Windows 7: Computer acting strange after update yesterday

Computer acting strange after update yesterday

Since getting my Windows update yesterday (4/12), there has been a change in behavior. Whenever I try to click on any windows at the bottom, sometimes they won't open if I have one up. I have to hit the show window button at the bottom right to be able to bring up anymore windows again.

Whenever I use photoshop anything I try to edit jumps or skips. Sometimes the pictures "disappears" until I hit close, and then everything pops up again.

It was as if the update messed with my display drivers, which are all up to date.

Any ideas?

Hello MM mate just doa ssytem rstore to before those updates and see if the problem goes away.

Right now the updates are in my mind in a state of disarray with all the 10 stuff going on, and I don't personally install any updates at all unless I know exactly what they are for and to do that is very time consuming so in general I just ignore the nagging.

Just in case you are interested if you are not keen on having 10 installed just yet then run the batch file from this Upgrade to Windows 10 Update - Enable or Disable in Windows 7 or 8.1 - Windows 10 Forums

and I use this to keep the 10 files from being on my machines Ultimate Outsider - Software Downloads I just install the GWX Control Panel - nothig else - and after the initial setup work is done I just check each day (I have the GWX on my desktops) to keep the stuff at bay because there is a lot of 10 files that come through with what look like innocuous updates see pics
