    Windows patch cripples XP

    Oh the joys of owning computers:

    The problem is caused by KB977165, see Restart issues after installing MS10-015. It's not universal, but some users do report problems.

    Here is how to fix:

    • Boot from your Windows XP CD and start the recovery console.
    • You may need to press F6 while the Recovery Console loads in order to load SATA drivers; these can be found on your motherboard CD (or downloaded from the manufacturer web site).
    • If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console.
    • When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
    • Type: CD $NtUninstallKB977165$\spuninst (press ENTER)
    • Type: BATCH spuninst.txt (press ENTER)
    • Type: exit (press ENTER)
