Computer says a bad patch is preventing computer from starting.If I must do a complete system restore and loose everything, what is this bad patch? So I don't install it.

Hello Stembob, welcome to SF and sorry it took so long. It is very busy here!

6.1.7600.16385 this patch(es) has to do with a usb port/connection. Did you connect / change anything?
Could you fill in System Specs please?

Test if you can boot in Safe Mode? Safe Mode
