Run Windows Update?
Well Golden; so far I have not encountered any issues; however; if when the next batch of updates comes down the pipe; I have a issue like some of the others have had where it wont install the updates; then I will probably have to go into the update history; find that specific update and uninstall it. But for now it seems all is good.
Issues or not, you should look in Installed Windows Updates, if KB3004394 is there use KB3024777 to remove it.
