Please read the page carefully and use on own risk, many anti-virus programs report it as malware.

Also, it is possible to update the CPU microcode under Windows with VMWare microcode update driver.
https://labs.vmware.com/flings/vmwar...-update-driver
Instructions are provided on the page.
Unfortunately, for old systems like mine (Sandy Bridge), there is still no microcode update from Intel.

My plan is to keep my system protected in default state and disable protections when flying.
Is that possible? to disable the protections? I thought after the patch there was no turning back-

Meltdown protection can be disabled by uninstalling the update or with registry settings (the method of this tool). Of course you will need restart after every change.
About Spectre, I'm not sure how it will be with bios update, but you can check.
