Windows 7: MS again pushes patch linked to Win blue screens.

02 Mar 2010   #1

Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit. SP1.
MS again pushes patch linked to Win blue screens.

Microsoft today said it had restarted distribution of a security update that had crippled some Windows PCs last month with reboot problems and Blue Screen of Death error screens.

The update, dubbed MS10-015, originally shipped on Feb. 9, but was pulled from Windows Updates' automatic update two days later after complaints flooded Microsoft's support forum from users whose machines refused to restart after they had installed the patch. The affected PCs shuddered to a stop at the blue screen which indicates a serious software error and crash in Windows.

Within a week, Microsoft announced that only PCs infected with the "Alureon" rootkit were incapacitated by MS10-015. It denied that there was any flaw in the security update itself.

This is important to know ... Run the scanning tool.
Users who have already installed MS10-015 without problems do not have to reinstall it, Microsoft said.
The company also issued a scanning tool users can run to determine whether their PCs are infected with the rootkit before they attempt to download and install MS10-015. The tool doesn't scrub Alureon from a compromised computer, but only determines whether the system is compatible with the patch.
