    Hi, folks: All depend on which patches do you receive. I got mine, mainly for IE7, and have no problems.

    hello do you think thats why i had two bsods today?
    i never expected it to be a ms patch but that would make sence since my pc normaly very stable and two bsods in one day is very odd.

    Hi, folks: as I have said previously. It all depends on which patches do you get. MS scans your pc for needed updates, yours are not necessarily same as mine. You need to spell out which ones you suspect to cause BSOD.:)

    Hi, folks: Yes, numbers such as KBxxxxxxx, it will tell you the contents if you search MS website. These are your leads.:D

    Hello,
    I warmly suggest you do not install updates so soon. Let them simmer for a week or so before trying them - unless you use a virtual machine. That way, you let other people find the problems.

    the last updates i done where on the 10th of december the update for IE7 and the mailous removal tool
    and yesterday i installed the directx 9 update so its got to be one of those.

    Hi, Iodore: I do hope these will help you pinpoint the source of problem. I installed KB928089(for IE7) and malious removal tool on Dec.17/06 AND installed KB929969(for IE7) and malious removal tool on Jan.9/07. All works well, no problems. You mentioned something about Directx 9 update, which I did not have. Hope these helpful.:)

    Hi, folks: Just curious, do those folks at microsoft also know this trade secret? If so, I think the zero day is around the corner. God saves us!

    Hello,
    Don't get too excited about zero days exploits. If Microsoft can wait to ship them for a full month, another week or two won't matter. Unless all you do is visit special sites hunting for uber-PoC cracks and codes - in that case use Linux.

    No Outpost. I have the following instead:
    Ad-Aware SE Pro 1.06 (Ad-Watch running in the
    Zone Alarm 5.5.094
    and of course ..... NOD32 2.7.16

    This message appears in the BSOD:
    "Machine Check Exception"

    Before 9th Jan 07, my pc has been doing fine without a single BSOD.

    Sorry, i was seeing a connection, you gave agnitum's link:ouch:
    Seems like you had the BSOD, and looked for an answer.

    I found this: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=329284&sd=RMVP
    and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Machine_Check_Exception


    "Problems that cause an MCE

    Most of these errors are specific to the Pentium processor family, similar errors may occur on other processors and will cause the same problems.

    Here are some of the main hardware problems that cause MCE's:

    * System bus errors (error communicating between the processor and the motherboard)
    * Memory errors that may include parity / Error correction code (ECC) problems. Error checking ensures that data is stored correctly in the RAM, if information is corrupted then random errors occur.
    * Cache errors in the processor, the cache stores important data and code. If this is corrupted errors often occur

    Causes

    Normal causes for MCE errors are overheating and incorrect hardware installation. Overheating can cause electrons to become more animated and so escape from the silicon tracks corrupting data. Some specific manual causes could be:

    * Overclocking (naturally increases heat output)
    * Poorly fitted heatsink/fans

    Computer software can also cause errors in this way (normally by corrupting data they are reading or writing). For example:

    * Software performing read/writes to non-existent memory regions confuses the processor / system bus.
    * Certain sequences of operations may trigger processors to become confused - for example if too many programs are used at the same time."

    Exactly why my 'Automatic Updates' are set to 'Notify me but don't download or install.'
    ...no problems with this patch in a xp VM as yet...

    Hi, folks: you have ad-aware SE pro and have Ad-watch running when window starts. I had BSOD while I had Ad-watch running along w/ window starts, many months ago. You could try to disable Ad-watch and reboot pc, and good luck, if your problem is software related.

    Interesting point. It has been my experience as well as others. I highly those with Adwatch to disable it. And to use AAW as ondemand only.

    its was all of a few hours from the latest patch to the working VML exploit being published

    http://www.techweb.com/showArticle.jhtml?articleID=196900546

    and that was the good guys :cautious:
    recall the zero day they found out had been circulating in Moscow for a month or so before its "zero day"?

    they wait to ship so they dont break enterprise systems
    then enterprise takes another month to test them anyway :-*

    Linux, definitely Linux

    No BSOD after re-seating the memory modules.
    I did not disable Ad-Watch as this serve the purpose of protecting the pc from hijack/registry attack while online.
