How to have Windows 7 Home automatically install optional updates

I use Microsoft Security Essentials and I have the Update Settings set to install Requiremended updates but it's not installing Optional updates for this application, how can I get it to install optional updates?

Are you saying that Microsoft Security Essentials is not updating ? How long has this been going on, the program usually updates itself every day and it can be several times a day.

So all the boxes are ticked as per the guide? Recommended & optional are two different things.
