    I have 28 on my Lenovo K450 Desktop so 22 sounds reasonable. Includes 3 Oracle VirtualBox drivers and one Brother printer drivers.

    IIRC, MS stated there would not be any CUs or FUs issued until after the holidays. I think it was stated this was due to personnel being away on vacations/holidays, so staffing would not support the updating process. I wasn't expecting WU to do anything until next Tuesday at the earliest. The next real "patch Tuesday" might not occur until February 5th, 2019.

    The easiest way to troubleshoot with ShellExView is to use the option to hide all Windows entries from the list. Then disable what's left and test to see if the delay is gone. If it is, great. Re-enable each entry one by one, testing each time, until you find the one causing the issue and leave that one disabled.

    Of course that only helps if it's a third-party extension causing the problem. Judging by how common this issue is it's probably a Windows component that's broken.

    What happens when you try to use the .reg? Do you get a warning of some sort? You would have to be running as Administrator to use it.

    You might want to wait for MS to fix it. For the time being, if there's something you use the 'New' menu for a lot, you might want to see if there's a keyboard shortcut or alternate method to achieve the same end.
    Do you mean the Registry editor? I do have to allow Admin privileges to use it. If .reg is what you mean, I don't know what you mean! LOL

    Thank you.
    I was sort of hoping that as 1809 is allegedly "out there" it might trickle through despite the holidays.
    My problem is I have a deadline of Jan 20th to either get 1809 installed and working on my travelling laptop which is Win 10 HOME, OR lock it down until April when I shall no longer be travelling and relying on slow WiFi with no other machines to assist.

    What's the general feeling about manually installing 1809? I understood the consensus was still to "wait for MS to push it"

    If I locked it down, i don't need any other MS updates - I use Norton F/W and A/V with MalwareBytes so MS can leave me alone for 3 months!

    You meant February 12, 2019. Patch Tuesday is on the second Tuesday of every month, I suppose the new year's eve celebration is still going on. LOL

    I have manually upgraded four quite different machines to 1809 with no issues. They range from an old Acer One netbook with an Intel Atom N2600, through the two systems in my specs, up to an i7 Dell Latitude.

    It is always 'safest' to wait in case there are any hardware-specific issues. But as long as you start off by making a Macrium image before you try the upgrade I would go for it...
