    On Windows 10 Pro the upgrade goes really smooth. I only noticed it because of the unread messages.

    On WIndows 10 at leats 171 required restart, the notification popup is not nice if you are recording a movie.

    Otherwise quite smooth.

    today it went askew: FS hoster suddenly hung, after some research I found out Windows defender had been reactivated (not by me) or not deactivated during yday install.

    I sent bug reports and capture as requested.

    I uninstalled et reinstalled after a registry cleanup (CCcleaner)

    Had a problem on my Windows 7 machine this morning, after it received the FS upgrade last night.  I received a "The User Profile Service failed the logon” error message, and I couldn't log in to my computer.  I followed the instructions in Method 1 in the link below, and everything seems OK now, but I haven't restarted it again yet.  I don't know if it was anything to do with the FS upgrade, but it seems a strange coincidence, given I've not seen the issue before, so I've sent in a bug report.

    imo 172 is buggy and we had an unexpected server/infrastructure overhaul by the end of last week

    Difficult to say for certain what caused my issues, as they haven't occurred since, and there's been no software update since this last one (that I'm aware of).

    I do not think that this release more "buggy", than some of previous releases.

    Also with current tp-release...  also comes some of good fixes.


    What about trouble about login to system (in my experience... I more often get another trouble, but also have experience with _maybe_ the same trouble... which noted as "The User Profile Service failed the logon") - I thought about F-Secure/FS Protection about potential reason (just because.. usually I get this after/briefly after clean install or upgrade it). But not always....... and I do not meet this long time as (but I also randomly.. start to less "do shutdown" or "restart" for main system, where this is happened more often - than with any other systems).
