    Any changes of this update will be a part of the next cumulative update in any case.

    Oh I went ahead and installed it from the Microsoft Update Catalog. No sense in waiting. On the downside, no microcode updates for my Kaby Lake included. :(

    I wonder whether to update this utility to modern state of PowerShell script or just leave gurus with InSpectre...

    I personally would prefer an update by you, I just prefer having the utilities on my PC created by the same author/collaborators. Less chance of utilities conflicting, authors I trust, same sites for keeping updated etc. Plus you've shown yourself to be more knowledgeable than 99.9% of other authors. Ultimately it's up to you and regardless of whether you update it or not I thought I should stop lurking and just thank you. Thanks for all the thankless work, saved me many a time with your posts.

    Literally helped me fix a windows insider bug that's been plaguing me for months, no matter how many clean installs I did the system always registered me as having all of the mitigations enabled + the microcode updates applied so I've been unable to update some rather important microcode versions for my chip for entirely too long. It actually stressed me out to the point I was about to just purchase and build a whole new machine. Ran your utility and it verified to windows what I've been struggling with for months and windows finally recognized that I had the mitigations disabled and that there was no microcode updates on my system. Enabled and downloaded, you literally saved me from spending at least a grand and half that I don't have.

    Sorry it took so long to get back to you, you're literally my hero at this point. Is there anywhere I can donate or do something more substantial to thank you beyond just blathering and praising you.

    stupid question: if I remove those values, what will be loaded at startup?

    Some default state.
    Remove values, reboot and launch utility again - you will see.

    @mbk1969 can you add a way to disable Import Optimizations, i forget the exact hex to do this and i need to test without it off to check for an issue im experiencing with an alcohol virtual drive.

    nvm, reran the alcohol installer and it "unblocked" the driver, ie, turned off kernel import optimizations.

    I can add an edit control with the button so the user can enter needed value and click the button to save that value into registry.
