windows update

On March 10th, 2015, Microsoft released its Patch Tuesday updates, which happened to be one of the biggest sets of updates lately, including KB3033929 amongst various other security-related updates. Unfortunately, many Windows 7 users have noticed the KB3033929 update causing a reboot loop, wherein the device unexpectedly restarts; causing frustration and disruption for the user.

The issue has been posted on multiple technology help forums, however, there doesn’t seem to be a solution yet. The KB3033929 update doesn’t appear to address a critical or urgent security vulnerability, instead, the update is a “code signing” update designed to enhance the ability of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 systems to confirm the authenticity of programs running on the operating system.

If you haven’t installed the update yet, there’s no rush. It’s best to wait until Microsoft figures out what’s going on with the update, and if/when it’s resolved, feel free to apply it; however, the update may simply be pulled and re-issued.
