    Creators Update "Normal" Behavior?


    Booted up Gayle's little HP Laptop this morning and got the update window with "Lets Get Started" and saying "they" had some things to perform before the update. In retrospect, I should have connected an Ethernet cable, but oh well.

    After just over two hours of what I assume was downloading, and consuming every bit of CPU, Memory, & Disk resource available Task Manager shows everything back to normal now for the last 20 or 30 minutes. No error messages or hiccups in the process. Windows Installer is no longer running. Single biggest Memory process right now is Windows Defender Antimalware Service.

    This is a whole different process than what I had updating this Dell desktop. How long before the next phase kicks in? Is it automatic, or am I supposed to do something?

    Edit/Update:
    Checking the WU status it told me I needed a restart to finish. Would have been nice to have something pop up and tell me that. It's doing it's thing now, "Getting Windows Ready".

    If nothing else, this may be something others may want to know for updating.

    Update:
    Restart successful followed by next phase downloading. Now stuck at 5%. Oh how I wish I would have connected to the network via cable instead of letting the Wi-Fi run.

    After all was said and done, the only issue I could find was the AdwCleaner .exe disappeared. An easy enough fix. One thing that did strike me is System Protection remained ON.

    It's a good day in the neighborhood.
