KB3038314 Causing issues with lists in IE

I am seeing issues with KB3038314 It seems it is causing more than just install failures, I'm seeing that KB3038314 is cuasing performance issues in ASP.Net lists/ General large lists IE 9.0 and 11.0 affected.

If we remove KB3038314 the issues go away.

Update: If your list code executes slowly it's time to inspect your code.

Microsoft Security Advisory 3062591

This is really simple and really cool.

Microsoft Security Advisory 3062591: "Microsoft is offering the Local Administrator Password Solution (LAPS) that provides a solution to the issue of using a common local account with an identical password on every computer in a domain. LAPS resolves this issue by setting a different, random password for the common local administrator account on every computer in the domain. Domain administrators using the solution can determine which users, such as helpdesk administrators, are authorized to read passwords.
Compromised identical local account credentials could allow elevation of privilege if an attacker uses them to elevate from a local user/administrator to a domain/enterprise administrator. Local administrator credentials are needed for occasions when logon is required without domain access. In large environments, password management can become complex, leading to poor security practices, and such environments greatly increase the risk of a Pass-the-Hash (PtH) credential replay attack.
LAPS simplifies password management while helping customers implement recommended defenses against cyberattacks. In particular, the solution mitigates the risk of lateral escalation that results when customers use the same administrative local account and password combination on their computers."
