Hi, i want to live with my bugs and unsecure to the world. There are plenty of reasons for me to live with these 20 year old bugs but mainly my 3dsmax software uses hybird rendering motor which uses cpu and gpu together at %100 all the time while working. this is just my desicion. my workstation is not conected to internet and has eset internet security installed with windows defender, smartscreen and uac enabled. i only connect to it internet for windows updates and eset updates. so i will be fine. i was fine for 20 years. and this is my choice. I just need to know which updates are fixing those bugs and drops my computer's performance. -Is it bios update? -Is it windows update KBs? -Is it something like INF Utility Chipset Update? If it is bios, i don't need to do anything but if it is another thing. i can block them or uninstall them when installed. I need it for windows xp-7-8-8.1-10 all of them. I need to know every single update or method's name to block them. please help. I can't upgrade my hardware and i don't see the point because. They need to fix their architecture not only software and release new cpu and gpu's... so i will be here untill new correct hardware is out. and i want to be at my max performance. SOLVED: thanks to all helpers. IF YOU DON'T WANT PERFORMANCE DROPS. and be unsafe like me. 1) GPU's are safe to update. CPU's are not. SO don't update cpu. but you can update gpu. 2) Do not update bios, or do not use new chipset update inf utilities 3) If you want to use windows update first apply these 2 commands reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management" /v FeatureSettingsOverride /t REG_DWORD /d 3 /f reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management" /v FeatureSettingsOverrideMask /t REG_DWORD /d 3 /f after you can update. and you won't be losing performance drops 4*) intel microcodes seems to fix bugs but i am not sure about performance drops so stay safe and dont use them if you are not sure. thats all. use the latest chipsets and bios update right before the bug fixes if you DONT WANT performance drops. you can use nvidia amd driver updates or windows update there wont be any drops. these are going to prevent performance drops. BUT YOU WİLL BE UNSAFE.
