    They are both off now it worked. I turned them both back on at least for now because i did not notice a performance change.

    No problem. I think that Disk Cleanup use this command as well, but there is some delay before it is being used by it (maybe 3-4 weeks or so) and that's why I am using it manually instead of waiting to appear in Disk Cleanup. I also tested the issue from the links (regarding the BSOD when printing) and didn't have a problem, but I have an Image before applying the updates, so I can restore the system without using system restore or uninstalling the update manually (and this is not possible after the above command anyway). :)

    You can try to shut down the protection manually using these commands:

    Code:
    reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management" /v FeatureSettingsOverride /t REG_DWORD /d 3 /f
    
    reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management" /v FeatureSettingsOverrideMask /t REG_DWORD /d 3 /f
    or check this article:

    I turned them off again and the mouse seems to work better. When i click on a shortcut or a link it works the first time more than it did before with meltdown and spectre protected.

    KB5000802 re-installed itself this morning on the machine I removed it from yesterday.
    So all must be well now in win update land :D

    YES, as so many people noticed,
    The major achievement of the most recent Windows OS update is that BLUE screen while trying to print, but...
    I have some OTHER ISSUES that makes me and my coworkers scream and curse those recent Windows updates.
    It's that SUPER SENSITIVITY with ANYTHING about the computer.

    Examples:

    I click to create just ONE NEW FOLDER, but the computer creates MINIMUM 3 new folders!
    I click to close just one email, the computer closes my OUTLOOK.
    It's almost impossible to push the FILE button on Excel. It take minimum 5 times and EXTRA FINESSE to click on FILE and get other procedures.
    The same thing with MS Access.
    I can go and go, but the most important thing is that
    ONCE UPON A TIME, we, the people working in the office, had NO THAT KIND OF ISSUES with Windows!

    P.S. I know the "working-from-home" MS engineers NEED to PROVE how hard they work at home, but, PLEASE, don't screw up what we have.

    Is this repeatable on multiple machines? Are you positive you don't have a mouse issue? I had a PC recently that would tell me I was entering the wrong PIN at bootup (without touching anything) and found it to be a keyboard issue.

    I don't believe they have pulled it and since they have posted a "workaround" for the issue I assume they aren't going to pull it.

    Would the fix work if you don't uninstall the bad update.

    Couldn't say from experience. I haven't had any actual issues in the first place. This update has been installed on a dozen PCs without issue for me. Sure doesn't mean others will have the same luck.

    I got feedback from one occasion where that fix solved a problem. You can also wait for a while since MS announced update that will solve the problem in coming week.

    That is what I am doing. Too much of a hassle for an Enterprise environment.

    It's on several computers, but I'll try to replace the mouse.

    Was anyone personally affected by the bluescreens, I wonder? I just installed the renewed KB5000842 a little while ago but it's not really applicable on here. At any rate, it's out of the way, and hopefully it actually fixes this pretty grim issue for those w/certain makes of printers.

    I did not install the original update but did install today's fixed CU, KB5001567. It took about 15 min. on an SSD, about 5 min. longer than a typical CU. Restarted computer, no problems observed. (I don't have a printer but regularly use the "print to pdf" feature, so I decided to play it safe by waiting for the fixed update.)

    Of course, it couldn't go 100% smoothly. When I unpaused updates, it forcibly downloaded a February-dated .NET preview over my metered connection and restarted the computer, causing the Settings app to crash along the way. After the restart it seems to be OK.
