Windows 10 upgrade 1511 10586, any problems

Before I take the plunge allow this update, are there any pitfalls at all or is it ok to go ahead. Would welcome any feedback from those of you who have installed this update.

It should install ok. I had no problems with it.

You will get windows old back again with it maybe keep it for a while before you delete it.

It took about 3 hours in all. Do not disturb it. There are long pauses and restarts, like a full installation.

Disaster...My printers have disappeared and none of my browsers respond ( IE 11, Firefox or Edge ) am having to access the net via my I Pad. Anyone else had problems like this. I see bjh above had printer problems.

You will have Windows old on it but not sure if you can transfer the lan and wifi drivers over from it.

Set IE as the default might help.

And maybe run sfc /scannow as administrator and see if it finds any problems and fixes them.

After a couple of re boots, all now seems to be ok. Very odd.

Glad it sorted itself out. Hope it stays that way but no doubt you will get a few other niggles as time goes by.
