    I bought my computer last year with Windows 10 installed on it.
    When the Anniversary Update came up it auto installed it.
    However I then had a black screen and some programs wouldn't work.
    I had a friend who works with computers come to sort it out.
    However, my friend is not well at the minute. so am very nervous about installing the Creators Update, in case there should be problems again, as don't know what I'm doing.
    I keep getting pop ups to remind me
    Can you advise me please?

    For now ignore the Popups...... just be patient and wait.

    Creators Update contains a lot of changes. With so many changes it is always possible that something may not mesh with a particular setup on an individual system, which might result in a compromised or even unbootable system.

    It would therefore be wise to take a System Image, create an Repair Disk and Backup user files. You don't need special software to do any of this, all of which can be done from within the W10 utility File History which you will find in Control Panel.

    Thank you
    Will it auto update in the end though?

    But don't understand how to do any of this.
