Microsoft’s Latest Security Updates for Windows Lead to ‘Black Screen of Death’

Jeremy King:

Microsoft’s latest round of security patches appears to be causing some PCs to seize up and display a black screen, rending the computer useless.

The problem affects Microsoft products including Windows 7, Vista and XP operating systems, said Mel Morris , the CEO and CTO for the U.K. security company Prevx.

Sounds like a major conflict with third-party antivirus software.

Update: Ends up this story is bogus.
