Rome might be the Eternal City, but Windows 7 could be the eternal reboot, if nothing is done about the situation for folks living in Brazil. I am referring to those who are running the 32-bit version of Windows 7 on their notebooks in Brazil, where their machines would end up in an infinite reboot cycle after installing the latest update. Right now, it would be best if you were to make sure that update KB2823324 remains blocked at all costs, at least until Microsoft manages to fix the bug.
Apparently, this particular update seems to affect only those living in Brazil, and Microsoft has yet to pinpoint just what is wrong with the situation. After all, it definitely is no fun when your machine ends up rebooting endlessly, as it would have transformed your notebook into nothing more than an expensive paperweight. If you want to prevent yourself from falling victim, turn off automatic updates and do not update your notebook until there is a fix from Microsoft. Anyone have any idea why only Brazil is affected?
