    This update includes files and resources that address issues that affect the update processes in Windows 10 that may prevent important Windows updates from being installed. These improvements help make sure that updates are installed seamlessly on your device, and they help improve the reliability and security of devices that are running Windows 10.

    Notes about this update

    • This update may request your device to stay awake longer to enable installation of updates.

      Note The installation will respect any user-configured sleep configurations and also your "active hours" when you use your device the most.
    • This update may try to reset network settings if problems are detected, and it will clean up registry keys that may be preventing updates from being installed successfully.
    • This update may repair disabled or corrupted Windows operating system components that determine the applicability of updates to your version of Windows 10.
    • This update may compress files in your user profile directory to help free up enough disk space to install important updates.
    • This update may reset the Windows Update database to repair the problems that could prevent updates from installing successfully. Therefore, you may see that your Windows Update history was cleared.

    Important information about devices that have low disk space

    When a Windows feature update is available for your device, you may see a message on the Windows Update settings page or elsewhere that asks you to free up disk space by removing files or applications that you do not use regularly. If you see this message, select Fix issues to free up disk space on your device.

    After the Windows update has installed, some users may be prompted to restart their device. See Free up drive space in Windows 10 for more information about other ways that you can free up disk space on your device.

    Compressing files

    To help free up disk space, this update may compress files in your user profile directory so that Windows Update can install important updates. When files or folders are compressed, they appear as having two blue arrows overlaid on the icon. Depending on your File Explorer settings, you may see icons that look larger or smaller. The following screen shot shows an example of these icons.

    After you install the update, your files are restored to their original state, and the blue arrows disappear from the file icons in File Explorer. At any point during the update process, you should be able to access your files.

    Microsoft Support notification

    This update may display a notification on devices that are running low on space. If selected, this notification will open a Microsoft Support URL in the default browser with contact options for Microsoft support so you can easily get help freeing up space on your device.

    Disk Cleanup

    When this update is installed, new options for cleaning up disk space will be available to make it easier for you to update your device when it is low on disk space. If a feature update fails due to a low disk space, you can help increase storage space by using the Disk Cleanup tool or selecting “Free up space now” in Settings / Storage. These will help you remove unused files and free up storage space before a major feature update.

    WU installed this last night - no problems here - just odd that it came on the heels of the monthly CU-KB4467702 - so far so good - that takes me to Win10 Home 1803 Build 17134.407

    No, not yet - I checked updates again this morning and there was nothing other than a Defender update. I'm hoping it will be awhile before I have to tread the dangerous waters to 1809. What I have now is working perfectly - wish they'd leave me alone. :)

    My life with KB4023057: Nothing notable has really happened. A Netflix update from the store failed at first but installed on the second go-around (I don't use Netflix on this computer). CompatTelRunner showed up in ReportingEvents for the first time since September and had the same "8 updates, actually, no 0 updates" result as the last times it showed up. I'm sure the Orchestrator will just find another Defender update when it shows up later this afternoon.

    It's difficult to predict. But no blue box popping up to download updates. No random desktop shortcuts.

    I suspect there'd be more random people complaining on the internet if they were pushing 1809 out like they did with other feature updates.

    They wouldn't, so you have to take action: Stop Windows 10 Updates Properly and Completely Solved - Windows 10 Forums

    I suspect KB4023057, if installed, will force auto-updates sooner or later.

    Got it earlier, scared the crap out of me in the process. Had to go scurrying for info on the related background program that suddenly showed up.

    For people that didn't immediately update to the newest feature update in the past (e.g people who stuck with 1703 when 1709 was first released, people who stuck with 1709 when 1803 was first released, etc), have you gotten this update before?

    I haven't received this one yet on 1803 since now I'm having WU to defer feature updates for 365 days and regular updates for 30 days but from what I've found online this update can cause some serious issues so I don't feel too good about this one when it inevitably arrives. And also apparently this update installs itself as an app/program that can constantly run in the background for whatever reason and can't be removed via any "official" method.
