Despite the 2 updates being offered simultaneously for those whose
Windows 7 systems are accessing Windows Update for the first time, I
strongly suggest installing KB974431 first, then do a reboot, and then
I ***more strongly suggest*** that the "stability and reliability"
updates NOT be installed if none of the symptoms listed in their KB
articles are present:
An update is available to improve the stability and reliability of
Windows 7 and of Windows Server 2008 R2

Microsoft pushes out these types of updates in response to the feedback

I'm not sure if that's turned on by Default by the OEMs or by MS as it's
not readily accessible unless one drills down to it in
Control Panel > Action Center > Change Action Center settings > Related
And, FWIW, from what I've seen in the past with such updates for Vista,
x64 systems have the most issues associated with these types of updates.
