Windows Users remained stymied today by endless reboots after trying to upgrade their PCs to Windows 7, according to messages posted on Microsoft's support forum. An answer has yet to be found for all users, who began reporting the problem last Friday after watching the upgrade stall two-thirds of the way through the process.

The users caught in this nasty trap have my sympathy. As many have pointed out in various fora, clean installs are usually best and less complicated. One suspects that, unfortunately, those most likely to choose the upgrade option are also the least likely to know to backup everything, and perhaps even the phrase "clean install" is frightening. I see MS's stock has lost only 50-odd cents. Teflon ... amazing. I guess in Wall Street's eyes, they can do no wrong, and always smell like ... freshly printed $100 bills.
