Bob, Have you tried going to the vendors website for the drivers? Asus don't provide drivers for my system anymore but Intel still provides frequent updates for my Wi-Fi and Bluetooth and Realtek for my Ethernet - Audio and Card Reader, all of the above had new drivers released in the last month for Win10.

Does the update to 1703 uninstall Avast like previous build updates have?

No, it does not.
I would suggest that you disable the Avast services before starting the update of Windows 10 v1703.

I haven't had any problems with the win 10 Creators update.  After I read about it via your link Staticguy I'm afraid of what might happen to my computer.  I got a win update for this version today.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it, I say.  No real problems here with version 1703 here either. 

If you're not getting hard freezes, blue screens, generally molasses operation, leave well enough alone and count your blessings.

@midnight: The link that I provided it says that the problems usually occurs "The problem is that some systems – particularly older ones – may not be able to handle the Creators Update, Microsoft said. The US giant has been focusing on updating newer kit first, since it feels that hardware is less likely to run into difficulties, and has thus stopped offering the latest Windows 10 upgrade to computers it suspects may suffer from breakdowns."

If your computer is particularly old then it might run into issues especially with hardware and also few users were also reporting that their Broadcom bluetooth and their wireless network connections looses internet connection.

There was an update to Windows 10 via windows update few days ago and i updated it so far I didn't get any problems or issue.

My laptop is brand new (couple of weeks old) I haven't had any big issues after updating to the Creators Update. I used the Windows 10 Upgrade Assistant. There was only one blue screen before and after updating to Creators Update because of an incompatible/outdated driver of one of the drivers Intel ProSet Wireless Driver. This issue was known to DELL and a DELL Support Agent gained access to my laptop and they installed an updated driver via DELL drivers and support page. Now everything is all well.

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!

We are getting a bit off topic. This topic was and is meant to help with actual Windows 10 1703 problems.
