    Hi All

    I have had windows 7 64 bit ulitmate for the last 2 yrs with no problems untill i installed the latest update when all hell broke loose.

    problem 1. mouse keeps disappering

    problem 2 i get disconnected from the wifi modem

    problem 3 some for the games drop out after running for a couple minutes and places the game in the bottom tool bar

    problem 4 frequent blue screens on startup.

    when i spoke to tech support they want to charge me $149.00 to repair these problems. I have now spoken to NSW Fair trading about this matter. They say they have had a lot of enquires about this matter and the department are looking into it.

    does any one have a answer for this problem.

    I have now installed linux as a second OS and every thing is running fine but windows is still giving problems when i switch to windows

    Many thanks

    Richard

    If you know for certain which the update causing problems is -which was it-, you can undo it from Control Panel\System and Security\Windows Update\View update history

    I would however advice to first check Restoration Points at Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Recovery - I find that to be more reliable. It will also notify you which programs may be inflected.

    Best of all.

    I think MS had a bad update earlier this month then issued a fix for it. Try checking Windows Update.
