Windows 7 Ultimate x64

It never stops surprising me how bad Windows updates had become since the introduction of Windows 10 (although a bit unrelated this time). Reading the article it becomes evident that the original intention of MS was to play dirty with antivirus developers in order to "fix" their programs supposedly coliding with the meltdown/spectre fixes. And while it's mostly true that AVs are among the worst quality software out there, bullying them isn't really the way to go.

Then the obvious becomes evident, unnoticed until this article. If you don't even have an antivirus, no antivirus can ever set the required registry key to comply with MS threats, adding insult to the injury. If someone decided to stay safe by not installing an antivirus, not they're forced! Instead of relying on OS level security updates, that are a much better way.

Of course, nobody needs to compromise his security by installing an antivirus. One can just set the registry key manually and continue having updates. But why the hassle? Really?

Windows 7 SP1 Home Premium 64bit [x64]

Microsoft seemed to have lifted the "blocking" of updates for Win7 & 8.1 on April patch Tuesday.

Linux Mint 18.2 xfce 64-bit (VMWare host) / Windows 8.1 Pro 32-bit (VMWare guest)

I did a clean install of Windows 7 Pro this morning, and I successfully downloaded and installed all Windows updates which were listed the first time I scanned for updates. I didn't install any antivirus program, but it's possible that Windows Defender was running.

Problems so big this software should not be used on enterprises level, I think we all understand why big business won’t upgrade there os they know what microsoft is doing,
Look all government ask why they not useing windows 10
Not because bugs because so heavy coded with back doors
But microsoft needs not worry I do know how Stop u all and talk for hr with top people at business that makes hardware software to stop u they ask why I do this for free I told them microsoft hack wrong network and they declare war with me
And I will do what ever takes to stop them why because they work openly with our government

Windows 7/8.1/10 multiboot

A little math shows that would be over 55 clean installs per work day. With the time it would take to clean install Windows, install all drivers, and install all Windows updates on 55 computers a day, every day, week in and week out, for half a career, it's no wonder why you're so angry.

Personally, I would have saved time by using imaging utilities.
