    I have client with 8.1. Last Tuesday it updated and got security KB4056895. Since then his machine BSOD on DPC Watchdog Violation.

    I removed said KB Thursday, set updates to none, and it has been running fine. His processor is an A6-5400K.

    My plan was to wait to Feb 13/18 and re initiate updates. Thanks for responding.

    The fix for AMD CPUs is KB4073290 but this is only currently available in 64 bit format. Users like me forced to use 32 bit Windows 10 on old AMD CPUs remain stuffed until a 32 bit update is released.
    @Steve C, The 32-bit one appeared a little while later....

    Cumulative Update KB4073291 Windows 10 v1709 Build 16299.201 - 32-bit

    Thanks. I installed that and all works fine with no sign of the offending previous update.

    The KB4056892 update was successfully installed on here on the 5th of January. I have an HP Envy x360 Convertible 15-bq0xx with Windows 10 64 bit and a AMD A9 -9420 Radeon R5 Processor.

    After seeing this post I'm wondering if that update is the cause of the odd random shutdowns I've been getting. There is no pattern to them I could be in the middle of moving around a forum or perhaps in my email program when suddenly the screen goes black, after a few seconds it starts back up, sometimes it does a complete boot up with looking for me, I have facial log on, other times it might just come back at the desktop and I have to bring the browser back up and get the message do I want to restore as it didn't shut down properly, clicking that and I'm back in the exact place I was before. Sometimes I have to wait for the internet connection to catch up and re-connect me and at others I'm still connected.

    Whats the thoughts here ?

    Since the release of the Spectre and Meltdown fixes there has been all kinds, in my opinion, reports of random boots. Started with AV's not conforming to rules, then AMD documentation was centered out. Even Intel posted something that Brink has in the Windows news on random reboots. Vendors even released BIOS updates they seem to be retracting on. Here is an article on HP.

    Myself I see little harm in uninstalling updates especially if you think they are the cause. Most of us don't open unexpected attachments, surf sites we know and have good AV's.

    If the uninstall doesn't fix, re-install. If it does fix your situation your voice can be added to the feedback hub.

    This Spectre / Meltdown fix is likely more complicated than they realized and will take more that one or two tries to resolve.

    One opinion.

    I don't have Intel, the first line in my post did state I had an AMD processor on this HP and I don't click on unexpected attachments and only visit sites that I trust, Windows Defender and MalwareBytes Premium with Anti Exploit are my security plus my own common sense.

    I only got it at the end of December and it's all up to date via Windows Update, I'm at version 1709 build 16299.192.

    Yes I saw you had AMD, I only mentioned Intel as they seem to be the last one reporting issues.

    As I said I would remove the update and test.

    It seems as if Intel were the main one affected when this all started, I can't remember now which one it was but Shawn did have a post that showed whether your machine was affected and I know mine wasn't at that time. I know I'm tempting fate but I think for the time being I'll leave things as they are, not had any problems for the last couple of days, fingers crossed.
