I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello everyone, in 2013 I purchased the Lenovo Ideapad N581 and I am running the newest version of Windows 10 with an SSD. The speed is incredible and I want to keep this laptop for as long as possible.  But with the recent meltdown and spectre debacle, I don't know if I am safe. I heard that I have to update the Bios, but there is no support for Win10. What do I have to do to protect myself? Do I have to buya new laptop? Is an update of windows really enough?

Hello people- I just heard about the security flaw out there called Spectre or meltdown-- My problem is this-- I am working on an older computer running Windows VISTA- yes you heard right-- My computer has never given me ANY problems- and I stand by the old motto- if it aint broke dont fix it. My memory has 8 GB and it is an HP-Intel core 2 quad cpu 2.33 GHZ- service pack 2 windows vista home premium.
Because I am running Vista- I can no longer get chrome updates- and thus when I try to do the software patch for this new problem- That strict isolation site - is not there and thus I cannot enable it- do you really think this is a problem- or not?? Please advise
P.S. My passwords are extremely strong for all of my important sites-if that matters?

Hi All

I'm sure you've all been following the news of Meltdown/Spectre.

I'm a (very satisfied) AppGuard user and was wondering if AppGuard can or does help with the issues we are facing with Meltdown/Spectre?

I know you need to install OS patches, firmware updates etc etc but in my case my PC is over 5yrs old and I highly doubt there will be any firmware/BIOS updates so can/will AppGuard help at all protect from these threats?
 

A:AppGuard + Spectre/Meltdown

As long as nothing with a code that tries to exploit meltdown/spectre runs on your system then you are protected. So if appguard or any anti exe, anti malware, antivius, srp, god himself stops the payload you are ptotected and if not you are not protected. Not going to go into details when it stops and when it doesn't because as a user you should already know that.

Is there a patch available yet?Meltdown and SpectreBugs in modern computers leak passwords and sensitive data. Meltdown and Spectre exploit critical vulnerabilities in modern processors. These hardware bugs allow programs to steal data which is currently processed on the computer. While programs are typically not permitted to read data from other programs, a malicious program can exploit Meltdown and Spectre to get hold of secrets stored in the memory of other running programs. This might include your passwords stored in a password manager or browser, your personal photos, emails, instant messages and even business-critical documents.Meltdown and Spectre work on personal computers, mobile devices, and in the cloud. Depending on the cloud provider's infrastructure, it might be possible to steal data from other customers.

Concerning CVE-2017-5753, CVE-2017-5715 (Specter), and CVE-2017-5754 (Meltdown), Microsoft have provided patches for Windows Server OS's as per the following link.
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4072698
Thanks Microsoft!
Unforutnately, what is not clear is - does this have to be installed and activated on the Hyper-V host AND all guests, or just the Hyper-V host or just the Hyper-V guests?
We are running 700+ VM's across approximately 30 Hyper-V 2012 R2 hosts.  If it's only necessary to update the hosts, that would be less work for us - and we can do it without downtime for the guests.

I can't apply Microsoft updates to address the Meltdown/Spectre vulnerabilities until there is an update to the BIOS software from Lenovo. I have reviewed the support page that lists models targeted for updates, and I don't see mine listed: https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/len-18282 This is my main personal laptop, which I use for a lot of important tasks. If I can't apply this critical security update then it's worthless to me.

I have noticed since I updated my system because of the Spectre and Meltdown bug that my SSD's are not getting the same speeds as they were. I downloaded AS SSD benchmark previously and had checked my SSD's and they normally had run at around 450 mbps and 550 mbps. I have 3 SSD's in my system and of course have them all set to AHCI in the BIOS. I downloaded and flashed the new BIOS from Gigabyte's page. The bios version is named F23f (Update Intel ME for security vulnerabilities). Also downloaded and installed the new Chipset driver with the info on the side that says:Intel Management Engine Interface
(Note) Please update the latest BIOS for ME Firmware before installing this driver.
Update Intel ME for security vulnerabilities
Installed the new patch from Microsoft to Windows 10 1709 version KB4054517. I now have been experiencing slower SSD speeds especially for the "Write" speeds. "Read" speeds seem to be the same, if not slightly slower. Is anyone else noticing this? Thanks.

I have been going crazy as I am sure others have been trying to get my computer patched.  I ran Powershell commnds to see if I am ok.  I found out it is incomplete without a patch from Lenovo.  It would be a mistake to not issue a patch as this would seem to be a betrayal of trust for those of us who bought Lenovo products. Please issue. Here is an explanation. The image means that your system received patches for the Meltdown bug, but has received incomplete patches for the Spectre bug.This was to be expected, as Google said yesterday that Spectre is harder to exploit, but also harder to patch.What the red text means is that you need additional chipset firmware updates. Microsoft and Google say that OEMs will need to provide users with these additional firmware updates to complete the Windows OS-level Spectre patches. Depending on your computer's age, some OEM might not make these firmware updates available, meaning you'll be stuck with an incomplete Spectre patch.If your laptop/desktop/server vendor has provided extra chipset firmware updates, you can get them from their official sites, install them, and complete the patch.
