    I have seen in a different forum that there is already a newer version out 10586.499 (KB3172988). What's up with that??

    Just seems to be they are getting more 'stuff' in place in advance of the Anniversary release, should be numbered as 1607 instead of the current 1511.

    Totally agree.

    Personally, I skipped right over 8 and 8.1 but it seems things started badly there and 10 is just an evolution of those but still has so many problems. The problems many have had with this update showing the OS to be akin to playing Russian roulette, you just don't know what's going to happen. Personally I think trying to wedge the whole 'apps' into it and make it a hybrid mobile/desktop OS has made life difficult for the OS. Not to mention it's too cloud and MS account orientated so your at the mercy of MS servers behaving themselves. Things would be better if they had separate OS for desktop and separate OS for their mobile devices. Windows 7 was a terrific OS and patch Tuesday was always more reliable - imagine how mature and stable the OS would of been if they stuck with 7 and focused on improving that rather than trying to make us forget it ever existed. We've lost DVD playback, much better photo gallery in-built software and things like movie maker and DVD maker. We've lost what was a much better start menu and gained a store and native apps of questionable reliability and functionality. Edge is unpredictable and far less functional than IE11 or chrome/Firefox so it feels like a backwards step. It changes default programs without asking and even disables certain programs it doesn't like. Securom (as annoying as it was) has been disabled knocking out half my optical games library. We've gained more bugs than an English country garden on a hot summers day and gained a measure of unpredictability, so many people struggle with native apps breaking and no easy fix with the powershell fix in danger of making the damage even worse. Repair installs at an all time high. So seeing some of the carnage this latest cumulative update has just caused even more dissapointment. Trouble is there is no escaping 10 - I really hope it improves and the anniversary update makes things better but for now it's unpredictable nature has tested my enjoyment of computing.

    to be honest I didn't even see the point in this latest cumulative update with anniversary update due on 2 Aug. It seems to be quite a big update which will be totally redundant soon anyway. Obviously security flaws need patching but given the size they seem to of changed more than that.
    I agree with you completely. Since using Windows 10 I already had to reinstall it 7 times. Reminds me back with the Windows 95 days. Something always gets corrupted either apps won't load, the printer spool uses high cpu, corrupt Window folders, etc. Windows 8 I which I used for a year and a half I already only installed it once. Windows 7 I only had to reinstall twice because I got a new hard drive.

    I agree if everything is working there is no need to reinstall. I personally would only reinstall as a last resort

    hi guys , i have some question. i checked "Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 KB3172985" page on microsoft site and there was a description said :
    If you have installed earlier updates, only the new fixes that are contained in this package will be downloaded and installed on your computer. If you are installing a Windows 10 update package for the first time, the package for the x86 version is 501 MB and the package for the x64 version is 914 MB.
    and now here is the things , i downloaded previous update which was about 700MB and installed it manually because my internet connection is slow and i cant update my windows through windows update section.

    so based on microsoft said if i download this update (KB3172985) through windows update section , it just download about 200MB new fixes ?

    another question is about update KB3172988 which is release 2 days after update KB3172985. now which one i need to download ? do i download both update or just new one ?

    sorry for my bad english

    you can download KB3172988 then manually update it to build 10586.499
    if you already turn off windows update on services make sure turn it back on before applying the new updates & disable antivirus protection.
