While it does not happen often, every once in a while a security update to patch Windows causes more problems than it solves. Case in point, security update 2823324 that was a part of this month’s Patch Tuesday release for Windows 7. Some users have been experiencing endless rebooting or a failure of their system to restart after installing the update. To counteract the problem Microsoft has published a KB article to help get affected systems up and running again.

Some blogs here is Brazil published that this problem happened mainly here. And the cause was probably a plugin that all the major banks force the users to install in order to use their sites .

I assume from reading your article that this conforms to my first rule of computing, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." Thus if you are not having a problem, leave it alone! The title of the article might be a little misleading.

Are you suggesting to stop installing updates in general? That's terrible advice.
Step 1: Stick with outdated software.
Step 2: Get owned through a drive-by vulnerability and get your bank accounts emptied and identity stolen
Step 3: ???
Step 4: Profit!

No just update as Windows 8 allows you to.
If it ain't broke, don't try to fix it with updates.

But, it is broke, that's why there are updates. And it is broken in ways most of us can not determine for our selves. Personally I have updated automatically since they started updating automatically. I have never had a problem with an update that was successful messing something up. But, I do not add a lot of ad-on type software from fly-by-night developers. My systems are pretty clean, thus few problems software-wise.

This system has got nothing on it except Windows 8.
Takes 5 minutes before I can log on to new Discourse HTG Site.
I think Windows 8 on this set of SSDs is "Broken" for sure ??

As I mentioned in my previous post today about this issue - I have yet to install the latest updates for my Windows 7 system and - as of this morning - the KB2823324 is now unchecked by default on the updates list.

Updates were Utter Disaster on Windows 8.
Everything went Fine on Windows 7 SP-2 Tuesday.
Same Machine, just different sets of SSDs running different OSes.
All Hardware is Up-To-Date.

My Windows 8, 2 Windows 7s, 2 Vistas, and 2 XPs along with my daughters W7 laptop all updated with no problem. I did not even know it until I looked today. I love the magic of an auto-update at 3am.

I Dual Boot Using the Bios on two machines so I don't have that luxury
The very old Third machine in the back room I just turn on when I want to get something off the Spinners.
I'm going to dispose of all of its' internals when I "can the junk" in the back room this summer.
I'll use the Case for the new Haswell Build.
