    I was one of the original beta testers, and I got a lifetime license when I was testing it on my XP desktop back in 2014. But, you are right in that there is a free version. :)

    @mantra,
    Err.. I think this may be rather off-topic in this Bork Tuesday thread, but anyhow, you don't need SecureAPlus to use voidtools' Everything, of course.

    OK, since I manually update my other machine, I happened to catch kb4056892 downloading. I'm a little freaked over the latest Intel mess with CPU vulnerabilities/patches but a cursory glance over the changelog reveals a possible patch or at the very least, an update to the kernel. Oh boy.....no time wasted hauling this one out to the unwashed, right?

    Edit: no problems with installation. Winver is 16299.192 Re-edit: To be fair, I'm not noticing any performance degradations, so far. What I do notice is a definitely different "feel" to the machine. The CPU looks good in task manager and machine multi-tasks very well. So far.

    Yes, kb4056892 didn't come to my main computer either so it was installed via the Update Catalog and installed successfully. I ran benchmark software before and after this patch, seeing as both machines have i7--the readings were very similar; not seeing a whole lot of performance reductions, not yet. There was such concern raised over Intel's latest she-bang, I almost can't believe a patch to the kernel actually installed. But the winver states 16299.192. This patch was mandatory so I wanted it done and out of the way. So far, it's a decent outcome. We shall see.

    Hmm, I guess that excludes Windows Defender and Norton Security

    Did you install it manually or via automatic update?

    I just received KB4056892 on my two Win10 1709 machines running Windows Defender but not on the one machine running Norton.

    Edit: The update failed on one machine first go but appears to have succeeded on the second try.

    Marcos has replied some hours ago in that thread.:
    I have indeed received ESET Antivirus and antispyware module 1533.3 in the meanwhile.

    PS: I didn't want to turn this thread into an ESET thread, but I thought that it might affect other AVs too. It was more of a general "heads-up".

    For Avira users:
    In order to receive the KB4056892, first you have to install the Avira v15.0.34.17* which released few minutes ago.

    *This version installs the key:
    Key="HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" Subkey="SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\
    QualityCompat" Value="cadca5fe-87d3-4b96-b7fb-a231484277cc" Type="REG_DWORD”

    Edit:
    Don’t be afraid of a ‘Meltdown’ with the new Microsoft update
