Ok so

 

I have Windows 7, I love it, wont part from it whatsoever,. However lately when updates are ready to be installed I normally go important/critical updates, but sometimes there are updates in the optional section of Windows Update and all of these are "Preview of monthly security rollup for {month  name}" or "Preview of monthly quality rollup for {Month name]"

 

Are these required to be installed if they are just previews of what is in the critical/important updates area ? Or should i just hide them ?

This has been discussed before and, as you say, these are pre-views. The upshot of the earlier discussion was that you can safely ignore them. My understanding is that they are supplied for the benefit of enterprise type SysAdmins to allow them to check the updates before they install them on a company's worth of PCs.

microsoft fired their Q&A team (quality assurance) so basically if you download the preview you are basically doing the Q&A testing for Microsoft.
