Every time I attempt to allow windows automatic updates to install software distribution 3.0, one of the updates in that distribution causes my windows to load in perpetuity(the black screen with the windows logo where the blue bar is loading). I have to do system restore every time to start my windows normally. Should I just disable automatic updates? However, I would need to know which ones to install manually.

If you want to download Update files and run them manually
without searching all over microsoft.com, you can install the
MS Baseline Security Analyzer, which scans your system,
tells you what's missing and offers downloads to run or save.

It's also very informative generally:

MS BSAnalyzer

ver 2.1.1

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;displaylang=en


Belarc Advisor is a useful tool, for a detailed profile of your computer;
hardware, software, MS Hotfixes, product keys, software licences etc.

It will also tell you which ones are missing.

Thanks for the very helpful program. But I still won't be able to find out which update, is causing my PC to get stuck in the black windows loading screen, with the windows logo.

If you use the Baseline program and download the executables to your desktop and then install one by one,
checking after each install, is it not going to hang on the one which is causing the problem?

I have automatic updates turned off, but then I do remember to check manually every day.

I have to go through like 30 different updates. Gonna take awhile. Hopefully, I can fix it. If that is even the problem. I have to use system restore everytime, in safe mode, to get to the desktop.

Not sure what else to suggest
Perhaps updating windows update agent:

(WSUS distributing 7.4.7600.226 during the last few days:)

x86: http://download.windowsupdate.com/windowsu...agent30-x86.exe

I always try everything.

I have updated windows agent. Using PC doctor, I have successfully passed hard drive, memory and processor tests. I think the problem could be a driver or a windows install.

It is an SP3 problem for sure. I just got to find the update that is not working.

Using system restore, I have rolled back to SP2. I can restart my PC to the desktop no problem. Now I have to methodically install SP3 updates to figure out what is wrong.
