        Microsoft’s latest confession:

        That Lenovo did not “… use officially supported mechanisms.”?

        When Lenovo Vantage software runs, some versions may try to access PCI device configuration space in an unsupported manner.

        Stop error on Lenovo ThinkPad that has KB4568831 or a later update and Enhanced Windows Biometric Security enabled in UEFI

        I bought a new Lenovo Flex 5 (WinX v73.2 Home) earlier this summer. I shut updates off. I am not experiencing blue screens. I am enjoying a relatively uninterrupted computing experience.

        Keep the mask; Lose the updates (until you are ready).

        With a Lenovo Legion 540, I experienced no such problems. Maybe it depends on which models of Lenovo you use?

        To be fair to Microsoft, should they be expected to test all their updates against every system out there which “may try to access PCI device configuration space in an unsupported manner”, or do something else which is similarly unsupported and out of bounds?

        Apparently it’s not always their fault.

        Yes, it is.

        Microsoft should test and approve every single software for Windows, just like Apple does with Apple Apps Store.
        Of course the OS should block any software that “may try to access PCI device configuration space in an unsupported manner” .

        That’s not so much testing programs you can install on your computer as it is limiting what you can install. It’s not so much “Apple tests” as it is “Apple permits if…”

        My Mac absolutely refused to install GIMP for example. Win 10 allowed it with no problems. Mac vs. PC is a tradeoff.

        Microsoft, like Google’s Android, allow any trash (GIMP not included) to be installed.

        And Mac (I’ve used both) sometimes blocks legitimate programs. Like I said, tradeoff

        A blocked app can’t harm your PC.
