Infamous KB977074 ( Microsoft Recommends)


Former Moderator
The infamous KB977074 January Update which was to solve certain "Stability And Reliability" problems is total junk for certain unlucky computer users. The update was designed for 32-and 64 bit versions of Windows 7; as well as Windows Server 2008 R2.

System is described as after install and reboot the following message appears "Windows is installing updates. Do not turn off your computer off"... 0 (Zero) Unfortunately, it stays at "0" and the system hangs there. There is a freeze and a blue screen of death----

The only way around that is a cold reboot and a system restore to before the update. -- Many people could only regain control of their machines by completely uninstalling the update--

Microsoft recommends that people affected by the update, to wait for the next "Stability And Reliability Update".
