I had a hunch

When this Meltdown madness started in January, I stopped updating my Win7 boxes. I continued in February and March after reading that Microsoft issues patch to patch the patches I had not installed.

I resumed only in April but not the cumulative patchball but only the "Security Only Update". And I still think that I was lucky.
