    Noted - thanks. I've deferred updates but I'm surprised I don't see a nag screen to upgrade to 1607 if there are no more security updates?

    If it would nag you for something it would be to update to current build but you deferred updates so...
    I can't see a reason not to update though.

    Make a complete image backup using Macrium Reflect, then upgrade to latest Windows.

    I'll certainly do that. My main PC I'm about to upgrade was only updated to W10 from W8.1 on 10 June this year using the latest Windows 10 ISO at the time. I'm surprised I'm on v1511 since your chart shows the W10 version on 10 June would have been 1602 /1606?

    Windows ISO's are always a little behind, there never up to date with latest versions.

    Version 1607 Build 14393.576 runs perfectly fine

    The only issue I had was that ccleaner would no longer work on this version.

    I`m sure that`ll get fixed.
    I have v 1607 build 14393.576 with all updates and CCleaner v5.25.5902 runs without issues.

    Might do the upgrade one day if I am bored.
    I wish you pick and choose the options on Win10 when u install it
    I have no use for 3D or Cortina as a example
    My other system is still running 8.1 with no problems

    Thanks

    Hi, you don't need to use any of the apps, or Cortana, if you don't wish to. Simply ignore them. Don't even waste time uninstalling or disabling them.

    Use Classic Shell as a start menu (so much better than Win 10's), and use Win 10 as a conventional PC with no tiles, and desktop programs.

    As ever, use disk imaging routinely, and update before major upgrades.

    If you're using Win 10, it's simply best to keep up to date. MS is (very slowly) resolving some issues as it rolls out updates, although sometimes there has been a hiccup.

    And there's no need to upgrade to Win 10 if what you have meets your needs and is sufficiently secure.
