Tech Tips by DoctorLaptop

Windows 7 Update Problem Latest Info: Until the dust settles with this Processor Chip Threat fiasco I recommend all Windows 7 users turn off Automatic Updates. Holding off for 4 or 8 weeks on updates won’t be a problem, that will give time for a “proper” fix; the current panic response fix is poorly conceived. I have had a dozen calls in the past 3 days where user’s Win 7 computers have had big problems after attempting to do the recent batch of updates, which include the processor patch I previously warned about. There are 2 problems occurring. One, if the update installs, the computer is now very slow, as if you are on a slow internet connection. Two, the computer tries to restart itself after the update, or tells you to restart it, but that leads to a startup failure/restart loop and endless error messages. Problem #1 has no remedy and as of now cannot be undone! If you have Problem #2 try turning it off and on a few times, waiting 5 minutes between restarts. You will probably have to force the shutdowns by holding down the poser button 5 secs.,  something I normally warn against; in this case there is no alternative since it’s stuck in a restart loop with no access to on-screen shutdown buttons. If it still won’t start you’ll need a Win 7 install dvd/usb media to boot from to  run recovery tools. I can fix Problem #2 for you if necessary. Call DoctorLaptop to make an appt to drop it off, I’ll need it overnight. My contact info is in the Sponsor’s Section of every issue.
