Is there a way to programmatically configure automatic updates to only install critical updates. I already know about the policy inf file configuration allowed by secedit.exe however nothing speaks specifically about critical updates. Any help is appreciated.

Did you mean locally on the machine or for the Domain? WSUS should be able to cover this for your workstations if you have access to a domain controller..... – danbo Jan 18 '11 at 17:57
This per the local machine. – TheAnomaly Jan 18 '11 at 18:11

Those that are installed automatically are critical updates, the optional have to be done manually.
