Windows 7 Professional x64
Individual update's checkbox is blank?

This happens pretty often to me... out of several "Important" updates available for download/install, one or two will have their checkboxes blank, so they are not selected for installation automatically. I can't detect a pattern of which ones are left blank.

It always worries me a little, wondering if that particular update was left blank for a reason. I'm running a customized version of Windows 7 64-bit, so maybe the customization has something to do with it, but I can't see how a tweak that was performed before I even installed the OS can have impact on which updates are defined as "automatic".

What does it mean for an update to have a blank checkbox in Wondows Update?

Thanks for any clues you can provide...
