I just installed my latest updates and lost my Aero. I am running Vista SP2 and am virus/malware free, I assure you. Strange thing though, I had 9 important updates and one of them was unchecked, which was "Update for Windows Vista(KB971029)". The rest of the updates are: Update for IE9 beta(KB2482017), Platform update supplement for Vista(KB2117917), 4 Vista security updates(KB2393802, KB2479628, KB2483185, and KB2485376), Junk E-mail filter(KB905866), and one for the malicious removal tool(KB890830), and they were already checked off. I checked the one off, ran the updates, and restarted. I had to run the System Restore to the point right before I installed the updates and got my Aero back. The only thing I did before I installed the updates was download and install Safari to give it a go, so that was the point that I wound back to. I have had Safari many times in the past and wanted to try it out again. I also run Firefox, IE9, and Opera 11, so I doubt it was Safari's fault. So as of now, I have all of those updates to install again, and do not have Safari anymore.
My questions are;
Has anyone heard of a problem with the latest updates, especially the one in question? I couldn't find anything.
Do you actually think it was Safari 5?
What else should I do, as I always keep my system updated?
Thanks very much for your time, I really appreciate it!
