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

Of course you can also go to the download site, especially if you want to create installation media (USB flash drive or DVD), perform a clean installation, or reinstall Windows 10.  Download Windows 10.

Windows 10, version 1803 - Features that have been removed | Microsoft Docs

While the referenced article lists features removed or no longer being developed in the Spring Update (Version 1803), information is included about what has replaced the features or alternative methods to achieve those features/functions.

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. ::)
