Watch the, now edited, "colorful" language, please. Thank you.
Hello. I heard Windows 10 Updates are <<Edited by moderator>>. They freak everything.

Should I keep em on? Should I update my windows?

This is not unique to Win 10, or to this latest Win 10 Update.
Every OS update or new version, across ALL operating systems, has "issues".

Every. Single. One. Ever.

This current Win 10 2004 is no more problematic than any other, less than most. Mostly, some small subset of users and systems.

Yes, update your OS, and keep it updated.
