    Got that pushed as well (Ryzen 5).

    Uninstalled and then ran wushowhide to prevent it from downloading. Its own description says it's recommended for a number of Intel CPUs only.

    Luckily didn't make the system unbootable in between...

    This update seems not to affect me hence left it alone

    The best guess anyone has is that MS is doing it on the off chance that an AMD user will switch to Intel and by installing this update on AMD based systems, the user will be "protected" when they switch to Intel.

    In my case, there was a performance issue that appeared after this "update" was installed. Removing the "update" corrected the performance issue.

    You mean people would just put in an Intel mobo, all else the same, and expect the system to boot right away and no further issues?? I don't think it's that simple but maybe next millennium we will be there switching platforms on-the-fly!?

    I would have uninstalled it but "smart" Update would reload it the next day

    Actually, I switched from Intel to AMD. All I did was remove the Intel drivers, shut the system down, swapped parts, booted up and installed the AMD drivers. Only problem I had was Windows activation. I had a retail Win8 Pro key that was used to upgrade to Win10, so I called MS and pitched a fit until they finally gave me a new key to re-activate Windows. I've been on the same Win10 install for the last 2+ years. Started on a Skylake 6600K and have been running a Ryzen 1600 for the last year with no issues until this "update".

    To block updates, use wushowhide

    For future reference, you could just delete the activation from your MS Account, and that would have freed up the key to activate with.
