I am getting a "xxx has stopped working" error every time I try to open certain programs. I ran Avira and got no warnings. Can't run Malwarebytes or Superantispyware because they give me the error. Logitech update and skype are a couple of other examples of programs that won't run. Some programs open okay, but most give me the error.

I installed a Windows update right before this happened. It was a gigantic one, with like 100 items and took about half an hour. I recently reinstalled Windows a few weeks ago and I thought maybe this was the first update since I did so maybe that's why it was so huge, but it seemed odd. I tried system restore, but it gives me an error when my computer restarts saying it can't start Windows and I have to undo the restore.

Windows 7 64bit
intel i5-2410M CPU 2.3 GHz
8GB Ram

Thank you for your help.

I suggest you to uninstall / rever back the all Windows update which you have downloaded. Uninstall the windows updates from add/remove tab- control panel.

Thanks. It was an old IE update that was causing it. Gone now.
