FYI...

Ms Patch Alert: February's fixes aren’t as bad as last month, but problems abound
... All is not well. The Win10 Fall Creators Update cumulative update is bluescreening some PCs  and dropping USB connections for many — and there’s a bug in the Win7 Monthly Rollups that cause a boot-to-black

Feb 26, 2018 - "... Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release. Workaround steps are available in KB4091240.

Applies to: Windows 10
... Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release. Workaround steps are available in KB4075150.

If you’d rather wait until the coast is clear, and prefer not to sweat the small stuff, make sure you have Outlook fixed if you need to then go get a cup of coffee. Check back again in a few days, to see whether Microsoft has finally given us a version of Win10 1709 that actually, you know, works – and if there are any further problems with the second cumulative updates for 1703 and 1611. Don’t expect a fix for the Win7 boot to black screen problem..."
