Microsoft has been getting complaints from users who are seeing their new Windows 7, Vista and XP machines crash with what is being called a black screen of death. Some reports claim that a recent update from Microsoft is responsible for the issue.

Microsoft has denied that its updates are the cause of the black screen issue. Microsoft claims that the black screen is not a wide issue. The software giant says that black screen issues are associated with some malware like Daonol.

The firm that originally fingered Microsoft as the cause for these issues, Prevx is now saying that it has been able to rule out the updates as the cause. There is no word on what the real cause is at this point.
