Hi, so I was doing some updates earlier today to my drivers and uninstalling old programs, updating windows, etc. and when I was done my programs would all crash or not launch at all.
First off here is my specs from dxdiag(Which crashes too)
At first I thought it was just a few like steam and skype and I managed to fix them by putting them into compatibility mode. But it turns out it is alot more. Some programs crash on startup, some crash when I launch them, and some show the login screen and then disappear. But other programs work fine.
I guess I will just post a few off the error details and see if any of you can find a common problem or have any other ideas.
This is Windows System Assement Tool
If you need any info or more examples just ask.
Any help is appreciated!

Do a System Restore.  Use a restore point prior to making those changes.


The old adage "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" applies here regarding the drivers.  Unless there is a issue with a driver you should leave it alone. 

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
