The funny thing about all that is that the BSoD seen here was just before the updates came out on the 11th! Here's another one seen now dispelling the "Hype" over updates as the cause!

Move over, BSOD: There's a new screen of death in town. The frightful-sounding "black screen of death" is striking Windows machines worldwide, if recent media reports are to be believed, and Microsoft itself is the one who unleashed the beast.

It sure sounds dramatic, doesn't it? Even I got under my desk and hid for a few minutes (I ate a sandwich while I was down there -- it was delicious). It turns out, though, the "black screen of death" debacle may be more sensationalized than severe -- and, what's more, Microsoft's security updates likely have nothing to do with it whatsoever.

Three Tips to Avoid the Windows Black Screen of Death

Quote:
It doesn't take much to ignite FUD (fear, uncertainty, and doubt) against Microsoft--especially with news of a critical flaw affecting Windows 7. News that a Microsoft update is causing "millions" of PC's to experience a "black screen of death" is both exaggerated and wrong. Apparently, its much ado about nothing.

I saw that one as well. It seems they are now in a tabloid phase for new blogs real fast there!
