Microsoft rolled out several bulletins for Windows computers on Patch Tuesday, but it seems like one of the included updates breaks down Windows 7 operating systems on thousands of computers.

According to several reports published by Brazilian media, the bug has been spotted on plenty of local computers, with users reporting a continuous reboot issue that blocks them from loading the operating system.

Microsoft has already acknowledged the issue and said that it’s working on a fix, so users are recommended to block the KB2823324 update until the company releases a fix.

In case you’ve already deployed it, removing the update seems to be the only way to deal with the issue, so you can always boot into Safe Mode with Command Prompt support and enter the following command:

code
DISM.exe / image: C: \ [Windows path]/ cleanup-image / revertpendingact

Just like Neowin.net writes, this would remove the update and help you get into Windows 7, but keep in mind that you need to block the installation until Microsoft launches a fix.

Update: Microsoft has just confirmed the issue and said that users should remove the update until a fix is released. More info here.
