    I have a USB 2 device that won't work on my USB 3 ports, or the USB 2 hub on the USB 3 port. Luckily I also have a USB 2 port so all is well.

    I don't have Chrome but the straight shortcut method works on my Windows 8 box with Firefox. Maybe Chrome does not play well with others.

    2984976 is related to 2984972 and is not even recommended by MS.
    2984981 is also RDP, but for server 2008. No sign of it in patch watch.
    3001554 is non-security, ignore.

    If all it contains is the Operating Sytem, then no, leave it alone. If it contains your data and you save videos / audio then it's probably time to consider a new disk / splitting OS from data.
