    Ask the NSA ;) Assuming you use Win7or8 and have new hardware, wait for Simplix Update pack (Alexander isn’t rushing the new update, but he’s indicated it will come in due time). Or you can make the change to Win10

    *InSpectre tool v6 [As recommended by Intel to observe your status + able to disable Meltdown and Spectre vulnerability patches]. You need the January patch from Micro$haft Update. But most OEM's haven't pushed out useable (firmware - microcodes)yet.

    They probably don't want to ruin their stuff just so the OCD worrywarts can have warm fuzzy feelings about the false sense of security in technology that will never actually be secure... ever. We live in an insecure world, with lots of evil people that are happy to find and exploit mistakes that are only avoidable in 20/20 hindsight. Life is tough in the wild, wild west. Might as well go outside with a fly swatter on a kamikaze mission to rid the planet of flies. Ain't gonna happen.

    Perfect Computer Security Is a Myth. But It’s Still Important
