I received a text from my husband this morning. He wanted to know just what the heck usoclient.exe was and why it popped up briefly and then disappeared when he was booting us his Windows 10 laptop. Nobody wants to see a mysterious .exe file on their PC.


It’s nothing to worry about. The usoclient is the Windows 10 Update Orchestrator.  It’s part of the process that reboots your PC after automatic updates.  So it’s not a virus or anything you need to worry about. Though some folks have complaints about how it works. I’ll address some of those issues in a later tip.
