Intel debugs security update forcing PCs to reboot

Microsoft has been able to successfully debug a software update which caused computers to reboot.

Intel had to sort out the security error which threatened to wreck havoc with millions of user's processors worldwide.

They advised people not to download the update for Windows 7, 8.1 and 10.

In a warning statement, Microsoft said: "Our own experience is that system instability can in some circumstances cause data loss or corruption."

So far this month, two incidents similar to this have happened.

Two security bugs called Meltdown and Spectre were made known to the public.

Just last week, Intel told customers not to install a security update, and reassured customers they were "making progress toward identifying the root cause".
