I did some Windows updates this morning on my home machine and when it rebooted, I got the error stating it had blue screened. I'm wondering if this is a one time thing that I should dismiss, or if I should just rip out the drivers I installed. I rebooted a second time and didn't get the error.

Here is a screen shot of the Bug Check from Blue Screen Viewer and the drivers I installed as Optional Updates. Also, it said the monitor driver failed to install, but when I go back and recheck for additional updates, it's no longer listed.

I rebooted a second time and didn't get the error.

I would reboot one more time and make sure all comes up fine. And if so, then I suspect you will be okay. If you do have a problem, I would boot into Safe Mode and go to System Restore and pick the Restore Point that was made before these updates.

Then you can reinstall the updates - but perhaps just one at a time for the drivers.

Note it is often better to update drivers in Safe Mode because only basic drivers are in use in that mode.

I rebooted again, with no issues. I'll just attribute it to a random fluke. Thanks Digerati.

Yeah. In my old radio maintenance days, we would call it "FM" - not FM for frequency modulation, the common term for FM radio. But FM for a certain type of magic! :)
