Hi themetallikid,

If you didn't experience issues before, corruption of the system may have happened during the upgrade to Windows Version 1903 (19H1). I have seen multiple computers experiencing unexpected behaviour after such upgrades, so it may be the case here.

No, I don't think you will experience catastrophic issues, only erratic behaviour.
However, please be sure to regularly make backup of your personal files on an external hard drive. I was not able to exactly determine what the issue is, so better be safe than sorry.

Thanks for your kind words.

Regards.

Hi themetallikid,

Yes, probably : Microsoft is starting to auto-update Windows 10 Home, Pro users on 1803 or older to 1903.
Older builds of Windows 10 Home Edition did not have the option to pause updates.

Regards.

Hi, themetallikid

You may have some clues with the windowsupdate.log file : Windows Update log files.

Please keep in mind that you may have to generate it and that it contains many information.
There should be a KB associated to the upgrade, but since I don't follow the Windows 10 lifecycle closely I don't know which one you should look for.

Regards.

ok....again thank you very much.   I didnt think it came from my behavior, it sounds like MS's behavior more and that I'll need to lean on their recommendations.
