October 2007 vista updates "MASHED" my computer!!...!
Hi there, A few days ago i was alerted from my taskbar that windows had seven
new updates for my p.c and did i wish to install, i clicked yes. After a few
moments the updates were complete and needed to restart, i clicked yes.
Then...., Well then nothing, the computer tried to restart but just froze on
a black screen but the little cpu light was flashing so i thought this might
take some time to be configured or something, so i went out for a few hours.
When i came back there was no change, so i tried to restart again, but
nothing happened. So i got out my Lap-top (Sony VAIO VGN-AR41L) manual and
proceeded to follow instructions to recover, press F10 on boot up e.t.c. It
didn't work!!!!!! After a few attempts of retarting, which i know is bad it
eventually gave me an option of starting in safe mode e.t.c . I managed to
uninstall the updates even though none of the software reconised my computer,
I have genuine copy of vista home premium that came with this lap-top. Now
the updates have installed again automaticlly and want to restart, what on
earth should i do, i feel i have more problems than can be addressed. It also
seems that my lap-top is running about 50% slower than before, who's
responsible?????

You may well ask who is responsible. For many, myself included, the updates
installed without a hitch. It may be something on your computer that is not
on everybody's Home Premium installation.

For now, let them through, and then do a system restore if everything goes
wrong again.

I had the same problem. After the second time a tried I got a blue screen
and had to install the hotfix in KB941600. After the Cumulative USB update
my computer has been great.

Easy answer, YOU ARE!! Turn the auto installation of the updates and
isntead tell Windows to just 'notify you' that they are ready. Then do
a 'custom' installation and choose those that you want installed.
Uncheck those that are causing your issues.
IMO auto installation of those is one of the biggest problems in
Windows. What if yo uare suing the pc and it is installing updates?
The pc runs slow and you have no idea why is what happens! You blame
the pc and in fact you are correct, except it is your OS. NO I do NOT
recommend anythign but Windows, just set it to the way YOU work not
the way it wants to run. I choose to run the updates, and yes I run
them all, but only when I am done with the pc for the day.
