Microsoft can't seem to get anything right nowadays.

Is no one bothered about this? It bricks your PC.
I think people have grown tired of all the win 8/8.1 bashing...
It is just an MBR corruption, that is hardly "bricking your PC", and it is an extremely easy fix too. Way to make a mountain out of a mole hill.
OH GOD NO!!! NOT FIXMBR!!!! LAWD JESUS HEP US AWL!!!!
I will guess more damage will be done by users and viruses than by this issue. I have fixed many infected bootsectors with this command, and I would almost guess a Win7 disk would work to get into the recovery console and perform the fix, and MS has made the download and USB install tool available for free. A 15 minute download, and a few clicks to then type that command in and fix it, total, 20-30 minutes, how long did the user play Candy Crush for?
There's no mountains here. Look, someone showed me this article and I posted it. Whatever.
