My wife has a brand new HP laptop (2 weeks old, hardly used): Specs.: HP_PAVILION_DV6707U S_ENTE RTAINMENT Notebook PC 1.9 GHz AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core Mobile Technology TK-57 CPU • 2 GB (2x1 GB) RAM with Windows Vista Home Premium pre-installed. Apparently, after an automatic OS update, the machine rebooted, and has continued rebooting ever since. Result: she is unable to log on and perform her work. Is this related to Windows Vista OS? If so, is there anywhere she can turn off the Automatic Update feature (or at least get a prompt where she can decide Yes or No to the update?). Re-installing Vista is, of course, an option, even though it seems to be the stone age variant.
