Sounds like an incompatibility between and update and some software on your
system, possibly a driver. For your information to be useful, knowing which
updates were removed and what the details of the error messages were are
critical. As well some system configuration information and details from the
event viewer would help.
Xp, like other Win OS's, was similarly unstable when released. So have been
many iterations of Linux, it's the nature of the beast. Service Packs will
improve stability, but the majority of early issues arise from running
incompatible software, installing on low spec hardware, using unsigned
drivers, and attaching unsupported peripherals.
