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.'”
This happened to me.Â I was able to get my computer running again by using a restore point from the previous day.Â Hey microsoft: you fucked up here guys, you kept me from star trek online and cheap porn for over an hour while I kinda freaked out that my brand new computer was somehow totally fucked.
