Well then three people from the windows support have told me no, they have contacted several times to confirm and all have agreed that I have the update.

Same problem here missing the update and reg key:
Key="HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE"Subkey="SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\QualityCompat"
Value Name="cadca5fe-87d3-4b96-b7fb-a231484277cc"
Type="REG_DWORD”
Data="0x00000000”

Avast free antivirus program version number: 17.9.2322 (build 17.9.3761.0), version of virus identifiers: 180105-0

How to get the patches?

I just discovered why some of us may not be getting the patch via MS Update even if we've verified that we have the required registry key.  I downloaded from the Intel web site their SA-00086 chip tester that they developed specifically to determine if a user's processor is vulnerable. I've attached the report for my Dell PC, which is approximately 5 yrs old.  Surprise:  I'm supposedly not vulnerable!!  Perhaps there's something my my registry that enables MS to detect that and determine that I don't need a patch.  You can download the tool directly from Intel at: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/27150?v=t   The page that provides documentation is:

You are vulnerable. Do not conflate the IME-bug with this issue.

Caus i have no QualityCompat" at all (cant find it)... is it normal?

i have the registry setting but did not receive the update from MS... decided to download it manually from the catalog and discovered there are actually TWO updates.. one of them (KB4058702) updates the updating system itself and should be installed before the other - Servicing stack update for Windows 10 Version 1709: January 3, 2018

https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=1709%202018%20x64%2010

i'm currently installing  2018-01 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1709 for x64-based Systems (KB4056892)
will come back and edit this after it finishes correctly

edit: back after reboot, no BSODs so far and avast is running, even ran a smart scan :)
