Potkan007, updates appear to cause your problem, yes?
You can now, through process of elimination, uninstall updates that just installed and identify which one or ones are causing your problem. If they are not security related, you can right-click the offending one or ones and hide update or updates.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

After a few tests searching for HD failure or viruses of any sorts without any findings, I decided to go back and install an image I did when everything was fine and since then I am a happy camper. I just had to reinstall a bunch of programs and updates since the image was several months old, no big deal.
Hey gobbetto, thanks, I think that's just what I'm going to have to do. It will be an inconvenience but probably the best option right now.

Glad to see all those posting on this thread are finding resolve to their issues.
May want to try a restore point, if it works, prior to your issues.
Set Win Update to Download but let me choose to install them. That way you can selectively eliminate the offending update(s)
Regular backup, whether it's full, differential or incremental, is always a wise and prudent practice!
It's not a matter of IF, but WHEN you'll need it.

Happy Computing!
