It's hard to tell if that script (Maintenance.vbs) is a part of the update or malware. I would do 2 things to cover both possibilities.

#1. Create the file (with Notepad, be sure to save it as the correct filename). You'll need to put a single line into the file.
Wscript.Quit

#2. Download Malwarebytes (free edition) and do a full scan with it.
