OK, I tried to run Windows update on my desktop after reading about the new updates here today. They ran fine on this machine (notebook) and my Vista laptop. The desktop failed to load. That is when I got a lockup and can't get the machine to do anything after the Welcome screen. Cursor moves but can't click on anything and get a response. Can't get Task Manager up by the Control,Alt Delete or right click in toolbar area. Nothing.

And now these other machines seem real slow after the updates. What has MS done to us now?

My above problem may be related to an AVG update also.

Help!

Wait until this topic is complete: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic367896.html

Then PM a moderator to reopen this if still needed.
