Black Screen of Death Not Microsoft’s Fault

Barence follows up to the ongoing Black Screen of Death Saga by saying “Microsoft says reports of ‘Black Screen of Death’ errors aren’t caused by Windows Updates, as claimed by a British security firm. The software giant claims November’s Windows Updates didn’t alter registry keys in the way described by Prevx, which said that the Microsoft Patches caused PCs to boot with just a black screen and a Windows Explorer window. Microsoft is now blaming the problem on malware. Prevx has issued a grovelling apology on its own blog.”
