Windows Update = Looping BSOD

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Well after my last BSOD problem on startup Here, I decided to re-install since I haven't in a while anyway. Now I have Vista running and of course, there are about 50 updates to download, but everytime I install them, upon restart I get a BSOD that doesn't even fully load up before it restarts, continuously, can't get into safe mode, Last Known Good Config won't even boot. So my only option is to boot to the Windows disc and do a system restore. I've had to do this a few times, each time deleting a few updates, especially those pertaining to drivers, but still BSODs, I guess I could just leave my PC unpatched forever...but if anyone knows whats going on, I'd appreciate the help.

It might run better without, but I would like the security updates, in the mean time I'm not checking any updates that say optional or recommended.

EDIT: All important updates installed without a hitch, no BSOD!!! Maybe I'll only install important updates from now on. Also now that those were installed, I'm getting a new Important update that says its one of the updates you need to install before getting SP1, but I thought SP1 wasn't out yet, and I haven't done any registry hacks to get it yet...
