    @Papusan Yeah, I found it after reading to page 14. I must be blue and pink blind like the others. :D Do I need to follow the steps to do the TPM (what does that mean?) after running the ME 11 tool? Should I actually be running the ME 12 tool? I'm out of my depth with this.

    So, I went ahead and ran the ME 11 tool. I'm pretty sure I had ME 11 and not ME 12? (Does it matter?) After my computer restarted, I ran the detection tool again and got "This system is not vulnerable. It has already been patched." Do I still need to do TPM?

    @Prema @Papusan @Thedoktor84 Just wanted to say again, thanks for this post. I updated my ME tool. I checked for the Spectre/Meltdown risk and appear to be safe. As for TPM, it appears Microsoft had a Patch Day on October 10th, 2017...otherwise, I should've received a Windows Security message. I purchased my laptop about a month and a half after that, so I think the patch was already installed (or installed when it ran Windows Updates after my first boot.)

    It would be nice to include the ME firmware version in the ME tool readme :)

    No need to even download to know the version. Simply hover over the download link. ;)
