Hi - Try booting the computer in safe mode....just before the OS starts to boot (or just before the progress bar appears) start tapping the F8 key repeatedly.
Once in safe mode go to 'System Restore' and restore the computer to a date just prior to installing the updates.
Hope that works for you....please post back if you are unable to boot into safe mode.
I'm on a desktop computer right now. I recently shut down my laptop and clicked the "Install Updates and then shut down" option. I tryed to turn it on a minute ago and it showed the progress bar, then it showed some weird letters on the screen. They looked like registry keys or something. It never started up fully and now I can't even see a thing on the screen. What did the update do to my computer? Is there a way that I can have Windows pay for this? The only way that I can tell that the computer is on is because of the lights on the keyboard. If anybody can help then I would really appreciate it. My aim screen name is MaNia XxI.
Here are some details about the laptop,
Dell XPS m1530
Windows Vista Home Premium
