    KB 3068708 and updating Windows 8.1


    So I uninstalled the earlier version of update KB 3068708 because it set off false corruption flags and other than that, Windows 8.1 is up-to-date. I've decided I would like to update to Windows 10 and have reserved a copy without issue but should I now install this update despite the fact it sets off false flags because it's needed for Windows 10, or can I leave it and just update when my copy becomes available to download. I'm just worried about installing it, getting the update- and the flags staying invalid and being unable to uninstall it when I'm on Windows 10.

    Anyone's advice would be appreciated.

    Have now upgraded, no sign of trouble after installing updates prior to Windows 10 upgrade.
