Windows 7 Freezes after latest Windows Update

This has happened randomly and not during any specific work - PLEASE help! I work as a DJ and use my laptop for the playout system so imagine my horror last night when it happened during a live gig with 1,000 people on the dance floor - it was murder! LOL!

If you still get the freezing, then it was caused by something else, and you should reinstall the update. We would then try to figure out what is causing the freezing.
If you don't get freezing....well, I would try to reinstall the update anyway. If you get freezing again, then we know for sure that's what it was...and we'll figure something out....you shouldn't have an unpatched system, but if you can't use it patched, what good does it do you?!

Well, if you get freezing again, we'll have to see what we can figure out to do about that update....Let me know...
Thanks for your reply - I uninstalled the update and used the comp for the last 24 hours without a hitch! The problem is sporadic so this isn't conclusive but so far no problem with the computer. I've now reinstalled the patch and I am anticipating another 'freeze' any minute!!

Just a thought; make sure you are not doing anything else with your computer when you download a KB anything. Always use I.E.
Good point... I probably had my media server running in the background, now that I come to think of it.
Well.. as far as an update on computer stability... I uninstalled the security fix and restarted which caused the computer to immediately freeze; then restarted again and haven't had a freeze since. Here's hoping that was the problem.
