    As is usual, the Windows 7 Games for Windows 10 and 8 are removed.
    Only the games that are installed locally are removed.

    Yes i know it is shown as a CU, i have installed that update yesterday through Windows update. Looking for the ISO of 1709. Thanks
    You have to use the MCT to update from CU to FCU. It is even stated on Microsoft's page for the ISO.

    I have a question and a statement. I have seen a lot of problems with "upgrading". Seems like most of the problems people are having is due to their "upgrading". I've been just doing a clean install when I've done my OS's. I'm still on the ann edition and have had no problems except for some problems with a few flash sites using IE. My question is, isn't always better to do a clean install to minimize any problems that are not OS bugs?

    Hi,
    Every large update creates a new 450mb system partition so people can roll back out of the update
    Some people might not know that and have mbr disks and not gpt.
    10 is like the worst partition garbage dumper I've ever seen

    No, not in my case. I started with OEM Win7, upgraded to 10240 when it was first released and upgraded to each new version since as it came out (by using the MCT to make install media on USB and upgrading using that). Now I'm on Fall Creators update with no problems. I have too much else installed to go through the pain of a clean install every six months. Besides, some of it was installed by the OEM so I have no media or keys to reinstall it.

    Seems like most of the problems people are having is due to their "upgrading".
    Seems to me that many of those having problems upgrading have tweaked their systems with third party tools and/or use third party AV or firewalls. I stick to Defender and don't tweak beyond what is available through settings or control panel (bar one or two very minor registry fixes). Perhaps that's why my upgrades are painless?

    Always used 3rd Party av here for years, always felt better system performance with 3rd party antivirus, Don't tweak that much though, just update Avast on each Windows 10 System monthly, and sometimes uninstall/reinstall to fix issues with it on those systems. Don't know if my Pro activation issue was related to Avast or not, or it somehow getting Home edition on the clean install, probably not



    Am Currently trying Defender on this Pro install, maybe will stick with it, but not sure yet, if I do then will have to probably change phone antivirus as if I see Avast on there, i'll be tempted to put Desktop to it I think as I always have been before

    As for Fall Creators running great now, in everything I do, so think all is good for the moment

    Hi,
    Just running the updates is almost like clean installing every reg edit has to be redone
    I have a stash of @Brink 's reg files on hand but it is getting old repeating every 3-4 months
    It should not have to be this way MS needs to start abiding to existing install settings..... dagnabit

    You just have to go back and reinstall them. It has been known since Anniversary that some items will get removed if not recognized as having proper signatures issued by Microsoft.

    My W10 Home laptop took until last week to upgrade to the CU via Windows Update and surprised me by updating to the FCU yesterday. The update went fine apart from the following irritations:


    • Had to set fonts sizes using the .reg files on this forum (useful)
    • Outlook 2010 reconfigured itself
    • Had to disable hibernation & fast start up
    • Had to turn off auto optimsation of system partitions
    • Some new errors e.g. Windows.MiracastView Error?

    Windows 10 Anniversary (v1607) will no longer receive security updates on or about March 2018. You shouldn't use it after that date. Support Ends "Tentatively March 2018"
    See: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...cle-fact-sheet

    I think you must send your feedback to Microsoft, nothing will be changed by posting it here )

    Anyway, Anniversary Update (1607) is still most stable build for now. If you wanna stability, stay on it.
