More great news from Windows Vista Update:
Although Microsoft Corp. has yet to fix an update that sent some Windows Vista machines into endless reboots, today it spelled out several work-arounds users can apply to regain control of those PCs.
Last week’s update — actually a pair of prerequisite files that modify Vista’s install components to prep the operating system for Service Pack 1 (SP1) — caused some systems to repeatedly reboot, while others simply balked at booting. On Tuesday, Microsoft reacted to a flood of reports on its support forums by pulling the files from Windows Update until it could determine what went awry.
Well, the obvious problem is that the users were running Vista. While Microsoft might eventually fix its latest fix, Vista sufferers might try backgrading to Windows XP. Or, they might even consider buying a computer with a modern operating system.
