How to Remove the Windows 7 Timebomb Reboot/Restart KB971033

how-to-remove-the-windows-7-timebomb-rebootrestart-kb971033

Many beta testers of Windows 7 and downloaders of the infamous windows update KB971033, have had an unfortunate surprise. Windows 7 has been restarting itself hourly or near-hourly. Do not fret, here at Geekmontage we take care of our users.

Below I have carefully outlined the various methods for ending the Windows 7 Timebomb / hourly reboots.

Method 1: Open notepad and paste the following code in, saving the file as “all files” on file type and type in “timebomb.bat” as the file name and save. Then run it.

@echo off

Now reboot!

    Thanks for the info. For your interest Method 1 claims that I do not have Windows 7 ! Thats news to me and probably microsoft.

    My computer doesn’t seem to restart as often as it was, but I am still having problems with it restarting after it’s been on for a long time (without me touching it). I ran the 7Loader, WAT 2.2.5, and last but not least… I deleted and hid the update KB971033. That update seemed to solve the problem because I let my computer sit to see if it would restart on it’s own and I was all excited thinking, “Yaay! It’s fixed.” To my dismay, later on I noticed that it was back at the Windows 7 Logon Screen :( I’m trying to find something in the Event Viewer that might be the cause… perhaps it’s this: Event ID 10010
    The server {28DD3979-0566-4ED3-9B14-1548B3187491} did not register with DCOM within the required timeout.
    Any help would gladly be appreciated… Thanks.

    If it says that, delete the lines:
    reg QUERY “HKLMSOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersion” /v “ProductName” | findstr /i “7” >nul
    IF ERRORLEVEL 1 GOTO OSERROR

    From it, save it, and try again. This way it will not check your version.
