    Ya, don't worry about anything! Be glad that you have one of the best operating systems out there! =)

    The updates install themselves in the background without you knowing, so yes, it is very likely that the update has installed itself (yet still needs to restart your computer and load up to finish up completely).

    Don't stress yourself out about a thing!

    (Shutting down the computer is still okay, once it gets started up, it will continue. Yet restarting it would be more preferred in general)

    Correct; Updates will install themselves without you knowing that they did.

    I have just restarted the notebook and it still shows 1511 so it has not installed... not showing in installed updates..

    It is just checking for updates now so I will see what appears

    That is also true. I've had updates install themselves in the past, and didn't show up in the history immediately, they show up a little later sometime. But no worries! Since you restarted the computer and everything went fine, you should relax (you said it was night time). Don't stay up on this. By tomorrow, everything will get clearer.

    Just be glad that the computer restarted and loaded up =)

    OK. not going mad, it has now reappeared

    Would this install itself when I shut down overnight by itself...I shut down using the fast boot Windows 10 version of shut down, I know it did install one earlier overnight..

    Where are you seeing 1511? Are you using the winver command in the Command Prompt (Admin)?

    Sure, you can press Install Now, as long as you have an extra 30 minutes to spare to make sure it installs completely.

    So after you press Install Now, wait until the updates finish. Once you can confirm (computer says) the updates are complete, restart the computer. This will take some time. After the computer restarts, you can look at the Update history if you want. (Be aware that if you STILL don't see the update there, do not get mad or worried or anything bad!! It is all OKAY! Sometimes this happens, it might take some time to show up there, like I said before).

    After all that, restart computer to confirm everything loads up properly.

    I have turned off for the night now but I will be brave and click "install" tomorrow Lol I check version using the about section in settings... but now its reappeared no idea what happened Lol

    Does 1607 install the same as any other Windows update? I was expecting it to be like Windows installing again rather than an update for some reason? i.e Windows is installing etc
