I run report RECNOTE and got advice some notes need to install.

I'm worried about user's normal operation would be affected after note installation.for example, some operations was ok before,but fail after note installation.

I wonder to know how those, who face the same red rating about 'security notes' ,deal with it?

thanks in advance.
