Windows 7.1 update
 
Has anybody been asked to to sign into a new security screen following an update ?

Then found their PC has crashed ?

I haven't had anything like this. All 3 of our PCs run Windows 7 SP1, but I've never heard of a Windows 7.1 update or having to sign to a new security screen. Can you give more details please?

Its for another mate Madeline and thats all I know. He says he restored it to a restore point. Ive asked him for the KB update number so I can see if Ive had the same but I havent heard anything yet. He thinks he has been hacked though.

A few weeks ago somebody put a link up to the new microsoft updates index and I meant to save it but cant find it anywhere does anybody have it please.

When did this occur and is your machine password protected ?

Are you able to boot up into Safe Mode and use your restore points to before you got this update ?

If you are able to restore to before this update, can you then go Start - right click on Computer and select Properties.

At the top of the screen does it say Service Pack 1 ?

Do you have any more details about this? I've looked through my 'Installed Updates' for recent months, but I can't find anything to do with 'Windows 7.1'.

Re: Windows 7.1 update
 
thanks to both of you. He says it is OK now since he ran the restore point. Ref the Windows 7.1 I am also not sure if he is mistaken about that either Madeline.

I was curious too about the KB number and the questions Cantrel also asked but I presume it must have been service pack 1.

He said it was a very good copy of what looked like a genuine Microsoft update. Maybe someone else will flag this somewhere down the line.

Re: Windows 7.1 update
 
What I was wondering was if it had been a very belated SP1 update, in which case, the restore point would have taken it back and SP 1 would no longer be there in Properties.

Anyway, all's well that ends well - unless he gets that update again and then the KB number will be known.
