Slow Computer after installing Meltdown and Spectre patches

Software update and firmware patches may cause problems on older CPUs

The slow down reaches from barely noticeable to severe. This all depends on the computer operating  system and the CPU chip set as as well the version and type of the processor.
As a rule of thumb it is not recommended to download and install the computer updates and firmware patches manually for obvious reasons. Once your PC has auto updated you will notice effects on newer Windows 10 systems only when when running heavy usage application stressing the system. If you have the  Skylake chip set on Windows 10 you should be fine. Slow down will be noticeable on 2015 and older Windows 10 computers.
Older Windows 7 and Windows 8 will be affected the most.

If in doubt your local Computer Repair and Service Shop they will know what options are best for you.
