And this is why I now wait several weeks before installing the latest round of Windows updates. Honestly, this is embarrassing.

I got no such complaints on my side or family computers with Windows 7x64 Ultimate. I think it also has something to do with how user take care of their system as well if they get corrupted files and don’t fix it then sure problems from the update will more or less contribute to the problem. I have one that Auto Windows 7 update and other where I offline download the updates and none of them get the continuous reboot repairs. I think it both users and the MS updates that contribute but when users customizes their O/S their own actions contributes to part of the problem as well. And the problem is since we have no idea what their setup is that lead to this problem is also the problem there is no way to backtrack where the problem really started from to know what caused it or what multiple causes where.

I just did the Tuesday updates on 5 machines and none have any boot loops. All Windows 7 machines. :wink:

I encountered bizarre behavior after I installed the the windows updates and restarted. I don’t know if it was the updates or that Panda antivirus issue. Anyway no non-system program would launch. Not the shortcuts, not going to Program Files and directly launching it with admin. Each time it would give me the error ‘the parameter is incorrect’. I’m on Win 7 Ult 64. This is why I set my backup to occur every Tuesday, early in the AM. So that no matter what happens I have a pre-Windows update copy. Anyone else ever run into anything like this?

In Thursday I received a relative’s 8.1 pc because of a black screen with mouse pointer after installing the updates.
Yesterday, a friend’s 7 pc that got the same after updating it.
Today I received a friend’s XP system which reports a missing file after updating.
Now I read this. Come on MS! Give me a break!

My sons Mother-In-Law, went on a two week cruise and came back and when she booted it did the updates, then she could not open her programs, When she clicked on the shortcut, or main .exe she got error, “this action can only be applied to programs that are installed” I told her how to use the restore but it took several different restore points to get a good restore. Win 7, 64bit
