How do I download the hotfix? I don't see a download link on that KB page.

That's a pretty circuitous route to the contact info. Microsoft Answers probably has the quickest response time for MS Support, I'd suggest making a new post here that includes a link to the hotfix page so they know exactly which one you need.

Looks risky. I don't have it set to auto-log in so the hotfix shouldn't work for me.

Yeah, if your issue isn't exactly the same as the one the hotfix is designed to address, it's safer not to perform it. Hopefully we can find another solution to this, though.

Solved it

I figured out why my computer was restarting and constantly messing up when hibernating, sleeping, etc.

Someone suggested removing AVG and Zonealarm and using Avast and Comodo instead. Problem solved. I've always liked AVG and Zonealarm, but for now, I'm going to avoid them until they can get their act together.
