Windows 7 users report crash issues with security update

 
Microsoft recently released a new security update aimed at patching up a few bugs and tweaking a few settings, that update seems to have caused some large problems with Windows 7 users.
 
The update seems to cause crashes with (Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista), the update will cause the PCs to enter an endless reboot cycle. As of right now the only fix is to reinstall the OS. That being said, Microsoft is recommending that Windows 7 users uninstall the security update as soon as possible. The patch came out to prevent outside users from forcibly controlling aspects of an infected PC. If you have installed the update and have entered into a reboot cycle, or have received the infamous blue-screen of death (BSOD) then the security update is most likely to blame.
 
The most common error message a user will see is “The file system structure on the disk is corrupt and unusable”. Other reports state that they received, “The Session Manager Initialization system process terminated unexpectedl.” According to NBCnews a connection between the update and the antivirus program from Kaspersky Labs causes the issue.
 
The company issued this statement, “Kaspersky Lab apologizes for any inconvenience this has caused our customers,”. As for a fix the company followed with, “The company will work harder to strengthen its technical collaboration with its partners in order to prevent any repeat of this incident in the future.”
 
If you are having issues try booting from a Windows 7 disk to fix the operating system. If that fails to work, you may want to contact Microsoft Support or wait until a definite fix is underway.
