BlackSOD, i always have to re-install Nvidia drivers, 195.62. Everytime. Turn on --> BSOD --> Reset --> Install 195.62 --> Reset --> Desktop

 

Makes me believe the drivers are the culprit? Any one know a fix?

 How soon before Apple jumps all over this and we find some sort of "black screen of death" commercial.

Very unprofessional of Prevx to do something like this, especiallly as their a security firm, and should know the facts before making a conclusion. Not only did they state something that wasn't true, but they hurt Microsoft's reputation as a good technology vendor in the industry. No, not so much they'll never recover, but people don't like hearing that instead of a Blue Screen of Death, now there's the Black Screen of Death, too.

I am a Security Firm, honest.  I have just discovered that Windows 7 has a bug where if you use the right-mouse button, hoards of armored lizards materialize in your living room and attempt to fornicate with your dog. Feel free to include this information in your I'm A Mac campaign.  P.S. thanks for the check!

Whatta surprise. The media jumps on this like flies on a turd, and then finds out it wasn't the patch's fault at all. I already noticed the BBC has (finally) updated their article, but (again, surprise) the Apple-loving boys over at CNN has yet to do so.

And BTW, for most, that illustration is highly inaccurate...
