Or start in safe mode and run System Restore to a old date before the updates

I never install MS Updates, never have and never will. Never had any problems without them.

My advice is to get rid of them as they often cause trouble for some. (But not for all). My son used to download them and install them and he stopped doing it in the end.

Technotiger your help gratefully acknowledged. I had emailed your advice to my daughter on her laptop & she and my son in law confirmed it worked on their pc. Thanks again. Regards
