My laptop starting crashing after installing a bunch of Windows updates (it's a new laptop). I had to format the hdd and re-install Windows 7. The I selected a handful of updates to run at a time and eventually it crashed again, so went back and removed those updates. I've posted a screen shot (see link below) of the available updates and was wondering if anyone knew if some of them might be problematic? Computer is running fine now, but I haven't been installing any updates. What should I do?

Well, the only way to know for sure which one is causing it is to install 1 update, reboot, install next update, reboot, etc...until either you have them all installed (Yay!) or the computer crashes. If it crashes, you know which update caused it because it was the last one you did.
