    when i download AU, while installing it freezes at some point and stayed there for hours. ultimately i force shut my computer and restarted, but the system was too slow like a snail. Ultimately, i reinstalled the windows and now afraid of installing it. The download was from windows download page and not auto. The downloaded file is still there in my drive E but afraid to touch it.

    I downloaded the ISO and the install took three hours.
    It did seem to stall or freeze several times stuck at certain
    percentages completed, one for an hour, but I hung in there
    and it was working just tediously slow and fine once it was done.

    Here’s another one: once I installed the update I lost the DRM licenses in Napster(Rhapsody) downloads. Nice, thank you Microsoft. I removed it and luckily back to normal.

    I had the freezing problems after installing the Anniversary Update. I rolled back to the previous version. The issue is related to the fact that the OS is installed on the SSD whereas all the other stuff (apps, photos, etc.) are installed on the HDD. I’m still waiting for an official solution from Microsoft before reinstalling the Anniversary Update.

    Bring back the old Windows Update, where we can choose which updates we
    want. This whole business of cramming updates into one huge release
    isn’t working out at all. Who wants to spend two or three hours
    downloading something that’s only going to stall or abort all because
    one little piece of it won’t install properly? Pathetic! Who’s running
    the show in Redmond? Hello?!

    After updating to Windows 10 Anniversary Update I am having problems with WORD 2016. It opens files but does not save them and Word 2016 will not close.
