    I couldn't agree more. I think you should always wait for at last one SP before rolling out, to (hopefully) ensure they've ironed out most of the issues.

    That said, this little issue seems to be impacting previous Windows versions too.

    I am currently up to date on all patches for W7 and just ran a check to make sure I have not seen any issues like this been running beta and full blown W7 professional since the day it came out. I know that 7 is better because I was on a beta test of Vista and MS would not listen to us. Surprise Surprise W7 with some of the change we asked for.

    Microsoft: Black Screen Of Death due to patches? Umm NO

    It was caused by Malware - not Microsoft.
