Microsoft security essentials trouble updating
Windows 10 offers a wide range of built-in screen capture options.
You can save the full screen, the active window, or a rectangular selection to a file or to the Clipboard for reuse in another app. Microsoft makes the installation files for Windows 10 available from a variety of sources.
We published a workaround to regain access to affected devices (by removing the update using the repair console).
The company notes: The investigation revealed that affected AMD chipsets did not "conform to the documentation previously provided to Microsoft to develop the Windows operating system mitigations to protect against the chipset vulnerabilities known as Spectre and Meltdown".
Microsoft halted update delivery for affected AMD processors as a consequence to work with AMD on a patch for affected devices that resolves the issue without putting devices in the boot loop.
Incompatible products may cause blue screen errors on patched systems, and Microsoft paused update delivery for systems with incompatible antivirus solutions.
Windows PCs with affected AMD processors will remain unpatched until Microsoft releases a working patch for these devices.
