    Microsoft said it is looking in to reports that some computers running Windows 7 crash as soon as the user logs on Users have been complaining on internet forums about the ''black screen of death'', which causes the screen of their Windows 7 machine to turn black and the computer to crash when a user logs on.

    Microsoft confirmed that it was investigating the possibility that a security update, released on Thursday, could be the root of the problem but later said that it was not the cause.

    "Microsoft has investigated reports that its November security updates made changes to permissions in the registry that that are resulting in system issues for some customers," a statement read.

    "The cause appears to be a change in the Windows operating system lockdown of registry keys," said Dave Kennerley, a support engineer with Prevx. "This change has the effect of invalidating several key registry entries if they are updated without consideration of the new ACL (access control list) rules being applied."

    Give it a couple of months and it will be just fine. Leo Laporte the tech guy gives Windows 7 great reviews and he is hard to satisfy. On his last show he said they had caught up with apple and he has always preferred Apple.

    I've been running 7 since the RC came out and I've never encountered any kind of issue with it. If you have Vista, it's definately worth the upgrade.

    A snail would be faster to the eye than would XP. XP is slower than a slow thing at a slow contest. :D

    Hey, can you finally rotate objects using trackpad gestures in Windoze 7, like you can on OSX?
