After having some issues with my NUC7i5BNH (Chrome crashing after Windows updates this past week), I found this article on BleepingComputer about microcode revisions being released through the Windows Update program.
https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/microsoft/a-bunch-of-intel-microcode-patches-have-arrived-on-t... A Bunch of Intel Microcode Patches Have Arrived on the Microsoft Update Catalog
While I see that Kabylake U/Y is listed,I am having a hard time determining the "CPUID" codes they are listing. They indicate 000806E9, but I cannot any string similar to this using regedit, CPU ID app or the Intel Processor Identification. I found the revision string via regedit, but I am not sure how else I can confirm that I own a CPU that would be positively affected by this microcode update.To be exact, i5-7260U running revision -x84.
Any info would be helpful. I thought I could get these string to compare from the 3 modes mentioned. How can I make sure that my i5-7260U has the CPUID, Revision code, etc to know that this update works for me?

Fixed Spectre for me.
And yes....I wont trust Intel with the NUC Bios again...I stay on 60.
Interesting. Yes, I updated Windows on Tuesday as well as BIOS from 61 to 62. Now, I'm getting application hangs. I'm considering if I should roll back both OS and BIOS and then apply the microcode update.
Looking in into your case we see that you are running the system with BIOS 0062 that has the update for the microcode you can verify that on the following link on the release notes.
About the applications hang, we can try to roll back the OS to verify this help to solve the situation.
I was checking your case and would like to know if you need further help. If so, please do not hesitate in replying back.
