The other day when I saw that InSpectre is now also showing BIOS update availability, I ran InSpectre in my W7, and found that there is an update available for my W7. So, today I decided to search in HP websites (I uninstalled HP Support assistant long time ago), found the correct page for my W7 but the BIOS update in that page is from 2013. Shut down. Despite my W7 being labeled as Slower by InSpectre, I was going to do the BIOS update. My guess is that Intel has released an update for the processor in my W7 but HP is not going to release it for my laptop. Bo .
