I believe the legal counter to this which is slowly starting to emerge is 'We're not ordering you to divulge your password. We're ordering you to decrypt the drive. We quite specifically don't want, or need, your password, nor do we care if the drive is encrypted with a passphrase, biometrics, physical token, whatever. We're just ordering you to decrypt it.'
Much like your 'papers' are immune to unreasonable search and seizure, but are subject to reasonable search and seizure, i.e. with a duly sworn out warrant and all that, so are your digital papers. I think this is the correct result.
I believe that, if the cops find a file in a locked file cabinet, said file being labelled 'Plans to murder my wife' and full of, well, plans to murder your wife, you don't get to have them declared inadmissible under the fifth; you get to refuse to answer questions like 'did you create these plans' and 'did you carry out these plans.' Seems to me that a directory full of documents, said directory being labelled 'plans to kill my wife' would be treated the same.
And part of the modern tribalism problems are because Europeans drew some lines on a map and said 'This is now a country, surely you two tribes that have been in conflict for countless years can now just get along, yeah?'
Note that Europeans have done this to themselves; WW2 was a direct result of this sort of crap after WW1.
A few years back, I wrote a letter to a teacher who was teaching my daughter's public school class, I want to say around grade six, the whole Columbus fairy tale.
It was a lovely letter, full of references to Washington Irvine, Ancient Greek origins of geometry 'literally, earth measurement' and experiments demonstrating the globular nature of the Earth, and surprisingly accurate diameter calculations, the Catholic Church fully supporting and backing Columbus's journey, the whole nine yards.
I got back a terse reply that this was the curriculum, so shut it.
Did I mention that I live in Canada?
In places with good public transportation (e.g., Europe), you don't need to drive - you can get around pretty damn effectively with just public transportation.
Americans seem to think that. True if you are in a big city like Berlin or Paris... Anything else... not so much.

It now switches to the processes tab, and all services associated with that svchost.exe will be highlighted. You can bet that "wuasrv.exe" (Windows Update Service) will be amongst the ones selected.
Another way to see whether it's Windows Update, is go to the services control panel and stop the Windows Update service. If the CPU usage goes to normal, your Windows Update is messed up. I have given up trying to fix it, and just set the Windows Update service to "disabled" now.
My main OS is Linux any way, so for the really occasional use of Windows, I can live with an unpatched version. This is -of course- unacceptable for people who use it as a main OS.
So how is Big Vax managing to hide all of the kids running around in polio braces? The walls full of iron lungs? All of the kids rendered sterile by mumps? All of the horrible pox scarring?
Measles, mumps, rubella, chicken pox, none of these are 'benign.' They're much more survivable, nowadays, due to much better palliative care, but it's also like saying that compound fractures or traumatic intestinal rupturing are 'benign' nowadays because they're not the instant death sentences they were a hundred years ago.

Often the generic stuff works just fine. In the case of Ryzen on 7 (or XP), I'd just expect to see a few warnings in the device manager. Sure, some stuff might not work (integrated USB 3.x controllers, and stuff like that)... Obviously I'd need to try, but I doubt it won't "work at all".
