Sorry for the late response. Yes, definitely run this.
It sounds like you haven't updated in awhile though, so you may have a few "rounds" of updates. Bad updates might be in different rounds, so I'd run this before updating after every round and reboot completes before installing the next set. Also, for now keep optional updates on and install them, but turn off microsoft recommended updates. Optional updates actually seem to have a lot of bug fixes the last time I checked.
You could actually just run the script once, install everything I mentioned, then run it again after all updates are complete. That will remove the bad updates after they install, though it's best if you don't let them install in the first place.
It's up to you how you do it, but definitely do it one way or another. (I'm sorry it's not clear, we're working on figuring out the best way for every situation and making instructions).
Let me know if you need clarification and how it goes.
