Wibdows (KB973879) causes systen crash (Blue Screen)
I installed 4 Windows updates this morning (KB973879, KB973074, KB970653,
KB972036) and the system crashed when it was trying to boot back up after
completing the installation of the updates. One time it booted up but then
crashed when I tried to open IE. Booted up in safe mode with networking,
googled Windows KB973879) and found a blog entry where someone else had
experience the same problem. Went to the Control Panel | Programs and
Features | View Installed Updates and then selected the KB973879 and
uninstalled it. Seems to be working fine now.
Stick with Method #1: Using System Restore to "undo" an update is not a wise
thing to do!

Good luck with your studies.

You would think Microsoft would have learned from their past botched update releases and that they would properly test their code before it is made public. If I was to write code in an application I was developing and it caused a computer to crash, I would soon become a member of the un-employed.
