Windows 10 Fall update

Hi all, Has anyone else updated today and how have you got on with this major update?

All seems well here and running very smooth indeed.  ;D

I've not noticed any difference, but I did have a huge update over the weekend, which resulted in an hour long reboot.   ::)

It only came out on Tuesday so yours sounds as if its the pre release that came out a couple of weeks ago. Just check the system file to see if you have been updated if you see version 1709 then you are there.  ;)

As long as it works, to be honest, I don't really care, Den.  I'd just quite like it if Windows 10 would occasionally give me some time on my own computer to do what I want to do, without it being slowed down by constant bloody updates.   >:(

Microsoft could turn into Apple and make your computer obsolete when they announce an update. :devil:

You have to install 1703 before they let you move on to 1709. Try again it should be there by now (or perhaps mid/west Wales is out of bounds).  :D

Just for you Clive, don't tell Simon.  ;)
