    Almost all? How many do you have at home? I have 3 + a laptop. The 3 have all been updated manually - just waiting for the laptop. So what's the expectation as to when they will all be done?

    What countries ?

    In the USA I wouldn't be surprised if there are more upgrades, In NZ like last time there have been many people who had to wait 6 months or more before the Wu pushed it out.

    Just a couple of weeks ago, was at a persons place, and they still hadn't gotten the last one, even though lots of other Windows cumulative updates and other Eg: Defender, were coming through as well as manual checks every couple of weeks. (this has happened quite a few times)

    Ran the exe from MS's site that checks for any new and that downloaded the latest 1703 - so basically they skipped a whole version.

    Millions of others however are productively running programs instead.

    Gave it a go before going out. First failed with the same error as the previous few, but after hitting retry, away it went. Took quite a while to install, the download was quick. Doing the second one now, but appears to be checking for updates a lot longer - oh well no hurry.

    For the first time in a while, 3 installs all went smoothly. The only aggravation was that the process hung for ages on two of the machines during the Initialization/download/preparation phases but after the rebpoot the actual install was very quick.

    It really irritates me that things hang with absolutely no indication of any progress or indeed any activity at all. It would be less annoying if you knew that everything would eventually go smoothly but when there is a good chance there will be an error it is a PITA.
