Windows 7: KB4100480 Windows kernel update for CVE-2018-1038 for Windows 7

It only went intolerably slow after I installed KB 4100480. Running System Restore put matters right. I can only guess that this old AMD equipped system did not receive or need any Meltdown fix from Microsoft. If that is the case, it's a pity that KB4100480 did not have an appropriate check coded into it. Trouble is that I am not sure and I have diminishing confidence in Microsoft to issue trustworthy updates or to provide helpful information about them.

This article seems to sum up what I was thinking:
Mad March Meltdown! Microsoft's patch for a patch for a patch may need another patch • The Register

The detection on this patch seems messed up. One reader reporting that out of 120 machines WSUS server only showing it applicable to 4!

I'm seriously considering just buying a Mac when 8.1 is EOL!

I rolled my PC back to my pre-January Updates Image.
It actually seems to run smoother.

I guess I'll have to rely on my Backup Images for security (just like my XP install & VM).

Showed up on my systems this morning. MS must have fixed the detection for this patch.

I think I am a bit late regarding the recent update by Brink here -
https://www.sevenforums.com/news/413895-kb4099950-update-windows-7-april-2-2018-a.html


and pages 3 & 4 of the below thread -
https://www.sevenforums.com/news/413507-march-13-2018-kb4088878-security-only-update-windows-7-a-3.html


I have the security only updates installed for Jan/Feb and March - none seem to be causing any problems.
It would appear that I should have installed KB4099950 prior to KB4088878?
Needless to say I am also completely confused by this matter concerning KB4100480.
Should I remove/system restore prior to the install of 4088878 then install 4099950 and follow-up with the reinstalling of 4088878?
Advice would be greatly appreciated.

If you're only using your systems in a home environment and haven't had any network issues after you installed the March update, then I wouldn't worry about the order they're installed tbh. I've only really seen reports of any issues in business or VM environments. Just keep regular system images. I think installing after the March update will be fine. If you're really concerned about it though, I would rollback to before the March update, install the network fix then reinstall the March update.

I've seen some users rollback to before the January update, but I change that many things on my PC every week, I just can't be bothered to go all the way back to January. I'll only do that as a last resort and I'm having serious PC issues.

I haven't noticed any day to day slowdowns on my PCs, and I don't pay much notice to benchmarks either. But, I've noticed some users reporting they've had noticeable performance hits over the last few months.

Hi Brds
Many thanks for your response.
I only use my PC in a home environment and I can say I too have not noticed any issues at the moment I will leave matters as they are and 'let sleeping dogs lie'.
I will just carry on installing the security updates only - after a week has passed and no big probs are found here, in the MS forums and Ask Woody.
