So if one installs Vista fresh, will updates actually work without any patching, or just slowly?

Individual updates install just fine. The problem occurs when running Windows Update. It takes forever to find updates, unless you install the latest IE cumulative update and a few other updates...

I'm going to hold off installing these for at least a couple of weeks, just to let the dust settle, and see if any negative reports pop-up online.
