    Yesterday, Windows Seven seems to have crashed Worldwide.


    I got one phone call after another about a Windows 7 "Black Screen of Death" - It would nto go past the black screen with the mouse, it would just stall.

    Was there some Windows Downdate that caused this, or some virus that was universally distributed? I had to do a system restore on 5 Windows 7 Puters at two different clients. All of them were stalling at the Black Screen and Cursor.

    One of them had no restore points, I was forced to do a complete Windows 7 reinstall on it.

    Anyone else notice anything even remotely similar to this? ps: These were all Dell systems, with completely legit activations.

    I found this: This explains it. So if this has happened to you, do a System Restore from the install disk.

    Ya know, I'm sure I posted this in another forum, this ain't a security issue, it's a System Restore/in-place install issue. I was wondering why it had vanished.
