So an update that blocks all future updates will be fixed by a future update.

Hmm, anyone else see a possible problem here...?

I would venture to guess a separate KB that would be accessible through the MUC.

There's a thought. There won't be anymore updates for Vista to worry about.

I just gave up some time ago. I install what's offered and hope for the best. I'm tired of combing through all the notes and KBs. So far so good...

It may well be me but haven't we been receiving the monthly quality roll up and the security updates separately to date?

Isn't this the first time they've issued both together?

It just seems odd to me - I'm only going to install the security one.
