RE: Windows update KB941649 breaks the system boot...
After installing update, described in KB941649, on to my Gateway laptop the
system would lock-up during boot. I had to use the install DVD to to be able
to boot again. I couldn't even go into the safe mode command line. I hope
MS has some resolution for this fairly quickly. Everytime the Explorer
crashes the "Problem Reports and Solutions" window points me to this update.
I tried disabling anti-virus and the firewall, still break the boot. I
also tried turning off the computer and let it sit for 10 minutes with no
power (no bateries or a power supply). The HDD is not being accessed. My
guess is that the update breaks the HDD driver.
Has any one found a succesfull work around this?
