Windows 7: Boot problems after update kb972407

26 Aug 2009   #1

Windows 7 x64 RC 7100
Boot problems after update kb972407

After installing this latest update I couldn't boot up normally, the computer hangs after the "Starting Windows" screen. Screen goes black, sometimes an immobile mouse pointer sits in the middle of it.

Thankfully I had system restores, and a recent backup to use.

But I was wondering if anyone else had the same problem? And what it could be that is breaking my computer?
