you have to reboot between enabling and disable it threw inspectre last i checked
Yep, you need to reboot after toggling/enabling.
Thanks guys. After turning my PC off overnight and back on this morning, I found that inSpectre now tells me I have protection against Meltdown and Spectre flaws. Normally, you get told when you have to restart your PC for things to get enabled but I guess the coders of inSpectre didn't bother with that.
So if you disable the Spectre protection then does performance return to how it was before I installed the microcode update? In other words, do you only lose a small amount of performance by enabling the protection or is the performance already lost by installing the microcode update itself?
It should not.
