Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB4013429)

I agree overall but according to BBC reports Microsoft issued an emergency security patch after Google Research identified a risk of malware infection without the user even having to open a file.

Apparently simply having Windows Defender examine the file in Real Time Protection would be enough for the malware to be executed.

This patch fixed that so is probably justified in this case :)

Indeed it was a major security risk and was patched very quickly. Okay I'm not a gamer but I know which I'd prefer. Mind you the machines at home hardly seemed to slow down while the patch was loading.

Ohh OK, i will let them off this time then... 

Probably noticeable because the machine was fairly maxed out at the time.

Could well be, either that or you need a new machine Mike (fx: ducks and runs) :)

Yeah, it has been making some creaking noises recently.. LOL

I am now seriously thinking that the 8Gb of RAM might need upping to 16Gb, as even my video card now has 6Gb VRAM.

In this warm weather we have been enjoying lately, i disconnected the pc base unit the other evening and took it into the back garden to set about it with a can of compressed air and a hoover...Yikes these things gather dust !!

I use 16Gb as a standard these days, helps things flow!

Yep I have a mains powered air blaster which works wonders every 6 months!
