    I would advise anyone who is a serious windows user to sign up for the insider program, If you have a spare system and time sign up for the Fast or Slow ring and help shape the next update. If not sign up for the release preview - getting an update a few days earlier than the others makes things a lot calmer

    I don't have a camera or microphone so I've never installed Skype. After a few minutes working with the new OS this morning I received a blue side panel pop-in note that mentioned Skype was available to install. Moments later I got 2 more pop-in notes offering porn sites! Well, that's certainly new!

    Any way to block those?

    Could be unrelated to the update or even to each other - Time for a full anti-malware scan and check browser security

    Well I used the MCT tool to download a ISO directly from MSFT. Mounted it to a virtual CDROM drive and ran the setup. After Win 10 gets installed, check for updates to bring it to 14393.10. Did the same on two other laptops.

    Just received a new PSU for a PC my daughter used which is actually half decent, so when it's running intend to go insider with that & will really only be needed as a music video server etc. Thanks ! :)

    Thanks Nigel. I have the pro version of Malwarebyte's that auto scans on PC start. I'll rescan right now. We'll see.

    Got it... Coming up with a sensible strategy for OneDrive and all these other 'cloud' services is not always straightforward. I confess, I'm pretty old school about these things (been messing with 'microcomputers' since the late 1970's), and I don't trust my stuff on someone else's computer! It's not that I suspect them of malicious intent - it's just that things have a way of going wrong...
    I'm the same. Not a fan of all the cloud stuff. I keep my data locally stored on HD/SSD and backed up in triplicate across three different NAS drives. For external / remote access to my local files I have FTP enabled on one of the NAS drives as well as the handy WD app so my iOS devices can get stuff if needed.

    The one thing that makes me most nervy about cloud data is if the provider goes offline/server problems. Unfortunately my iPhone is so cloud reliant it would literally become a paperweight if Apple dropped the ball. I'm still unsure what would happen if MS servers were down when I try to login to my Windows desktop what with having to login via the MS account. I don't want to unplug the internet to test it out in case it has a bad side effect but surely it does some sort of handshake/call to MS when logging in.

    Disconnect from the net and try logging in to desktop, may be interesting, and best checked when you want to than when you need

    Cloud is increasingly becoming MS's most important service, I doubt they would drop the ball on that one.
