I have an AMD Athlon II running Windows 7. The other day Windows Update tried to install KB4056892. After restarting, the system failed to boot because of the update. That is because the update itself is bad for my system. You can read about it here. It gets worse: Microsoft’s Spectre-fixer wrecks some AMD PCs Some sort of recovery process took over after the failed boot and eventually applied a restore point. I was able to recover. I blocked KB4056892 from showing. I have had Windows Update automatic updates off, so I decide when to apply them. Now I notice from my shut down button, that some kind of update is goring to be completed. I'm afraid it's going to be another attempt at this bad update. I'm afraid to restart my computer. What should I do?
