Wondering if there is a new virus out there that is causing machines to go to automatic Repair. In the last three weeks I have had three desktop and one laptop computers crash then defaulting to the automated repair message. I have never seen the message before three weeks ago on any of my machines running Windows 10. Any advise is appreciated.

I must say, if you do choose to hide the update(s) in the manner I detailed, the Win Update screen in 10 will give you a "scary" screen saying your pc isn't secure because you're in control of it. Pay em no mind I says...

Looks like Microsoft is finally taking some responsibility.

 

They released a patch to put a stop to their destructive updates.

 

Unfortunately, the patch has to be applied manually.

 

Here's the information and download links:

 

M$ Fix Patch (KB4078130): https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4078130/update-to-disable-mitigation-against-spectre-variant-2

 

Download from Microsoft: http://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=KB4078130
