    Downloaded several Microsoft security updates. In the middle of the update
    downloads the system crashed. How should I proceed to remove the updates. I
    can go into safe mode to find the log but I don't know how to uninstall the
    updates. The computer will start up & displays all icons but only getting
    the hourglass figure when trying to click on anything. Essentially the
    computer is locked up. I've erased all the Temp files but new ones keep
    populating the temp files folder. I also deleted cookies & ofline content
    under internet options. Please help. Thanks.

  2. Try starting with Last Known Good Configuration on the Boot Options screen.
    It is the same screen you use to get Safe Mode.

    Thanks for the idea - that was my 1st move. I tried that immediately after
    the freeze up but it unfortunately didn't work. I also tried to restore the
    system as of a date I knew was good but that didn't work either.

    After dumping my temp folder several times & clearing my cookies & deleting
    offline content the Last Known Good Configuration worked. Thanks for helping
    out. I guess if you don't succeed try & try again. Thanks buddy.

  5. Too late. Once you log in, even in safe mode, last known good is gone.

  6. Actually, it's probably the cleaning out as much as anything. I'd take a
    good snapshot before you add the updates again.

  7. No, it worked for me after an Avast update screwed up windows explorer to
    the point it kept breaking. This was just yesterday. I had logged in a
    number of times before resorting to LKGC. LKGC still resolved the issue
    satisfactorily.

    My simular problem is that a security update installed and rebooted my system
    at night. When I came in the next morning I had a log on screen. I dont use a
    password so I just hit enter and the system locked up. After powering down a
    couple of times I used my mouse to hit ok. This got me in but as soon as I
    hit a key on my keyboard the system loked up again. I got back in and
    restored my system to the previous week and things worked fine untill I
    rebooted my system then it all started all over again.

  9. Is there any chance you might be able to divulge exactly which version
    of windows you are using? There are about a dozen varieties currently
    in use and if you desire assistance with your situation it is essential
    to know exactly which version of Windows you need help with.

    You can uninstall updates by going to 'installed updates'. If you are
    having a problem with one constantly being installed, turn off automatic
    updating and select another option. If you know which one, choose notify
    and then do not install that one, but you can install any others that are
    not causing you a problem.
