Part of win 10 upgrade to the creators update.

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

Yes, it notified me and i just updated all 3 days ago. I have read the second link but im not quite understand. So in short, unpuxworker is a part of the new "window creator" content. And i must RUN it in order to UPGRADE to the new "window creator", am i right?
