I hooked up another win 10 computer this afternoon and getting the win updates.  It didn't show the Creator's update so I'm installing it from the link bob3160 posted.  It's only 32% completed and the other updates are installing.  I know I have to restart my computer but just wondering what that will do to the Creator's update.

There is no doubt this massive update is going to be spread over time (I'm in no rush).

If you open the windows update & security from settings then you will see it is coming:

Other than it being another data gathering tool, I would say NO - I have it disabled along with Bing.
