You're so right, uncle_al.  I don't know how I managed that but have corrected the title in my posts.  Thanks you!

I'm seeing hundreds of news ads after updating to 1803.
I'm using theses extensions below:
Ghostery, Adblock Plus, uBlock Origin, and F. B. Purity.

Also the Windows .old folder is still there.

1803 installed painlessly (and relatively quick).

No changes to my system nor privacy settings except for the new features.

Well done Microsoft.  8)

My bad, I recon that’s normal on mns. Just never paid any attention to that before while on MNS.
Going to other sites blockers seem to be working just fine. Silly me as I’m very new to Windows 10 but could have sworn that there were some sites blocked on MSN.

Yes it was on my Alienware. Windows update even gave me errors.. Looks like a Microsoft issue or/and Dell?

Thanks Jeff, I am going to wait for a fix though because I do not want to disable or uninstall my Graphics drivers. ::)

Now that I think about it I do remember ads blocked on MSN. Nothing is blocked and when I uninstalled the exstentions they were all on.  I reinstalled them all and nothing is blocked on MSN but all other sites are working well. I don’t get it. It did take a long time to install the new OS 1803.
Oh yes I forgot to add I was stuck on 49% for a good time.

Hi Sherry:
    I installed the build on my Dell laptop.............no problem ran smoothly.   Its quite evident Microsoft needs to do a bit better job on this build

 I have installed 1803 to 4 systems (2 laptops, 1 desktop, 1 tablet). An 8th Core i3, 8GB, HDD system failed to reinstall the drivers for a Canon TS 9020 printer. Other than that, there have been no issues. I seriously recommend Restarting the system two more times after Desktop appears and the system settles after the upgrade. Something about everything not all arriving at the same time after the first appearance of Desktop. UNC :)

Hi there Antus67..you are one of the lucky ones then...

 Most Dell Alienware cannot get the update to 1803. Issues here at Answers Microsoft https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-windows_install/hybrid-laptops-with-discrete-gpu-connected-to/3518f6b4-c267-4d38-b5b9-d5ea0c16e975?tm=1525314302049&auth=1
