Computer problems after win7 auto downloaded final update

Hey all,

Just to inform people, I am without a properly(?) functioning machine for the time being. It seems the last win7 update which my system downloaded automatically has completely crippled my machine. The update originally caused me to receive a BSoD every time i reached the desktop, but I had been able to alleviate some of the issue in safe mode, it mainly only BSoD's now when running any game that's not in software mode (basicly any program that makes use of the GPU, it seems like).

From here on I'm basicly done with MacroShite products, and am going to migrate to linux (Debian) when i get my new machine. I don't really find it much of a coincidence that this happened at exactly the moment my computer received the final win7 update.

I have both heard of people experiencing odd problems after the last update, and also not. Any windows 7 users from here who had the last update cripple their computer in some way?

I'm glad Windows Update has been broken on my PCs for the last year or so.

I got 4 Windows 7 machines, all got the updates, none got any issues besides scary messages about the end of support date.

Probably the partition, the boot sector was ruined. and was restored by a utility that the system has. I'm a technician. Hello

Windows is :broken_heart_icon:

But it will restart for you. Just for you~~

Also here's a QR code so you can hump it with your smartphone's rounded edges and share it on facebook
