There are 10 pages of problem reports here:

There're a lot (10 pages worth) of problem reports about this here:
I've got this update installed on 4 Windows 10 systems both 32 and 64 bit on 2 desktops, one with an Intel E7500 CPU and the other with an AMD Phenom-II X3, and I guess I've been lucky. I didn't run into any problems installing it. Based on the above link I can see a lot of folks did though.

I'm shocked at so many. I installed this on both laptop and desktop. The easiest, most flawless OS update I've ever done. Put everything back, everything works, drivers, icons, wallpaper, everything. To be sure, I had an easy upgrade path--both machines were relatively new and native 8.1 machines.

Is it necessary to install the update or can a computer get by without it?

After reading the article...

I think I will wait until next year, around May or June to install Windows 10 hoping all the bugs have been fixed.

Well this is a different Windows approach

your being constantly updated. In the past they didn't release feature updates until service packs and there are no service packs with Windows 10. Fixes and features are released during updates when needed not held for a SP release. So the advantage of waiting isn't an advantage. What they have now is a new build was released yesterday to the Insiders and they will test and then the public will get it. I received the new build on my Insider machine and it seems a little faster.

(NT) If you have the Pro version, yes, otherwise no.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
