The patch for Meltdown and/or Spectre is causing some Windows machines to fail if they don’t have Intel processors (specifically older AMD processors). Your AMD processor isn’t compatible with the patch(es). You may not be able to roll it back, but you should try. If you can’t restore to an earlier version, you may have to reinstall the OS and immediately disable updates (definitely do NOT update until this problem is addressed). There are also some issues with security software.
Thanks . I was just thinking I might try rolling back . I have a Windows 7 Dell with Corei3 processor . I haven’t updated this PC yet as I feared a similar problem . I left the computer on all night so I’d have at least one working . Are you saying that the patch won’t cause the Dell any problems ? I’ve turned off updates until I get def. info .
not a good idea to avoid updates- a better approach would be to avoid the specific patch KB- block it from updating- hide it so it doesn’t show- then do the other updates as usual
