Microsoft lies and greed....exposed!

Image representing Windows as depicted in Crun...Image via CrunchBase
The reason there has been less action on my Sites recently is because Microsoft "cocked" us all up on their last "download day" in November!
Microsoft say NO - every one else says YES....! The updates actually changed registry values, giving mainly a black screen, just with, at most, a small warning message. Windows could not be loaded!
I had the problem on my 3 pc's (2 desktops and 1 laptop) and it took me around 4 days to figure out the problem. I could always load windows by a different method, but very, very long winded. I finally found that by going into the "BIOS" system and revaluating to "original/default values" the problem was solved! In other words all 3 pc's had the same REGISTRY problems after updating from Microsoft!
I'm just surprised that so little has been said about the problem, and I advise you (and myself) to rethink your policy regarding "Windows Updates" and indeed rethink about Windows - in general! Linux is free, Google Chrome o/s is coming out in the near future, whilst Windows are already talking about Windows 8 - S month or so after cashing in on Windows 7 !  Is there any limit to their greed?
Here is an article I found about the problem (You can see the original article by clicking on the title above):


Microsoft quashes 'black screen of death' speculation

Company debunks notion of November update causing errors
Microsoft is denying reports that its latest monthly security update is causing users to experience serious system problems.
The problem was said to stem from an error in the November "Patch Tuesday" release. Security firm Prevx originally reported that the update was editing registry keys, potentially causing an error which would leave users with a completely blank screen.

Soon after the Prevx report was released, Microsoft said that it began an investigation to find the root cause for the errors.
"We have conducted a comprehensive review of the November Security Updates, the Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool, and the non-security updates we released through Windows Update in November," the company said in a blog posting.
"That investigation has shown that none of these updates make any changes to the permissions in the registry. Thus, we don’t believe the updates are related to the 'black screen' behaviour described in these reports."
Microsoft said that the exact cause for the errors is not known, the problem is believed to be associated with certain types of malware known to modify registry settings.
In an update and retraction to its original report, Prevx also suggested that a malware infection could be the culprit. The company is still offering a free tool to correct the black screen errors

Anonymous comment (above) is just a publicity spam to what looks like an illegal sex site. I'll be taking it off when I've got the time, in any case, it's all in chinese or japanese or something like that
Oh yeah...if it's not viagra etc it's something even less understandable like this Asiatique stuff.
