    Then to stop this cycle may be you want to set your wireless connection to Metered to stop updates. After that I would run trouble shooter on updates. My goal being to stop the repetitive trying of the failed update while you deal with heat.

    Good idea (if only I had thought of it).
    I managed to uninstall MySQL Visual Studio via GitHub Total Uninstall tool. Previously, uninstalling from within Visual Studio caused overheating and shut-down the pc again. Again, Windows 10 would not re-start, but removing mouse-dongle and selecting Option 7 from Start Up settings (Advanced Options) allowed Windows 10 to start. My laptop returned to normal (heat and noise-wise) following the un-installation.

    A suggestion from the MySQL forum, was that I may have had too little RAM available: I have 4GB RAM but 57% was in use "..by indivdual processes.." - I have 104 processes running, and have little idea how to thin these down.

    Have just installed the rogue KB, directly from Windows Update which took around 10 minutes.

    For the 104 process the first place to look is the Start Up tab in Task Manager. Approach cautiously but some things you will just know you don't need, like something starting a weather app or an old messaging service. Then look in the systray, are there any programs in that list that have seen better days and finally Control Panel and Programs. Everything gets installed but nothing exits.

    You can also download free, Autoruns, part of Sysinternals. This gives you real insight but also allows you to shut off something you actually need.

    That looks like great advice. Thank you. Will follow up.
    I've had to join a third Forum (MS Office) since I have lost Office 2016 and Office 2010, but the original "crashing" problem may be linked to having too many processes running.
