Hi,

My name is Brad. I have a personal computer from Dell with Windows 7 pre-installed that my wife and I  purchased in August, 2010. In early January (last month), after attempting to update a few out of date drivers, my computer began a series of severe BSOD's upon reboot, during browsing sessions, while recording music and while installing Windows updates, and updating Windows Defender. Crash after Crash. Especially when trying to install AMD drivers. I found this article this evening after 2 months of this, day after day, trying to figure this out...

http://www.forbes.com/sites/jasonevangelho/2014/12/13/new-windows-7-patch-is-effectively-malware-disables-graphics-driver-updates-and-windows-defender/

I'm not certain this is my issue, but both my AMD driver and Windows Defender has been indicated in most of my crashes and the "patch for the patch to a patch" has so far failed in my computer. I have a fresh install of AMD driver 13.9 on my computer now and will not let it sleep or shutdown for any length of time. I check for Windows Updates myself and I just restart every couple of days. I know I will need repairs, perhaps even a fresh install of W7 or a new graphics card, but of course my graphics card is very old anyway (2007). I hope this article helps those who are having similar issues with Blue Screens of Death. It confirmed my suspicions, but only opened up more questions for me and my wife.

The dreaded update KB 3004394 has reappeared, and installed itself on the 24th. I attempted to uninstall it using elevated command prompt by typing in "wusa /uninstall /kb:3004394 /quiet /norestart", but still it was under recently installed updates. This really acts like a virus. BSOD's for months now, and it all appears to be tied to this one update from hell.

:guitar: too bad, this computer is my home studio, cause I rock!

Did you go to installed updates then uninstall from there? You can hide update next time by right-clicking if ever its offered again.
