Shouldn't KB928388 be a critical update? Daylight Savings Time

    I was doing Microsoft updates on a machine where the user did not have auto
    updates installed. I generally try to take more than just the minimum, the
    critical updates. I noticed in the left column, Optional Software Updates,
    that Microsoft has KB928388. This patch lets the sytem clock roll over to
    the correct new Daylight Savings Time hour a month earlier than in the past,
    as will happen for the first time this year. Given that a lot of folks have
    apps running for which time might be critical, shouldn't that be a critical
    update and be pushed out to everyone. Or does it have to do with the fact
    that some parts of the country still don't do Daylight Savings time?

    I believe that you need to wait until this months security patches come out
    for it to go critical. There are numerous patches for MS products for the
    DST change. They have to be run in the correct order.

    If you are just a desktop/notepad user running XP then you probably only
    need to apply this patch.
