OK
now you have had your "rant" about Mcrosoft could you please explain your problem a little more clearly?

Try a System Restore before the updates, then reinstall one update at a time. Reboot each time, & if there's any problem again you'll know which one/s is/are the culprit/s. G

It is there in plain English
to the updates takes out your Modem and conection OP system Vi$ta Modem WebStar Skyline Atlanta EPC2100R2 and ether net is the same

"It is there in plain English" - I couldn't understand it either to be honest.

Have you heard of punctuation? G

"to the updates takes out"
"your Modem and conection OP system"

I'm struggling with the English too.

Are you trying to say that you have a PC running Vista that is connected to the internet via Skyline Cable and a Atlanta WebSTAR EPC2100R2 cable modem?
Then, when processing Microsoft Updates, the PC crashes taking out the cable modem at the same time and this happens both when the PC is connected to the modem by ethernet cable or USB cable?
If this is what you mean, then I know a couple of people who had similar problems and in addition they got freezing on specific web pages that wouldn't clear without a reset of the modem. They changed their cable modems and resolved the problem. So it might not be a Microshaft problem after all.

to this no the computer does not crash.The modem is simply taken out unrecognised. This happens every time there is a security update of mass proportions like the last one.

It seams english ain't quit wot it used to b

:0)

OK lets quit with the "Badger Baiting" now we have figured out what the problem is.

I agree with Crossbow7, system restore and install updates one at a time.

When sorted, set your Updates to "Notify" rather than automatically download and install, this will prevent several updates installing at the same time which is often a cause of this type of windows problem.
