Windows 7: Recent update broke subsystem and GUI

Recent update broke subsystem and GUI

I just did a Windows Update 14-items long and now the taskbar and system buttons have a Win95 look and when I start, I get an error about some service not being able to connect. Looking in the event viewer, it doesn't appear as if anything is wrong, unless:
The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Launch permission for the COM Server application with CLSID
to the user NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM SID (S-1-5-18) from address LocalHost (Using LRPC). This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool.
means something (it applies to DistributedCOM).
I'm running Win7 Starter 32-bit on an Acer AOD255 laptop.

But 2 reboots fixed it. Now I don't know what to think. Maybe another reboot will break it.
