Or you can learn what millions of others have learned: Do not install driver
or third-party software updates offered by Windows Update.

Auto Update Sept 9 causes endless loop
Operating system Windows XP SP3.

Nvidia update installed Sept 9 caused endless loop on reboot. Blue
screen message indicated NV4_disp was the probable cause.

I booted in safe mode and did a restore to just before the update and
all is fine. I have cancelled Automatic Updates and will not turn on
again until next month's updates are due.

Hope the problem will be solved at MS's end by then.

RE: Auto Update Sept 9 causes endless loop
Tom, to the best of my knowledge all driver updates are optional and do not
auto download and update.

Re: Auto Update Sept 9 causes endless loop
The update did come as an Automatic Update, and I declined the default
option to automatically install it(I usually just let it do its thing)
and chose the Custom Install so I could have a look at what was about
to install. I did this because I had just installed SP3 and did not
want to reinstall it. Unfortunately, I did not write down the KB
number and only remember thinking that it did not look like it could
do any harm.

Now I learn that the endless loop problem is widespread for users of
NVidia, mostly among gamers(I am not a gamer).

I add this further information so that if MS techs monitor these pages
they will have more to go on.
