Microsoft announced that it will be expanding its Meltdown mitigation solutions to x86 version of both the legacy Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 operating systems.

The release date for so-called Spring Creators Update was revealed in a new blog post, which provided an overview of Microsoft's plans with Windows 10. With this latest round of updates, all of Microsoft's [currently supported] operating systems are hardened against any known Meltdown threats.

The next update is expected to have a number of new features, including the long-delayed Timeline, HDR support, and improved DPI support. After analyzing the available data, we're lifting the AV compatibility check for the March 2018 Windows security updates for supported Windows 10 devices through Windows Update. The company has fixed an issue where Internet Explorer may not respond to the operations when Browser Helper Object is installed. But Microsoft's step-by-step approach to increasing support for Spectre and Meltdown patches also means that you can probably expect support for more of Intel's processors, as well as 64-bit versions of Windows 7/8.1, within the coming weeks.

Of course, you should get this update automatically via Windows Update in the next couple of days, but if you like to stay o top of things, head to Settings Update & Security Windows Update and check for updates.

More Windows 10 users will benefit from the fixes, too, because many of those previously blocked from installing Windows security updates due to potential compatibility issues with some antivirus apps (identified earlier this year) will now be able to go ahead with patching. Once done, select a 32 or 64-bit download. The other changes include fixes for the aforementioned bugs in Internet Explorer.

Specifically, those running Windows 7 (Service Pack 1) and Windows 8.1 will now be able to install Microsoft's fix for the flaws on the software front. Also, make sure to check out our Windows 10 Forums for more discussions on all things Microsoft and troubleshooting advice.
