This is why I hate Windows compared to OSX!

Turned on Surface Pro 4 this morning. Firewall pops up telling me it has blocked something called wuapihost.exe which appears to be a MS file. I did some Googling and I am far from the only person to have had the issue but no clear answer seems to exist from MS as to what it is.

Thoughts? Is it safe?

Apparently triggering the Windows firewall is a bug from what I've read on the net it's a part the windows update process so should be fine to let it through
