Hi, had a load of windows updates after being away, 14 in all on 14/10/10 (XP SP3). They took an age to install. Next day i am unable to use internet explorer, macafee & several other programs. When i try to start them i get a '*** encountered a problem & needs to shut down' message.Other applications start up ok.
Today have lost internet connection all together - router is still connected. Seems to be a problem with pc.
I there a way i can rollback to before these updates? Have tried system restore but just get a choice of drives & cant seem to get any further. Alternatively can i locate them on pc & remove manually?
Also have found a new program - windows powershell 1.0 on the program list, that hadnt noticed before. Could that be causing a conflict?
Any thoughts? Simplicity appreciated as not a bit of a novice.
........in having problems after these updates. The odd thing is, there seem to be so many different snags, but they all seem to be cured by a system restore - generally, a subsequent installation of the updates works OK.
I've just done another system restore and turned automatic updates off until it's sorted. But Media Player tells me I have to reinstall it and the Media Player 12 website says it's not available for download as it's part of Windows 7.
