  • Turning the ratchet up to MS-DEFCON 2

    I’ll have full instructions on Monday, but most of you know the drill.

    I’m changing it now because I suddenly realized that some of you may be running Win10 1709 and clicking on “Check for updates.” (Thx, JL!)

    If you did get pushed onto 1803, real quick, roll back to 1709 — Start > Settings > Update & security, on the left choose Recovery, on the right click to Roll back to previous version.

    We’re at MS-DEFCON 2: Patch reliability is unclear. Unless you have an immediate, pressing need to install a specific patch, don’t do it.
