MS is now actively blocking updates when it detects:
- Intel seventh (7th)-generation processors or later
- AMD “Bristol Ridge” or later
- Qualcomm “8996″ or later
When you try to scan or download updates through Windows Update, you receive the following error message:
Your PC uses a processor that isn’t supported on this version of Windows and you won’t receive updates.
Additionally, you may see an error message on the Windows Update window that resembles the following:
Windows could not search for new updates
An error occurred while checking for new updates for your computer.
Code 80240037 Windows Update encountered an unknown error.
MS doing everything in their bag of shitty tricks to stop people from using W7/8/8.1
