This, can lead to events such as program failing to run, system freezing, system start up problem, and system shut down problems. Make sure that you have the latest drivers installed for your Windows machine.

Also, I would suggest you to install all the available Windows Updates including the optional updates for drivers.

Yesterday was the April 2017 Patch Day, and it marked the end not only of Windows Vista support, but also of the Security Bulletins system.

It was also the month where Microsoft's blocking of updates on devices running 7th generation silicon on Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 is up in full swing.

If a device with Windows 7 or 8.1 is upgraded with a new processor, it will no longer be able to download and install some of the latest and most important software updates offered by Microsoft.

Instead of the normal download screen, users are confronted with an error message warning that, "Your PC uses a processor that isn’t supported on this version of Windows.”An error message could also appear in the Windows Update window, warning users that their device has encountered, “an unknown error”.The two buttons – ‘Try Again’ and ‘Cancel’ offered, seem of little or no use.Although it is difficult to determine the exact cause of the problem, experts suggest the code shows up commonly due to corrupted or damaged registry files, malware or spyware infection, old or outdated Windows driver, file system corruption and most importantly ‘Unfinished installation of Windows / improper maintenance cause.The way to go about this is Upgrade your Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 to Windows 10.Ensure that it is activated and then if you wish, clean install Windows 10 on the same device.This includes most devices available for purchase today by consumers or enterprises and includes generations of silicon such as AMD’s Carrizo and Intel’s Broadwell and Haswell silicon generations. Not only is Microsoft blocking a 6th generation PC (temporary or not), it also highlights that the update blocking patches are included in the security-only update as well.
