This update uninstalled my work VPN.
It was always a cludge to get this piece of legacy software going, but its critical work software. Never never never remove it. 
Difficult to express my frustration.

it would be good to know the name of this software too please, so I can see whether this is by design (known issue on upgrade) or its a bug

Thanks

Cisco VPN Client.

Yes its now grandfathered legacy software. But this is the only way Spark have given us to access our server.
I'd tried to raise the fact it was out of date with them, but their rep didn't believe me, saying that they still use it.

Shed PC upgraded, now unable to RDP into it or ping it. Last time it was stupid windows deciding the network was public randomly so I will have to drag a screen and keyboard out there and see what is happening. Or a long HDMI cable and plug it into the shed TV and see whats happening, if its booting etc.

Can I check something with you guys?

The update for my desktop that killed the ability to map network drives was called "th2_professional" or something like that.
The update that has failed to install on my laptop (luckily) has a different name, like "update Windows 10 10586", I cant recall the exact wording and I cant get it to show in Windows Update now.
Are they the same update?
Those who are having networking issues, which update did the damage?

Also, once I get around to rolling my desktop back to 10240, how do I prevent the 10586 update from reinstalling without bringing all updates to a halt?

Windows 10 November update: FAQ

If you uninstalled the November update from your PC, you won't be able to install it again from Windows Update. Instead, you'll need to go to the Microsoft software download website and select Upgrade now to upgrade your PC to Windows 10 Version 1511, which includes the November update.


Seems to be saying, if you uninstall this update, it wont automatically install again.

71 minutes on the phone to MS Support. In the end all they could do was roll me back to build 10240.
I can now access shared drives.

Microsoft support were unable to answer this question...

Is th2_professional (from the Insider builds) the same update as Win 10 1115 (from normal Windows update)?

I ask, as I installed th2 and now that I am back to build 10240 (and out of the Insider program at the moment) I guess update 1115 will come along.
If 1115 is just th2 renamed I will obviously give it the big swerve.

If, when you installed that build, the watermark disappeared then you were on Build 10586.0. There were some updates after that that upgraded the build to 10586.3, which is the build that was released to the world. If there was still a watermark then you never got to the last build released to insiders.

The update uninstalled my Spybot and then presented me a screen suggesting I install it (out of a list of alternatives). Really annoying
