All are listed as important; none are critical.

curious.... last update check before i forced a check for updates was done at 13.22 MSE optional definition update the latest one came in as optional too (its now 2.30am) really hoping this is just some bug with their UK update dispensing server and it will be sorted.

Martin, I think MS has just gotten more specific about what they deem critical and optional. I have installed two of the latest with no ill effects. I will install another tomorrow.
