I wish I could say that it boggles my mind that they could be so hushmouthed on the subject of a vulnerability this severe.Of course, my OEM (Lenovo) has not released an update for my Windows laptop (Yoga 900) since 2016, and as of today their support page  on Meltdown/Spectre does not indicate that they plan to do so. Unless I was regularly doing video transcoding or heavy CAD work, it's more than fast enough.First, open the Registry Editor by typing in Regedit in the Cortana search bar and agreeing to the UAC dialog box (or use the Windows key R key method).Click the sign next to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER, then click on Software à Microsoft à Internet Explorer.It's worth noting that Windows Update may also fail to apply the Meltdown/Spectre patch if other conditions aren't met.Some are mentioned on the KB page  but they don't mention another common scenario, which is that if your system firmware is not ready to accept the update, Windows Update will not apply it, and _it won't tell you_ that it's not applying it -- it will simply say ' Your device is up to date'.
First, open notepad and type in the following syntax: Save the text tile to your computer then right click on it and rename it with a extension.
When you open the file, it will look like this: The first line "Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00" tells the OS that this file is a registry file.
The second portion is the configuration details, which tell the OS what to add and change in the registry.
When you uninstall a program, there are chances that some registry settings don't get deleted.
To completely uninstall the program, you will need to delete the program's entry from the registry.
