'Black screen of death' for some Windows 7 users

A Microsoft security update for its new computer operating system, Windows 7 as well as older versions of Windows, is resulting in some users getting a "black screen of death" on their machines, according to reports.

The problem may be tied to security updates recently released by the software maker.

Of course, that's the Ultimate version. If you have the professional version it's a blue screen. If you have the home edition it's a green screen.
