A Black Tuesday for me indeed.
Loaded 3 security updates and--for the very first time--got a BSOD & Stop Error on reboot:
0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0xF5AF8FEC, 0XF63F6424, 0XF63F6120)
Dell Dimension E520
I also have AV Linux 5 (Debian 4) dual-booting on this machine.
Am posting this from Safe Mode. Could not get into normal Windows. Eventually ran a `Repair Windows' from Dell CD, and it's worse! Same screen after CD finished & reboot. If I attempt normal boot, after a few seconds it spontaneously reboots. Only SM will get me to a normal screen. I now face a full Windows re-install.
In America they have a FreePhone number to call. Not in the UK. Ploughed through the URL given as a link on one of the KB pages & was given a Support Case Number: 1157872147 & phone number. The options on screen that I was told to select did not exist on the phone, but eventually got a "Microsoft Security Essentials" option. Chose that, and it gave me a web URL to use, then cutoff. B*stards.
