The anti-virus compatibility check was added in January for Windows 10 users as part of Microsoft's response to the Meltdown and Spectre attack methods.

As usual, you can use this SDK in parallel with other Windows 10 SDKs.

"Microsoft is aware that this notification was incorrectly delivered to some Windows 10 Version 1703 devices that had a user-defined feature update deferral period configured".

Microsoft announced that it will be expanding its Meltdown mitigation solutions to x86 version of both the legacy Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 operating systems.

Due to issues with old AV software, Microsoft previously blocked these security updates for some users. Restarting Windows Mixed Reality should resolve both issues. We have made the start process lighter and faster, which will provide our users with a better experience when accessing Microsoft Edge in Windows Defender Application Guard.


In addition, Microsoft has expanded its catalog of Intel-validated microcode updates for Spectre and Meltdown.

That more than likely name tells us a lot about Microsoft's intent with this OS version, namely that it aims to further appease the creative professional audience, as the Fall Creators Update and Creators Update have before it.

Typically, original equipment manufacturers first test these microcode updates before making them publicly available.

Microsoft's approved microcode releases don't arrive automatically via Windows Update. Microsoft recommends users to install the updates as soon as possible since this update comes with importance fixes required for improving your system's performance.

"We will continue to broaden the number of Intel microcode updates available via the catalog as they become available to Microsoft from Intel", writes John Cable, Microsoft's Director of Program Management for Windows Servicing and Delivery.
