The cynic in me says that there will be more and more stories like this that seem to be Windows 7 specific in a move to sway people to move on to Windows 8. For me though, this is just another reason to let updates rest for a month or so before downloading and installing them.

why toms use same account system between .com and .co.uk sites but don't have single comment system for articles?

This update messed 2 computers in my office and 6 from my friends.
All issues only happened on 32-bit OS with Win 7 brazilian portuguese language.
The computer shoppings in my city were flooded with costumers complaining...really messy stuff.
It´s rather easy to repair even without a restore point, but you need to know what to do.

This just tells me Microsoft patch engineers didn't know about the kernel level spyware they put in Brazilian versions of the OS so they could help Uncle Sam monitor the drug cartels / cocaine trade.

Phew! When I read the title, I went to my update history and saw that I have that update for 3 of my computers so I read the article, but fortunately, they all run 64-bit.

My wife's laptop has Vista 32 bit on it and she just mentioned that it is undergoing this same problem this evening. I was waiting til the weekend to fix it for her. I am guessing this is the same cause, as she said it went into this reboot loop after she did an update. Not Brazilian version either.
