    I would not have installed updates that are not even released on WU to begin with. Should you uninstall them it is up to you.

    nah install updates and then do clean install after a month when they will start to release them on WU and grab them there :) at least this is my plan, but i was used to reformat every 2 weeks for every beta anyway...

    This is not even a bug. It's just a complete misunderstanding of a feature that was built in. The Chkdsk utility is designed to use all the AVAILABLE memory for its scanning, and will NOT cause the computer to crash.

    Try it out yourself.
    Chkdsk C: /r

    Well it's nearly 100% true what you have said, just some small corrections :
    - It was intended to use all memory (to speed up the chkdsk operation) except ~50MB which was designed to be left for other appz.
    - Some users were able to replicate crashes during chkdsk operation, but it was narrowed to faulty/outdated chipset drivers and not the OS bug, now confirmed by MS directly.
    - There are several unreleased (officially) patches floating around (on MDL too) that are told to fix the crashes, but I would advise to update the drivers first ;)
