    Sure they are, but the patch in the OP simply installs the latest MS approved microcode update to the OS and loads it on boot, ignoring the one in the BIOS.
    If we would make a new BIOS every time Intel publishes a 'new fix' we would have to redo it for the 4th time now...
    Again testing yet another 'Spectre fix' code in the internal PremaMod's for the past week now.

    Sager said "Manufacture just release new version BIOS 1.05.12 for this model" I updated to new bios... It came with spectre protection already... Now after flashing my inspectre tool says protected for both...I ran bench marks and compared to last bios, I am better on temps and faster..

    Im on win 10 pro 1803 17133.1 and my OC settings changed in bios to higher than I had them set lol So weird, I had it set to 44 but now they are set to 45 lol

    Am I protected forever or will there be more updates for Spectre and Meltdown? The intel tool says Im protected as well.

    Na, that's from end of February and only includes the second patch from January.
    Watch out for Intel/MS releasing the new patch with the next OS patch update...

    My Only concern is that when I had updated with the WU microcode... It changed my bios so that I could not OC from it any longer :oops:and really ... what is the point then... I only got this lappy for its SPEED and diversity...

    Then I had to uninstall is and reset my bios settings:confused:... to get back to normal OC.

    Hi, thanks for this tool.

    I'm having some trouble using it. I've updated my ME driver and ran your tool, but I'm still getting that my machine is vulnerable. I noticed the ME version reported by the Intel tool doesn't match my actual driver version. What am I doing wrong?? :mad:

    ME driver revision doesn't equal the firmware, that's normal.

    Not sure what you did, but it didn't flash the ME. First section of the OP is for the ME patch, second one for the TPM.

    In case you ran the ME Tool and it didn't update, check the error.log file that was created for the reason.

    It looks like I ran the TPM updater without running the ME updater. I saw your post before you edited it, and just ran the ME updater. Looks good now? Thanks so much! :cool:
