Windows 7: Updates issue.

Updates issue.

Okay, so yesterday I ended up with the whole Logon with black screen issue.
I did a clean install of my previous Windows Vista Home Premium..then upgraded to 7.

I was wondering if it was possible that an update did this?

I have read other forums and stuff saying that updates had done things and screwed or changed your windows 7 and created errors and what not.....

If so, what updates can cause things like this?

Possible. But every time Updates are installed it sets a Restore point which can be restored from booted Win7 DVD or Repair CD. System Restore

Make sure you have enough space apportioned for SysRestore so that more points hang around longer. Rightclick Computer>Properties>Advanced options>System Protection>Configure and set disk space for restore points up to 20% or more.

Updates have been known to cause problems on some computers.

It may be a good idea in future to have Windows Update notify you only when new updates are available. You can then choose to download a few at a time to note if a problem occurs.
Always make sure you have a current system restore point created prior to downloading...
