Question Windows 7 Updates unchecked

Why do some IMPORTANT updates come unchecked (and therefore won't be installed unless you check them) during a regular Windows Update in W7?

Not "tested enough to be installed automatically"?

my guess is that certain updates are unchecked because other important updates need to be installed first

After all checked updates are installed, unchecked updates are still in the unchecked state and alone in the Windows Update window.

Re: Windows 7 Updates unchecked

yes, very suspicious. Maybe it means that there are dependencies and impacts that need to be understood before installation, or it could be lazy release management practices...

Re: Windows 7 Updates unchecked

I was wondering this same thing, as I saw it in the last batch of updates on multiple PCs.

Re: Windows 7 Updates unchecked

After a first run of only the checked updates some are still unchecked.. and Im not sure actually if it installed a 1st batch of unchecked updates or not, I'll have a look in the history

Ok quick edit.. silly me right because it doesn't actually install things you leave unchecked
