The emergency update, which was rolled-out by Microsoft on Jan 4th, is designed to protect against a processor bug unearthed in Intel, AMD, and ARM chipsets.

However, the patch is rumoured to be wrecking havoc for users with AMD Athlon CPUs.

Users have flooded Microsoft’s community forums with complaints about machines no longer being able to boot-up.

According to the complaints, it appears the problems are most prevalent in AMD Athlon systems that received the update for the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, labelled KB4056892.

The latest update was delivered via Windows Update.

According to one of the complaints, after installing the new update – the PC no longer boots, and only displays the Windows logo.

  1. Whoa Boz0

    A patch for your CPU chip sets ?

    LoL WTF does the platform have to do with the CPU chipsets ?
    The CPU chipsets are specific to hard coded firmware and have nothing to do with functionality of the platform.

    Do yourself a huge favor and do not go past windows 7 which is basically a completed version of windows Vista.

    This is a poor excuse for prying into your machine whenever they please.
