Windows 7: BSOD while updating Windows Starter

BSOD while updating Windows Starter


2 days ago, i bought a Netbook equipped with windows starter. I needed a cheap computing solution for college since i only need Word, Maple and Google chrome to make me happy during my free times at school. It's brand new and was equipped with Mcafee internet security 60 days trial which i took cause it was already installed and ready to work, anyway. I received message from windows update which i ignored for the last day since i didn't needed to use my netbook at all. I finally did the update today. And then. Boom. While rebooting, BSOD.(Reminded me of windows 98 and ME since i hadn't seen one in the last 10 years XD ). Memory dump, and rebooting. Then the apparently now famous Windows couldn't boot appeared and they offered me to try to run windows normally or to use the restore. I tried to run it again, which failed. So i did restored but now i'm still with the same problem while updating windows. I have checked on many forums but their similar problems are from 2010. And my netbook has been manufactured not two month ago since it's a new model.

What should i do fellow Windows 7 users?

We need the dumps to see where the problem is so please follow the instructions on this tutorial:

Is McAfee still on trial? If yes, please uninstall and replace with MSE:
Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows

Some specs of your Netbook would also be nice. Use Speccy to find out:
