Just one question- have they given up on pushing Win 10? I had it loaded on all of my computers- ready for me to push the GO button and all of a sudden NOTHING for several weeks.

No, I'm NOT complaining.
No, they apparently are taking a breather until the next attack early next year when they will start automatically downloading and installing it to all computers that have fully automatic updating enabled.

I support about 30 computers for family, friends, friends of friends and a few strangers. Some people contact me every week with problems. Others can go for months without any issues. Such a hobby I've picked for myself :-)

I support another 40 computers at work... but at work, I can push various settings out from my desktop computer.
70 altogether? I'm getting a headache just reading that!

They need to brick those, otherwise no one will use the Live Tiles.

Does anyone know if the others are safe?

Perhaps it checks to see if you are running Gadgets (I'm using Rainmeter).

That one is causing some issues with Outlook apparently:
Latest Windows Patches Causing Outlook Crashes Windows 10 News and Updates

That could just be Windows 10 though, I'm not sure as I don't use outlook myself.
