Tips for a great answer:
This November update rollup also includes all previous updates since the previous image update in April 2014. This is a convenient single step to bring Windows clients and servers up to date. Unlike our April update, the November update rollup is not required to be able to continue to receive security or other updates. However, we strongly recommend that you deploy it to Windows clients and servers to benefit from these new features and improvements as well as to prevent many known issues that have been resolved since April. This update is thoroughly tested to the same quality level as our previous service packs. I count more than 60 patches in the November rollup. When released, it immediately bricked computers running Avast antivirus, and other problems appeared. Avast fixed the problem with its update 141125-1, issued near the end of November.
I can't find any reference to the change from "optional" to "important," but it appears there was no change in the patch itself to warrant the new status. At least, the official Windows Update changelog doesn't mention any change in the patch this year. The KB article doesn't mention any changes, either, although it was updated on March 2, with no explanation given. It's now up to version 11.0.
My take: If you haven't installed it, don't install it yet. There's nothing pressing in the rollup -- no threat to withhold future updates, for example.
Instead, wait for this month's Patch Tuesday release on March 10. At this point, more than 20 separate nonsecurity patches are waiting to be rolled out the Automatic Update chute. Let's see what happens when the smoke clears toward the end of this month and see if any more KB 3000850-specific complaints emerge.

If your DVD installation disk is prior to Sp1, and you have SP1 installed on your computer, you will need to uninstall SP1 to complete the in-place upgrade and then reinstall the necessary windows updates .
If you would like to perform the In-place Upgrade, let's refer to the following steps.
1. Start the computer by using the current Operating System.
2. Insert the Windows Vista DVD in the computer's DVD drive.
3. Use one of the following procedures, as appropriate:
• If Windows automatically detects the DVD, the Install now screen appears. Click Install now.
• If Windows does not automatically detect the DVD, follow these steps:
a. Click Start, click Run, type Drive:\setup.exe, and then click OK.
Note Drive is the drive letter of the computer's DVD drive.
b. Click Install now.
4. When you reach the "Which type of installation do you want?" screen, click Upgrade to upgrade the current operating system to Windows Vista.
Please run Windows Update again as you will need to download and install the most current updates.
If you do not have the Windows Vista Installation DVD, I suggest contacting your PC manufacturer to order a backup disk.
Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.
