    Confused by update notifications etc


    I picked up from somewhere that M/S have issued an update to remove recent dubious updates, relating to intel processors.

    As I understand this, the required patch is KB4078130. This can be found on the update catalogue - its shown as a legitimate update,but, my PC refuses to download this.
    Does this further mean that additional problems are at the door OR is it a case that my PC does not require this patch.

    I get a window that states "The website has encountered a problem"
    Have tried this on two windows 10 (intel) PC's so far.

    Thank you Brink
    partial success only I'm afraid. The link put the update into my download file, however clicking on that exe file did not start any activity.

    I had the same thing happen to me, but I thought it was just because I'm using an Insider build 17083.

    Same happened to me too, clicking on the .exe appeared to do nothing but checking the registry it looks as though all it really does is change a dword to turn a setting off.
