Not the posters fault, but there seems to be very little detail on which software is affected.

Third-party devs possibly writing software that depended on keys it shouldn't have, or was it Microsoft's fault?

Though I wasn't experiencing the black screen, I had random video lockups and sound skipping (that would always correct itself within about 10 seconds, then start again a few minutes later).

 

 The fix seems to have corrected this and made my system faster on bootup.....?

 

Anyway, I reccomend running it even if you have no problems, though I can't say for sure it will really help anything. ^__^

I wonder which OS your running as my GF Dell laptop seems to do that on vista.

I'm running 7 HP x64, but 7 is based on the vista core, and therefore it could help you as well. ^__^

Wierd but I have no updates from 11/10 on my W7.  All i had that day was Definition Updates for Windows Defender.

So, the updates were rolled out on November 10th, almost 3 weeks ago, and we are first hearing about this now.  I don't know about the rest, but I updated on November 10th, a Vista machine and an XP machine.  Not problems, nada, zip.   This looks like someone trying to sell some bogus "fix" for a nonexistent problem.

Not sure but in the past couple weeks my Firefox has been crashing alsmost every other time I'm browsing..... which comes out to be around 3-4 times crashing daily. I have the latest version and all Windows updates. I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit..... maybe this is related somehow? Not the exact symptoms, but meh...

i wonder if we need to back to the 6 month rule for microsoft updates.

1) if the update is 6 months old ok install it

2) if your computer is messing up go check your updates, if it is less than 6months old, unistall it.

well, its looking that way. i dont know if many of you remember when this was a problem but i do.
