    How did you upgrade and where did you get your install media? It's not officially released yet, as far as I know? Just want to confirm you used a reputable source.

    Hi there

    can you open Windows (reboot) in SAFE MODE or "Repair system"

    That often works.

    Otherwise quickest way is to perform an Image restore (you DID take one before a major update didn't you !!!!).

    Free macrium etc make this job simple so there shouldn't be any reason for NOT having a backup.

    Cheers

    Tip noted, I will use this the next time I'm having trouble.

    Hi All,
    As jimbo stated "Free macrium etc make this job simple so there shouldn't be any reason for NOT having a backup." , that's saved me more than once ! I also have used a 'rescue disc', to get my system functioning properly once again...also a 'system disc' has helped me previously. ThatOthell, I know how you feel..it's rather frustrating when our system's act up on us, but at least for me..that's how we learn.

    Most of my work is done on Google Drive (Docs, Slides etc.) so backup never really come to mind, especially after my PC has worked year after year using Windows 10 while never having any issues even when it comes to updates EXCEPT this time.

    There are literally thousands of variables that would differ from your laptop to the desktop. It's impossible to test for every setup, which is why Microsoft is asking the community to do some of that testing and report back what doesn't work.

    That all being said, you quickly realize how embarrassing and ridiculous it is that Apple has so many issues with phone and OSX updates.
    Yup I know there are thousands of variables, but that is exactly what I found strange, how come it is so stable and so unstable on the other, when my lower-spec laptop had no issues.

    Checked for updates (Windows Update on local PC in settings) at approximately 7:00 PM PST and installed the updates at 11:00 PM PST.

    Edit: It fixed itself overnight!!! I didn't even touch it and even turned off the power source, wow.

    No idea how, I was right about to create a Windows installation USB too, good job Microsoft.

    How ? Spring Creators has not been released thru WU or official channels yet.
    Post your current Build after 'overnight fix'. Win+R winver
    Win10 SC Build would read either 17133.1 or 17133.73 (if 4/10 CU applied).

    Version 1803 is already available in ESD format hosted at official MS servers. You can create the ISO from the ESD. I updated to build 17133.1 in one of my laptops this way, and haven't had any issues so far but I'll do a backup anyway.

    I defer any major feature update for 6 months to let others iron out the faults created by dodgy MS software engineering.
