    Haven't clean installed, but finished editing the images for Win 10 Ent 1809 and Win 10 Ent LTSC 2019. Difference is removing 72 components versus removing like 42 or 44 components, changing settings is similar on both, and services is generally the same. For a rough list of what I selected to remove from LTSC, see the following images below. I left Cortana in, but disabled in services. I, personally, like the search bar and search function, just not cortana. I find it better to go into the live OS after install and remove one of the two Cortana apps per user (leave the core app, remove the secondary app). Others disagree. Same with edge, which I keep as a backup as I moved away from chrome entirely and do not install it on my computers. With that said, here is my list:

    Edit: I have not tested the above image. You may want to get rid of some components not listed or leave some in depending on your needs. The only one I am iffy on is the windows remote management. But, this will kill your remoting in with some programs (hence remote registry and remote assistance removal, but remote desktop protocol still being present). So please be aware of your personal use cases.

    Microsoft pulled the Windows 10 update that has been deleting files
    A link to the October update has disappeared while it checks things out.
    Richard Lawler, @Rjcc, 22h ago
    https://www.engadget.com/2018/10/06/windows-10-october-update-delete-pulled/

    "Over the last couple of days, some users who went ahead and installed theWindows 10 October Update have complained that it deleted personal files in their documents folders. Microsoft hadn't started pushing the update automatically via Windows Update yet, and it looks like that may be delayed since, as noticed by Techdows, it has removed the update from itsdownload site.

    Currently the newest version available to download is the old October update, and there's the following message on its support page.

    Microsoft:

    We have paused the rollout of the Windows 10 October 2018 Update (version 1809) for all users as we investigate isolated reports of users missing some files after updating.

    Over on Reddit, posters have found that you can still download 1809 if you absolutely must have it for testing or just curiosity (make sure your backups are current first -- you are making regular backups, right?) from this link (404 right now). This is a troubling trend for Microsoft, after it also experienced issues with the Spring update earlier this year.

    Update: In case you're wondering how this bug made it so far, Rafael Rivera tweeted screenshots of reports showing the issue posted to Microsoft's Feedback Hub for Windows Insider beta testers. It appears that because it impacted relatively few testers, the reports weren't flagged, and once more people started installing the update, that small percentage started to represent a larger number.

    There are a lot of low upvote reports, and Feedback Hub auto-collection[1] failed, so they got buried in the noise. Will be interesting to get a RCA on this from the@windowsinsider team and hear more about how they're addressing this tough problem.

    I really asked about "Clean install" of v1809?
    Updating redstones to another redstone shouldn't need Clean install because there are only minor changes. New updates always wrecks my IDEs.

    Need some advice. The new update installed behind my back, but so far I haven't had any issues save for a quirky one with my Maxthon Browser. The question is, should I risk rolling back and wait for the corrected update or just hang tight and wait for the fixes to the currently installed one?

    If it has installed and rebooted, you shouldn't be affected. I think rolling back might leave you more vulnerable, because reports seem to have mentioned problems appearing on first reboot, not after.

    Let it be as it is and wait to see what M$ come up with. Then still don’t do nothing the first week after new release.

    Microsoft Raises Prices of Windows 10 Home Licenses
    by btarunr Tuesday, October 9th 2018 11:13 Discuss (1 Comment)
    Not long after releasing a poorly tested Windows 10 October 2018 update that has wiped out user data for countless users, exposing Microsoft to class-action litigation for data loss despite its update EULA stating that Microsoft isn't liable to data loss; the company has shored up retail prices of its Windows 10 Home licenses. Windows 10 Home now sells for USD $139, a 40% hike from its $99.99 general availability price on the Microsoft Store. OEM licenses of the operating system can still be had for $99 on Newegg. The Windows 10 Pro version still retails for $199.
