    Looks like its mostly to do with Windows 7, thats causing the problems.

    AND one of the suggestions is to run a certain DISM command -- Oh yeah that will work great for an average user

    Guess making Patches that break W7 is one way for MS to kill it off Bit like they did with XP.

    Turn off your updates. Seven years of updates should be ample.

    I got caught by this update, with Outlook crashing when opening HTML formatted emails. Fixed it by uninstalling the update. I was nervous for a while though as the uninstall required a restart and it was a looong time in the close down phase where it says "do not turn off your computer". It must have taken 20 mins to get through that bit. I actually walked away and left it to stop me succumbing to the temptation to hit rest anyway.
    We are all but temporary files on the great HDD of life.

    Microsoft have re-released a fixed version of that update now so no need to hide it anymore, just check for updates again so your machine picks up the new version.

    I thought it was going to stuff up, because while it was booting after it said something about the registry. But it did boot into windows finally
