I don't know what happened. But uuuh...

Last night I'm going to bed and noticed my pc was updating so I waited a couple a of seconds, restarted and headed to bed. Wake up my pc this morning it's stuck at "Starting Windows" so i wait about 10mins... still stuck. So I try the windows start fix that didn't work, so I just system restored to 2 days ago. For some reason my intel hd program is gone and now I have intel control center and my sleep mode and hibernate mode are greyed out?(can't click on them)... everything else is fine Oh Yeah! my system STILL won't boot regularly i have to system restore to get it to load. Anyway here are the updates :


If you have any info on this PLEASE help, I would greatly apreciate it!

I had a similar problem with a Vista. 2nd week of April I downloaded a bunch of MS updates and then my PC would not boot. I too had to do a system restore to get it to boot back up, but as soon as I installed the MS updates it would fail again. When failing, the boot up process makes it all the way to the point where you see the mouse pointer,... then before you see the welcome screen it would reboot. By process of elimination, I was able to narrow the problem updates down to kb2506223 and kb2506212. (which are 2 of the ones you listed) I hope this info helps you, but unfortuneatly for me, I am stuck. After I installed kb2506223 and kb2506212, all of my system restore points disapeared. (so now I can't go back and simply unselect those updates) I tried to use Linux to undelete the files but no joy. I also looked up the KB on MS website and tried to manually un-do the files it updated but no joy there either.

Any help would be appreciated.
