Microsoft's Fix-It Button - Safe or Risky?

Apparently, Microsoft has started introducing a 'Fix it' button to some of their help documents.

Instead of you taking all possible steps to fix a PC problem, you can click the fix-it button and a script will automatically go through such steps for you.

I think running a script from a trusted Microsoft site should be safe enough. However, there's always a slight risk that Microsoft will unknowingly serve you malware!

What do you think - is it risky or safe to press that fix-it button?
