Hi Yinon and welcome to Windows 7 Forums

Very few people know this, because most people with not to speak with "Technical Support" via phone, but call 1800-642-7676 (1800-Microsoft) and possibly get Assistance that way. Issues caused by or related to Windows Update are 100% free.

This comes in handy for other issues as well. Just tell the Tech-Rep that "After a Windows Update, I experienced an issue".
