Howard, after a couple of restarts it seems to be behaving atm, though it did do the browser window thing randomly. So will probably be some time before I find out for sure.  I don't know if this update is being pushed on to everyone automatically, it doesn't show as a update for my other PC's at the moment.  On this laptop I clicked the check for updates button and there it was.

I will say it took quite some time to update as well,  so when or if you do go for it, make sure you don't need to use the PC for a while.   I would also recommend a google search for 1809 bugs, just in case there's something there which will affect you directly.  ;)

Just curious as to what version and build of Windows everyone is using.

I recently upgraded this laptop to Windows 10 version 1809.  Must say it's the most unstable update for Windows 10 so far.  Does some really weird things.  Noticed when I shut it down, next time I boot it up one or more browser windows are open, and giving me message about a session not closing properly.  I'll have to grab the exact error next time I see it.   Something just doesn't feel right with this build.

I know Microsoft had problem with this update when they first tried to release it, but thought they had fixed most of the problem now they have unleashed it again.  The original one was deleting files from some people who installed it, at least it hasn't done that to me.
