It would be really nice to be able to believe this fairytale, but we know it isn't. While it is true that many have reported this inconvenience, others pointed out that the update in question, KB4534310, never actually arrived on their computer. The bug could also be caused by a problem with the authentication system, hypothesis supported by the fact that some users with Windows 10 have also experienced the same problem. Another point that should be emphasized is that for a fee, companies can request additional patches from the Redmond-based giant through the service. ESU (extended security update) until 2023, so Windows 7 isn't all that dead.



One thing is sure, we will hardly find out the truth about this elusive black background. The official end of support for Windows 7 arrived on January 14 and in the meantime the web has already been filled with images with particular situations and parodies due to the event in question.


If you still have an old version of Windows this is a good time to upgrade to Windows 10, by purchasing a key for less than 10 euros.
