    After installing the latest Windows Updates,
    I noticed that an unusual folder (named 051c7b034ddfc311bfb1da1e524d)
    was created on the Root directory of my Windows 8.1 x64.

    The respective folder contains many folders/files...
    (please, see my attachment)

    I guess these are associated with the
    Visual Studio 2010 Tools for Office Runtime
    update...

    1. Did you notice a similar issue?

    2. If yes, how did you deal with it?

    You can delete the files. See
    Update failure - KB3001652

    I deleted the files working outside of Windows. I used a WinPE boot USB drive with Paragon Hard Disk Manager, deleted the files with the "File Transfer Wizard".

    I deleted the "persistent" folder with the Boot-Repair-Disk.
    Any other Linux CD will do the job, I guess...

    Hiren's Boot CD
    , too.
