I was just curious if anyone else has had their computer suddenly experiencing a huge lag spike in their computer's operating and use. Today, once I started up my laptop, it took literal minutes to open up applications, or functions of said applications, with a loading symbol appearing for every action, at times crashing my laptop. The only difference from today and yesterday was an Windows update that was installed today.
Looking up said update, apparently there was a security flaw with some intell chips that resulted in a patch that would slow down computers. Though for Window 10 users with newer computers, the slow down would be unnoticeable, but I'm starting to doubt that claim. This all started today, and the update is the only change on my computer, which was purchased new only a few months ago, and is running Windows 10.
