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 doesnâ€™t seem to be a solution yet. The KB3033929 update doesnâ€™t appear to address a critical or urgent security vulnerability, instead, the update is a â€œcode signingâ€ 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 havenâ€™t installed the update yet, thereâ€™s no rush. Itâ€™s best to wait until Microsoft figures out whatâ€™s going on with the update, and if/when itâ€™s resolved, feel free to apply it; however, the update may simply be pulled and re-issued.
