    So basically, this thread is essentially null and void FOR NOW, BECAUSE Intel pulled the microcode that you had linked us to and is the latest posted version is unpatched. Correct? Maybe you could help other users out by editing the OP with a warning and explanation and save us some trouble, because again, according to the process you'd posted and with the links provided, the microcode file isn't the same as what you'd obtained. I'd seen other replies in other threads where users had posted their patched R5E.CAP file. I'm not willing to try it, unless it's from users that that I know that typically post these working files.

    Personally, Im not changing anything. my Machines have been this way for a decade or more and I dont have my zipper down with my junk hanging out and waving. To get to my stuff one would have to get past two firewalls for starters then all they would get is inheriting my kids college tuition payments. I dont save things like credit card info, thats just stupidity in the first place. Im not a multi billion $$ financial institution that wouild make it worth the effort to even try. IMO this is all getting blown out of proportion.

    Thank you for updating the OP.

    I'd just read that Microsoft had released a patch that was supposedly conflicting with Intel's patch. Then again, I did see this off of Yahoo!, so take it with a grain of salt, unless you know better. I'm just relaying information. I'm a little confused as to how Microsoft can patch Spectre, anyways when from what I'd read, it needs to be patched at the BIOS level.

    I am curious why Asus has not step upped to assist with this patch, since it is at the bios level?

    Because microcodes are buggy. ASUS is not stupid.

    It's always blown out of proportion. "This isn't what I paid for, this is broken/buggy ****! ASUS Pay Attention And Fix My Stuff Right Now!"

    Intel AVX Offset bug - ASUS fix it Right Now!
    Intel HyperThreading bug - ASUS fix it Right Now!
    Intel IME vulnerability bug - ASUS fix it Right Now!
    SPECTRE/MELTDOWN - ASUS fix it Right Now!

    I think it's part media scare - "SPECTRE" and "MELTDOWN", lol scary names which suggest ghostly intruders sifting through your ever-so-precious personal data and evil criminals writing programs which will nuke your hardware. Could've as easily named them "Speculative Execution Exploit" and "Virtual Execution Exploit".

    And it's part entitlement. "I spent top-dollar paying the best to buy to the best, it had better work or they had better fix it (Right Now)!"

    And it's part rush-rush-rush. It's what happens when Intel rams multiple Skylake/Kabylake/Coffeelake families out the door, 5th Gen in 2014 to 8th Gen (soon 9th Gen) in 2018 ... abandoning their tried-and-true tick/tock cycles and constantly moving forward without even bothering to address the growing pile (now half a decade!) of known but unresolved errata. With all the big mobo makers (including ASUS) struggling to keep on top of every new chipset and processor release - along with their own growing piles of known but unresolved errata, just patching things ad-hoc when needed to keep ahead on the newest products, very little time to spare towards fixing all the "old stuff".

    I am reminded of the old GPU races during ~5 years of 28nm TSMC ... an endless stream of "new" products with only trivial performance increases over half a decade, always pushing the latest-and-greatest stuff out the door and always leaving last-season's "legacy" stuff buried under problems. ASUS had some good moments and some bad moments but consistently fared somewhat poorly overall ... just like MSI, EVGA, ASRock, Gigabyte, and all the others.

    Oddly enough, I tried this awhile ago when you first announced it and the whole routine worked fine. This time, however I get a bunch of errors. I've disabled anti-virus and I keep getting a lot of Access Denied messages. Any idea what's going on?

    No, sorry. I followed the guide (again) using the links provided and the process went perfectly smoothly. There were no errors of any kind. Can you retry on another folder, or even better, another PC?
