Yeah I read that but I didnt understand if the one that is already logged into my windows update sitting there before the crash is the bad one? The KB3000850 is said to be a problem?

"An emergency update was released yesterday.

The current solution for those affected is to uninstall KB3000850 this should revert the system back to normal
Run an update on Avast which will install the new driver
Then you can install the update again "

I wouldn't remove it from the queue. It's the November rollup update. Kind of like a service pack but it doesn't change the version number or deprecate APIs. https://support.micr....com/kb/3000850

 

As Essexboy said, Avast! has patched the issues with this update. If you've updated Avast! to the latest version then you should be safe to reinstall this Windows update.

It's your computer, buddy. You can do what you want to with it, no one is forcing you. I'm just letting you know that Microsoft is recommending that you install it and that you should be ok to do so now that all of the conflicts have been resolved.

Best of luck.
