Hmm, no they really shouldn't have this sort of impact you are getting. However it's fine to run without them for the time being.

Well, I will give it a try with the Security updates.. Let's se the list. KB971468, KB972270, KB974571, KB975467, KB975560 & KB978251. 6 in total.. we will give it a few weeks to see if this is stable

Fingers crossed

Uninstall through the Control Panel option for installed service packs.
If it does occur again, instead of attempting to uninstall the updates themselves, try using a restore point.

Unlike XP, restore points work a hell of a lot better now. By rights, this should revert your system back to the state it was before installing the updates. It could potentially you save a lot of time by not having to re-install over and over.

Windows creates an automatic restore point by default before installing updates, but these automatic restore points get deleted over time, so it may be more beneficial to manually create a restore point before installing further updates.

The advantage of this method is that you can name the restore point for easier identification and these points are not automatically deleted.

To manually create:

type 'create' in the search bar and select 'Create a Restore Point' and then select Create

To Restore:

type 'restore' open System Restore, tick 'Show more restore points' to see and select the manually created point and then follow the prompts.

You could also create a full system backup image, but restore points are much quicker.

As for the crash dump.. if I run into problems I will definitely link back to this thread and see about how to do that minidump option. Is there anything that I would need to setup on my end so that this dump is automatically generated, or is windows setup to do that automatically?

Thanks for the help.

Not a problem Matt, and there's nothing you need to set as Windows automatically generates a full crash dump (all the current contents that were loaded in memory at the time of the crash) in C:\Windows and a 'minidump' in C:\Windows\minidump

Good luck and fingers crossed :)
