    Me too, but other than regular defender and occasional security update, no other downloads. With DuMeter I can check exactly how much was downloaded and apart from those I couldn't see anything "extra".
    A couple of those last "security updates" indicated in the description "other enhancements". IMO that's where the seeds are.

    I don't know, I was expecting much larger chunks, at this rate it wouldn't be downloaded for long time.

    Around Monday or so I'm just going to leave my desktop PC running 24/7. I'll just turn my monitors off when I'm done for the day. I'll likely do the same with my laptop and just close the lid. Both are set to never sleep or hibernate.

    Good idea.. I'll do the same.

    I wouldn't expect it to show up in Windows update. It will just download to a folder in the background while your using your PC. One of those enhancements was likely a download manager that can keep track of what bits your PC has and what bits it needs, with a resume function. Like a bit torrent client does. That if you shut down, it doesn't have to start all over again. It just picks up where it left off the next time you boot up.

    EDIT: Actually, I guess that's what the Get Windows 10 App does, right?

    Okay, thank you and I'm looking forward to your solution-suggestion, but I would like to say something (to anyone who is reading this forum seriously and objectively) :

    - It is very disappointing that just a few days before the official release so many bugs exist. Honestly!

    Personally, I do have lots of free time this period (this summer) so I do not mind all these bugs so much. But can you imagine a person who is working, who has a family and other important business to take care of, can you picture this man or woman upgrading to Windows 10 on the 29th or a couple of days later, and face all these issues?!

    All of the sudden, now I have artifacts!
    Each time my desktop's background image is changing, and I have it changing every one minute, I get a line or some squares on the screen, like the image is broken! What the f... is this?! Latest drivers, via Win update. Yes, yes, yes, I have downloaded them again, the .cab file provided in this very forum, yes I have clean-installed them 3 (three) times!! Artifacts! Jesus.........................

    Anyway.

    I hope it will get better. SOON! There's no time, you see! Unless we just make fun of each other here.... You, me, Microsoft, everybody making fun of each other! Hahaha...
    Hi, Joanne!

    I see your pain. I've also been struggling with some issues other people are not hitting on other forums and, therefore, there was not much room to know what is wrong with my particular system.

    Anyway, back on topic and how I fixed the annoying wrong time format on Lock Screen. First of all, make sure you have it set up in both the "old" Control Panel and in Settings the way you want it to be.

    Now, go to "Panel Control->Clock, Language, and Region->Language": Click on "Change date, time, or number formats" on the left, click on the tab called "Administrative". Now click the button "Copy settings...", make sure the info displayed on the screen you get is accurate. Now, tick "Welcome screen and system accounts" and also "New user accounts" for good measure and click OK.

    Now, sign out, and tell me if you have the right time format on the Lock Screen

    Been doing that here since the beginning of the week
    I know its a bit early for it, but just want my laptop to be ready as soon as they start sending bits to it (if they do before 29th)

    . . .just because you are having these problems does not mean that all members here on the 10's are having them. I have none of the problems you are having, and as to the twenty-four clock I haven't used that method of telling time for over thirty years, hence no problems.
