    I just want better control over when the computer will reboot. I still have not figured out how to stop the machines from giving me a short notice then killing what I keep running.

    One user in a forum posted the update 'borked' their Razer computer. Multiple other commenters posted they had no issues when they updated their Razer computers.

    Thanks! I got it yesterday. Took two hours to download, install, and restart. My desktop looks the same as before.

    Friday I installed the update on my laptop. That took about four hours total. Only hiccup seems to be loss of right mouse button action on my wireless Logitech mouse. Several fixes are suggested on the web; workaround is to use trackpad right button instead. I also use a different model Logitech mouse on my desktop machine and the right button there works fine.

    It wasn't the Win 10 update that messed up my mouse. I hadn't used that laptop for several months. I tried the mouse with another computer running Vista. Right button didn't work there either. I have replaced the wireless mouse with an older wired USB-connected HP mouse, which is working fine on the laptop.

    Windows 10 update 1709
    KB4073291 (OS Build 16299.201)
    was automatically downloaded to my computer last night. Unfortunately, configuration hung my computer overnight and I was finally forced to shut the computer down and start it up again. Windows automatically repaired itself and is now running okay. Microsoft reports that this release has problems with some antivirus software, which probably explains my problem. I'm using Malwarebytes premium and McAfee LiveSafe.

    As nothing more than a point of reference, after having postponed it for as long as I was practicably able on the last of my Win 10 1607 boxes that I had not already allowed to update, I finally received, yesterday, the Win 10 Creators Update (1709) on this one. As with all the others, and after what seemed to be another nearly interminable installation time and reboot process, which was, in actuality probably closer to about 90 minutes including the requisite installation of subsequent updates and the manual updating/installation and reordering of more than a few "look-and-feel" items, the end result was yet another Win 10 box that is running pretty much it was before.

    My far bigger concern is that the developer of Classic Shell, a shell app that I have both used and recommended for as long as I can remember, has decided to retire from active development of the same and place it into public domain.

    I'm not sure I would ever have moved from Win 7 to Win 8/8.1 and then to Win 10 without the availability of Classic Shell, but for now, and as before, everything that was working before is still working both quite groovily and quite peachily.

    I still have a few Quality Updates that need to be installed. However, the first of the three--cumulative update for Windows 10 Version 1709 for X64 based systems (KB4056892) indicates that installation has failed and won't allow the other updates (which state a restart is needed for completion) to be processed. I've tried the Windows update diagnostic and it can't fix the problem. Next step is a chat with Microsoft Support.

    Well, I finally gave up and selected the Reinstall Windows 10 option, which of course wiped out all my applications and data--I've been in the process of reinstalling all my programs since yesterday. Fortunately, I had a backup on an external Seagate BackupPlus drive. Unfortunately, the latest backup was from last October. Since that time, I've been using Acronis for backups, but sadly, the backups were on my C drive. I hadn't gotten around to installing a second hard drive or large external drive. That's something I have to work on.

    I am pretty sure I had the same problem a couple of days ago and I do not have this latest version installed yet.
    The button to pop up the apps and the power options would not do anything.
    What I found that I could do was to Right click the mouse while it hovered over the button and the power options were in the list that popped up. I was able to use that to shut down the computer. The next time I tried to shut it down, it worked like it was supposed to.

    My PC and my wife's laptop were updated to KB4058258. Neither one of us are experiencing any issues with this update.
