Ramblings of an old Doc
And lacking really good features

I don't know this from personal experience, but Martin Brinkmann tends to know what he's talking about, and he did the update...

You should read the article linked and, if possible, defer this update. He describes a method for W10 Home, as well, using the metered charge option.

Ok, I finally found a problem that caused me to have to reinstall Windowblinds on all my machines.

After the 1803 update, windowblinds would not skin the taskbar button preview popup that shows when you mouseover the button that has an open window.

 

All is well after reinstalling WB.

Make that WindowBlinds and Start10.

I just booted into Win 10 and there were a bunch of updates for 1709 but I didn't get an update for 1803. I wonder if they stopped the update because people were having problems with it. I hit the update button twice I guess I'll try again later.

Be nice if they would be kinda sorta transparent in what the hell is going on.  But hey, Microsoft...

Quoting DrJBHL,
While there's a good deal to that, I didn't know you and Satya Nardella were an item.



Ahahahaha.  

Bastard.

Some are that from birth. Me? A self made man.

 

As I was saying...more on 1803. How can they put out an update like that?

I'm still 1709, and they may have taken that pos off their servers. My advice ALMonty...don't push your luck.

All my 3 devices (1 desktop, a laptop and a tablet) auto-updated Windows 1803 updates, and everything is fine. After reading this kind of post on forums, i feel lucky!

I really hope i won't ever get to clean re-install on the tablet, drivers on chinese stuff are always hard to find !  /Crossfingers

They didn't pull the update because one of my machines is getting it right now. Wish me luck....

Still can't get the 1803 update. Yesterday I received a cumulative update for 1709 and today I got an Defender update. I have no idea what's going on.

I have no idea what's going on.

Just like Microsoft...

Had to go to Microsoft website and install the update from there. After it was done I got a boot loop at logon, did a restart got a black screen, signed out and now everything works...I hope.

Luck. 

I'd sure like to know why Win 10 works for some and not for others. I've had next to zero problems with it and my laptop is pushing four years old. Thissa weird.

Thanks for wishing me luck. I got the bad kind this time.
