Windows patch cripples XP with blue screen, users claim


Recommended Posts

Computerworld - Tuesday's security updates from Microsoft have crippled Windows XP PCs with the notorious Blue Screen of Death (BSOD), users have reported on the company's support forum.

Complaints began early yesterday, and gained momentum throughout the day.

"I updated 11 Windows XP updates today and restarted my PC like it asked me to," said a user identified as "tansenroy" who kicked off a growing support thread. "From then on, Windows cannot restart again! It is stopping at the blue screen with the following message: 'A problem has been detected and Windows has been shutdown to prevent damage to your computer.'"

Others joined in with similar reports. "There is something seriously wrong with the update. I can't even open in safe mode," said "Ghellow," referring to Windows diagnostic mode that's often a last-chance way to boot a PC.

That's really odd. Yesterday when my computer, which has XP, was going through the automatic updates my antivirus popped up and said one of the files was "corrupt or unrecognized". I let the antivirus put it in the vault, and haven't had any problems. I'm gonna have to go look and see what the file was now. I wonder if it could have been part of the bad update everyone is talking about....?

This is interesting because I suddenly started having problems with Vista 32 and thought I might have a virus or malware. I scanned for both and found nothing. There was just a big update to Visa and XP. I'm one to install updates as soon as they're available. So, maybe the problems I had with Vista 32 were due to the updates?!

The biggest update to Vista is Windows 7 right?

Yep.... Thats probably the best "UPDATE" you could do to Vista. :D :D :D

I have Win 7 on my new laptop I got for Christmas.

Still getting used to it...but so far, I like it.

I'm going out later today to get a new laptop with Windows 7. The computer I have now is just so slow, I can't deal with it anymore. It's a nice computer, there is just something wrong with it. After I get my new one, I will look into fixing this one. I just don't want to lose anything important off it, so I want to transfer everything to my new one first. Now I'll have 2 projects to work on. My car, and this computer. At least I know I'll have something to do for a while.

That is what I was thinking MAC, I also did virus scans as I felt my computer was pre-occupied with something and freezing up due to something behind the scenes. It seems to have stabilized now

By the way I LOVE Vista 64 bit....., the 32 bit version is crap

Both of my XP and both of my Vista 64 notebooks updated without difficulty.

Vista 64 was a giant headache at first, but has become a stable operating system after all the refinements. I'm interested in Windows 7, but I'm not willing to be an early adopter ever again. We're on the "bleeding edge" at work; I don't need to come home to that @$#* in the evening.

There is no means of avoiding the final collapse of a boom brought about by credit expansion. The alternative is only whether the crisis should come sooner as the result of a voluntary abandonment of further credit expansion, or later as a final and total catastrophe of the currency system involved. - Ludwig von Mises

I've been tinkering around with my new pc with windows 7, and so far it doesn't really seem much different than Vista 64. I'm sure I'll find some new things along the way. No complaints yet though.
