    FWIW there's a thread in Microsoft Communities about no update of Adobe Flash Player, but no answers so far.

    Guys...i've updated the hybrid tablet of my girlfriend yesterday and saw the updates related to the compatibility within Windows 10:

    Kb3035583

    Kb2976978

    Kb3044374

    Uninstalled those three because i wasn't sure and she either too, go Windows 10 yet before official release. I'm posting because none mentionned if they did it too.

    Installed OK here too. As has become something of an obsession lately, I checked free space before and after applying this update. Lol, this one has gained me almost 0.5gb. The way updates play havoc with reported free space is something I find very strange in 8.1.

    After a week or two(and no signs of problems or compatibility issues) I run Disk Cleanup. Do you regain your space after running it as administrator and choosing Windows update cleanup and rebooting? I do recommend waiting a couple of weeks though, so you can roll back or uninstall an update if you get issues, but I see in your specs you use Defender, so I guess, like me, you don't get any issues, as most issues are usually to do with 3rd party AV. In case it interest you, after all the Windows updates in the last two days, windows cleanup has 63MB, but I'll clean it next(not this coming) Saturday when I make my system image.

    I never seem to regain more than a few 10's of mb at most running a disk clean (system files cleanup) however I have often noticed that free space can jump back up significantly some days later.

    A week or so back I discovered the DISM Reset Base command (Dism.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup /ResetBase) which surprised me by freeing up uite a bit of space despite my regular cleanups.
