    this download certainly opened a can of worms for me, which took the evening to sort out, first attempt failed so ran repair second attempt downloaded and installed to 97 % then hung for an hour, third attempt then showed it was installing fall update which was already installed but I clicked ok and waited another hour while this downloaded it then added three updates to the download including the fix it then installed each taking more time eventually it stated all installed correctly to my great relieve I don't know what went wrong I leave that to the gods I'm just happy I have landed up with a laptop that is noticeably faster than it was not slower, it would be interesting to know what caused this but it could only be a one off concerning my set up I suppose and I certainly don't have the knowledge or computer savvy to delve in to the unknown. good year wishes to all

    Weird man, i am having no problems whatsoever at the moment. Its been a lot different as i had my fair share of issues with Windows but as for now there are no issues.

    Than again, i am on AMD instead Intel, perhaps that could explain it.

    Hi guys,

    As someone who's just postponed an order for a new i7 8700k over the Meltdown/Spectre shit storm, could anyone please provide me with some benchmarks on the performance hit this patch allegedly introduces?

    I have been searching for this info all morning
    Hi!
    Updated today with KB4056892 without any issues so far. Did a test with Microsoft Flight Simulator X and it was smooth as usual.
    Also tested with Cinebench R15 and I got the same scores now as I had before the update.

    Caveat; No mention of "Meltdown/Spectre" on Microsofts support page for this update.

    For us Win 10 Fast ring folks, there was a STRANGE Intel update floating around a couple of months ago. No one knew what it was for. I bet that was the patch
    Highly likely, John. MS did say these fixes in the KB were first introduced to Insiders in Nov/Dec time frame.

    I see a lot of ppl reporting just their patch's install experience, which is fine. Unfortunately no one is shedding some light on the bigger question: is this patch enough for people to be reasonably safe or do we need other updates? If so, which ones? Besides updating internet browsers, do we need to update the cpu microcode as well? Is a MB Bios flash necessary? I'm having difficulty imagining Asus, Gigabyte and others releasing bios updates for their older models (3/4+ years old). I seriously hope that update won't be needed, otherwise we'll never be truly "safe".
    Anyway, shoud you guys need it, here are the latest official intel cpu microcodes, dated 11/2017, which can be updated under windows via a simple program called VMWare Cpu Microcode Update Driver. Download links for both to follow:
    - Download Linux* Processor Microcode Data File
    - VMware CPU Microcode Update Driver

    Should you people come across useful info while surfing the web please don't hesitate to share them among the users. It's the only way for a lot of ppl out there to get informed. Thank you everyone.

    Check this post , Martin. It's suggested to check your MB/Vendor's site for BIOS/FW updates. I checked for my Dell Alienware, and got one dated 01/03/2108.

    Yup. It's most likely your AV. I suggest checking if your AV is compatible with these kernel upgrades; see my previous few posts.

    Can the OP please add this very important disclaimer?

    If your AV has not been patched:

    You risk BSODs and bootlooping your system.
    You didn't even get patched. MS will not activate the Meltdown/Spectre fixes until your AV has been patched.


    This patch does nothing unless your AV has also been patched.


    Brink, I highly recommend add the disclaimer above or something to that effect so that people actually know whether they have been patched.

    Simply installing this KB does not actually offer any protection. Even worse, it might cause BSODs and bootloops.
    I only use Defender so I do not think so.

    Pardon my French, but that sucks. Because of age?
