I try to open it, and it opens the windowm but after 2 seconds i get the error message 'windows explorer has stopped working'. then explorer restarts an i have to start again. ive tried running system restore back to when i installed the update but im still getting the same problem. any ideas?

Boot up to "Last known good configuration" by hitting F8 at bios and uninstall the update. Then set your boot sequence to cd first boot off your Vista dvd and run the "Repair" option.
