Hey guys,

I have always kept up-to-date with windows updates until now. I try to update windows and it will download and install fine. BUT, when ever I go to start windows again it will freeze at the boot menu. I will have to restart and start in safe mode ans UNINSTALL ALL RECENT UPDATES just to get it working.



Any help will be Greatly Appreciated! :whistling:

I am not sure I have a direct answer to that but I have a feeling that there is one update which causes the problem. I would try to identify andf remove it. I would write a note with all the lattest updates. Then I would remove them one at a time from Add/remove program until I hit the one which causes the problem. Then I would download the "good" updates manually from microsoft and install them.

Try omitting KB929338 in the update list. Install the rest. Also how much free space in on your hard drive? You do have SP2 installed and your XP version has passed WGA, correct?
