Just noticed on this machine that there are 28 unchecked optional Windows Updates from April. Should I install these and why aren't they installed automatically with the important and recommended ones?

Thanks.

Optional updates doesn't install automatically because it is not important. You no need to install all optional updates, only install those that will benefit you.

So the updates on this image aren't necessary? Any idea what they do, why they're offered and if I should install them?

Thanks guys. I still use Vista actually (I'm writing on behalf of another whose PC I use now and then) and I've never seen Optional updates of these kind. To me they look like Recommended or Important ones.
