I'd start with a System Restore back to before the installation of these two updates. Depending on the things you downloaded (all official Windows updates do) they might even have their own uninstall, and that would be even better.

Can you tell more on what exactly you downloaded?

And from where?

There might be other mechanisms to go back (if these updates are the cause of the problem, which isn't sure to me, at the moment) but that really depends on what these updates are.

Did You Try Uninstalling The Updates?
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / February 1, 2007 1:14 AM PST

Per Kees' previous instructions, did you look in the Control Panel/Add-Remove Programs section? If the specific update is listed there, try uninstalling them.

Hope this helps.
