    Yea, don't worry about it at all for now! =)

    When you wake up tomorrow, we'll install the new update!

    And don't stress out about the whole Windows Update messages, because they are completely confusing at times, yet they get the job done! So it will all work out by tomorrow.

    So 1607 is a normal update, just a bit larger to add features like a service pack used to be, it will just be like any other update, not a reinstall type update?

    Lol thank you... using my old Vista desktop now... still going strong

    Thanks for all the help and advice, great forum, glad I joined Been a Windows 10 user for a couple of weeks and love it...

    You are 100% correct! 1607 is a normal update, yet much bigger that adds more features, services, security fixes, etc. It's just like any other update. It will Not reinstall anything; All your settings will stay the same =)

    You're welcome and I'm glad you're enjoying Windows 10 =)

    Thank you for all your help and reassurance... Will see what tomorrow brings, who know it may do it overnight for me anyway Lol

    That is the only thing I do not like, not being able to say yes or no to updates...

    Thanks again.. I will be back soon

    Well I still have not been brave enough to click "install" although I may do it this afternoon Lol ...

    What I have noticed is the one update for v1511 has installed itself overnight whilst in the fast boot shutdown... I can confirm this as the last thing I did last night before turning off was see if the updates were still there, that was at around 10PM UK time... 3rd September... The update shows as installed on the 4th September, again I checked as soon as I powered up...

    Consider you have had a lucky escape. After installing the Anniversary update, I can't access my digital certificates, my homegroup had to be reinstalled, I get constant printer errors, it doesn't roll back to the previous version correctly, so you will be stuck with it, it is slower and in my opinion not worth the bother.

    That is why I am in two minds to press install... you hear the bad reports, then again I own a vehicle enthusiast forum and like all forums you only hear about the bad things, not the 1000's that are happy, just makes you think though..

    Is your computer an "out of the box" pre installed Windows 10 machine? reading most forums people that have upgraded from an older Windows version seem to be having more issues than factory pre installed machines... I see very few that are related to new, pre installed Windows 10 machines...

    My old HP Envy which was 5 years old updated OK and seemed OK but I had issues with black screens when waking from sleep mode and had to power off... I suspect that the older machines are not quite as compatible as Microsoft say

    I updated from Windows 8.1, which was so badly flawed as to be almost unusable. I have been quite happy with Windows 10 until this update.

    That is what I mean, I think that Microsoft have upgraded, or should I say allowed the upgrade on notebooks and PC's that are not quite 100% compatible..

    This new HP Envy I have had for a couple of weeks and it is so far fantastic, love Windows 10, my old 5 year HP Envy was originally on Windows 7 which it is again now, Windows 10 was great apart from when I used sleep mode it would not always wake up.. I had to reboot by holding the power button...

    I have read a lot on the issue and as I say almost all I have read on many forums have all been upgrades....

    As my old Envy is a 2nd machine I am going to use as a 2nd machine in the bedroom to replace my old desktop, I may try a clean install of Windows 10 rather than an upgrade to see if that improves the issue I had..
