Weird...
It finished "Preparing" and asked for a reboot...

After the reboot, the only thing installed was the FlashPlayer update. It was still asking for a reboot for the Windows 1709 update....

After three reboots, I tried to uninstall it, but apparently that doesn't happen with partially installed updates.

As I type this I'm attempting to see if the "Media Creation Tool" can finish the job.

No wonder all my friends at the DunningFools forum are paranoid about unplanned updates :)

I ran the media update without a hitch. I have a number of systems to update and it is faster for me.

Hi techie,

You can find the the at rest CPU, system temperatures and fan speed in the Bios as well. It is located under the H/W feature. The fan speeds can be adjusted here as well.
At the moment ill leave all as is except i did change the Bios to "Failsafe Default". Rebooted and ran both linux and Windows systems for 4 hours and no over heating in fact it was very cool so if it was overclocked thats taken care of.
I did blow it out with my compressor (i was careful) and all was clean except the power supply had quite abit of dust clumps that blew into the interior of the case which i had to blow out all over again;-).
Tonight i have the time to install a new Linux system and then ill know if it runs hot or not although 4 hours of running last night should have heated it up if it was going to.
It had W7 on it and it was an illegal copy so thats the hd im going to format and load linux on.
Ill check temps and fan speeds this weekend to see what im dealing with but if a problem comes up i might be in Bios sooner.
Looks like a 900 Antec tower but has much more plumbing than ive seen in pics of the MSI original MB.
Thanks for all the links and all the help/info you all supplied. Its been very helpful for this noob;-)
I am abit suprised at all the memory sticks it has. i havent pulled any to check but i will this weekend. Its supposed to take Turbo memory only and it looks like there is other sticks in there but it does run very nicely even though its probably been through hell;-).
If any problems come up ill be back to get advice from the pro's.
Thanks to all,
Ghost

Random thought...maybe that personalize settings box was cataloguing my update settings changes?


My question was because I wasn't getting how the fall creator update was going to fix something I did to myself.

I really like that we will be able to lock our document and picture files from ransomware attacks.

I believe it was the settings.

Seeing as how it is being released to "newer" devices first, I am surprised that you are getting it so soon.  One of the major changes that was made in the process of upgrading to a new build was to do as much as possible during that install process as possible so people can continue working while that goes on in the background, thus reducing the down time that was experienced with previous upgrades.  It still takes time but not as much down time as in the past.

(Don't forget to check System Restore settings after completing the upgrade.)

Since my computer is three years old, I didn't expect to get the fall update right away, and just checked so I could get the flash update for Edge & IE.

But....

Feature update to Windows 10, version 1709

 2017-10 Security Update for Adobe Flash Player for Windows 10 Version 1703 for x64-based Systems (KB4049179)
It's been sitting there for almost two hours, and it's now...

Preparing to install updates 46%
Based on past experience, it would have been quicker to just use the "media creation tool" and get it over with.
