How do I approve certain security patches and deploy those approved patches to a machine group in Shavlik Protect 9?

We are a Windows shop. We want to try Shavlik only for Servers (2003 & 2008), and desktops. When doing a scan, there are so many patches found missing. In looking at them, how do i know which one to approve to deploy to a targeted server machine group? We are concern about only security patches. Should I approve patches only listed as critical or important? Is there a guideline I can go by to pick out from?

You should regularly apply ALL Criticial Updates from Microsoft at least, and then you should review the Notes for Important Updates.

There must be a setting for Shavlik Protect 9 to only download specific types of updates. For example in Vmware Update manager, you can select to download only high or critical updates.
