What sort of problems? Why do you believe it's related to the latest updates?

Because, before new updates were installed, computer was fine, now, after new updates, computer is acting strange. I tried uninstalling them and computer is functioning much better. Computer is running better, but updates are back, waiting on taskbar, advice, ideas?

Install the Updates in small groups, then check PC performance. When/if you get to a performance drag, then you will know one of the updates you just installed is causing it. Isolate it from there.

Are you uninstalling the updates via Programs and Features in the Control Panel?

Go to Control Panel>System and Security>Windows Update. There should be a link to the updates that are available. Click on it, uncheck the boxes next to the updates, then click OK. That will prevent the updates from re-installing.

I found myself to be having the same issues (as far as my laptop not having any problems a few days ago and now the updates have wrought havoc). I uninstalled as many of the updates as I could (the updates from Office are not uninstalling) and I am still having the same issues. Any advice?

Unfortunately, not all Office updates are removable once installed, and those that can be removed must be removed using Add or Remove Programs and Features in the Control Panel -- you can't remove them from the Windows Update section. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/903771

 

Please provide more details on the sorts of issues are you having.

win 7 let me remove mine and I unchecked them, they had already re-installed. I took all out but a couple and things seem fine. I set the updates so that I can look at them first, looks to me, they are looking beyond W7.

Today, My Secunia PSI 2.0, was showing some problems, which indicated the need for windows updates to be installed, I installed them 1 at a time til Secunia was satisfied, Computer seems to working fine. First time I ever had problems with windows updates. Secunia is a great free program if you do not have it.
