Security Monthly Quality Rollup for Win 7 for X64

This "optional" entry appears each month during Win Update. It is several hundred MB in size so takes a while to download but there is no indication of what it does or why it is optional. Since individual updates also appear is this stuff really necessary ? Can it safely be ignored ? Thanx.

ps: it appears there is also a corresponding one for .NET

It downloaded for me - twice - during a recent update session, then told me it was not needed and so didn't install.

Thanx for the input. That explains why it is "optional" (vs. important) but not why it is there at all.
