Windows 7: Which updates cause black screen with mouse cursor ?

Windows 7 64 bit
Which updates cause black screen with mouse cursor ?


I have just formatted my computer and having a several problems.

First problem is, I get a very slow download speed but a fast upload speed.
(I haven't downloaded my drivers yet but if it happens after driver installation, I'll post a new thread I guess)

The major problem that I have is the "black screen" after windows updates.

I had to restore my computer.

Now, I want to avoid the updates that cause black screen.

Can anyone tell me which one I should not install from my screenshots?

Are you installing all of those at the same time? I have seen suggestions to install the .NET ones separately from the others, although I'm unsure if that is the absolute fix for your issue. I think its worth a try.
