    Those updates seem to have caused some problems. If your system earlier worked, you could

    a. get rid of the updates, Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Windows Update\View update history\Installed updates
    b. type "restore" in start menu, and choose a point before getting the updates

    Neither of these will really solve the problem, but they may get your system working.

    Was the program running ok prior to the updates? Did you run the install as administrator? Do you run the application as administrator?

    might help you. Visual Studio 2005 seems to have compatibility issues with Windows 7 64-bit. Like patcooke writes, do you get any error codes?

    These problems may appear suddenly, and correcting them may be difficult. When uninstalling, you should also get rid of all registry markings. Revo uninstaller is a good tool, but you can add to that by using CCleaner, usually recommended here, or Free Window Registry Repair, which I have used for many years, http://www.regsofts.com/free_registry_repair/registry_repair.htm

    You could also try it in Vista or XP compatibility mode. Or, if you get any message about rights, you could try Take Ownership, http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/add-take-ownership-to-explorer-right-click-menu-in-vista/ --- this one doesn't really apply to your problem, I think.

    But please, give any error codes that appear.
