I have windows home premium running fine no problems until the latest update. The update seemed to hang up. I guess I made the mistake of shutting down the computer. It seemed to move forward with the update but then got hung up again. I shut the computer down again and now it starts with the start-up flash but then just dies and the screen goes blank. If I try to start into safe mode, it goes as far as the start-up for safe mode, but then it shuts down. I've tried restore to a previous configuration from the F8 menu, that doesn't work, I've tried a repair also from F8 and that doesn't work. I tried booting from the installation disk and windows starts, but then as soon as the windows logo shows, it pauses and then the screen goes blank. I'm lost, any ideas?

Have you tried removing the updates and installing them one at a time to see which one is causing the problems? I am not aware of any widespread issue that these updates have been causing - one is simply an update to a previous security update for Internet Explorer, and the other fixes a vulnerability in Print Spooler.

Try removing them, seeing if the problem still exists, then install the updates one at a time, testing between. This will help us narrow down which update precisely is causing your problems.

It was a dead SSD. Sent the SSD back to Kingston, still under warranty and was able to restore everything from a backup. The Windows update was a coincidence.
