Update with what's going in Tech world.


It seems like Microsoft has a habit of generating some sort of ‘Ring of Death’ issue with either software or hardware. The latest is for Windows 7 that’s only recently been launched properly, for which a Malware issue is creating problems for users.


The scenario is being called 'Black Screen of Death'. Xbox users will gasp in horror. Apparently Windows users are confronted by a totally black screen after they log on to their system. It’s possible that you might not necessarily face this issue but if you do, don’t worry your fellow Microsoft users who are currently still using Vista and XP could also share your woe. One security firm had suggested that a Microsoft security update could be the cause but later apologized as that proved not to be the case.


The main issue that seemed to be the core reason for the BSOD (Black Screen of Death) is malware. The security company, Prevx, that made the initial claim of the problem coming from Microsoft’s end, issued a fix for the scenario that didn’t work for everyone. The firm reports that the problem affects editions of Windows 7, Vista, XP, NT, and Windows 2000. Microsoft said that people who are affected by the problem should contact its customer service line. So Microsoft is getting a rather colorful branding with a seemingly negative connotation as a harbinger of technological deaths from Blue to Red and now Black modes that are killing our devices. Hopefully the company will issue a fix for this situation. We can hope it’ll be quick.
