How they are checked is determined by how you have Win Update set.

If it were on "AUTO" it would just download and install them.

KB2492386- Download details: Update for Windows 7 (KB2492386)
Install this update to resolve a set of known application compatibility issues with Windows.

KB2506928- Download details: Update for Windows 7 (KB2506928)
Install this update to resolve issues in Windows.

KB2533552- An update that prevents a "0xC0000034" error message when you try to install Windows 7 SP1 or Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 is available

I have them installed but you will have to decide for your system.
