Microsoft Update Problems RRS feed

  • Question

  • About every forth of fifth update makes my computer almost unusable. Clicking on the Start button or moving a window will cause both screens to start blanking and redrawing repeatedly. This normally happens after the computer has been sitting idle for some time but sometimes it happens right after booting. I had to turn off the screen saver because it would always lockup the screens after a short time. I've updated the video drivers but that made no difference. The system has not had the OS reloaded from scratch sense the computer was new two years ago from Dell. The system is a Dell E6400 (2.13 GHz, 1660FSB) with a NVIDIA GeForce 7900 GS dual DVI card.
    So maybe the first thing to try would be to reload Windows XP, but is there a way to download the latest version with all or most of the updates.
    I've talked with other people who have had the same type of problems so the question is how to I start fixing this problem?
