My PC in my spec was done in about 15 minutes, it restarted about 3 or 4 times.

Well I did my other half's Acer laptop and I don't know what went wrong. Watched everything download and install and waited for the blue restart popup which never happened so I manually restarted and was met with a black screen. Tried doing a repair from the recovery USB but go the same and eventually had to do a factory reset from the recovery USB which took the better part of 3 hours. :confused::confused::confused::confused:

Looks like Microsoft have acknowledged a bug affecting some users following the update:

Microsoft is aware that some devices running the Windows 10 April 2018 Update (version 1803) may hang or freeze when using certain apps, such as “Hey Cortana” or Chrome.

If your device freezes when using an app, try one of the following steps to recover Windows without needing to restart:

  1. Try a Windows key sequence to wake the screen. If you have a keyboard connected, simultaneously press the Windows logo key + Ctrl + Shift + B. If you’re on a tablet, simultaneously press both the volume-up and volume-down buttons, three times within 2 seconds. If Windows is responsive, a short beep will sound and the screen will blink or dim while Windows attempts to refresh the screen.
  2. If you’re using a laptop, close and open the laptop lid.

Microsoft is working on a solution with the goal of including it in the next regular monthly update, currently targeted for a release date of May 8, 2018.

More Windows 10 April 2018 issues as some users experience repeated Explorer.exe crashes

While the Windows 10 April 2018 update was part of a massive beta test using the Windows 10 Insider programme, it seems some serious issues still slipped through.

The latest one to come to our attention is pretty serious and involves Explorer.exe crashing every 3-5 seconds, rendering a user’s machine more or less unusable.

The issue appears related to the new TimeLine feature and occurs when the TimeLine synchronizes user activity to the cloud.

How to fix freezing issues in Windows 10 April 2018 Update

The good thing is that Microsoft is now aware of the issue. A Microsoft Agent has confirmed in the Microsoft Community forum that some devices which are on Windows 10 April 2018 update may experience freezing issues when using applications such as Google Chrome and “Hey Cortana”. So even an app integrated into the operating system has issues with the latest update.
