Windows Patch Leaves Many XP Users With Blue Screens

CWmike writes “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. Several users posted solutions, but the one laid out by ‘maxyimus’ was marked by a Microsoft support engineer as the way out of the perpetual blue screens.”
