Times may have passed, but there are still users who are using the Windows 7 OS. Over the years, many issues regarding said software had been addressed. May it be caused by minor bugs or some faulty programs. But recently, some errors had been caused by the latest update by Microsoft.

On Tuesday, Microsoft had issued a statement regarding the problem caused by the update which had the computer to enter a cycle of endless restart loop. This problem was first reported by Brian Kebs. Brian had allegedly seen the issue listed across multiple forums from the Microsoft Windows Help and Support section.

The patch was issued to add a "code signing" function to the OS. The KB3033929 patch improves the ability of Windows 7 and the Windows Server 2008 R2 systems to detect and validate the integrity and authenticity of the programs running on the said operating system. However, the update was not successful and had caused many Windows 7 computers to crash.

But is there a way out of the endless reboot loop?  Here are some possible solutions.

 Windows 7 users should use the system repair / restore option.  

1. Restart the computer.

2. Continue on pressing the F8 key until you reach the "Advanced Boot Options" screen.

3. Select "Repair your Computer" using your arrow keys and press enter.

4. A "Use recovery tools that can help fix problems starting windows" pop up would then appear. Continue to Next. 

5. Another pop up screen will then show up. Select "system restore" and choose the recovery points to return the OS to normal.

6. After restoring your computer to normal, deselect the MS Update 3033929 to avoid the incident from happening again.
