OK so yesterday i gave into windows constantly reminding me i had a huge list of updates wating to download, I havn't let it download any in over 6 months as I'd got my PC really nice and stable and it hadn't crashed since the last time I ran windows update. So yeah, ran update, selected the 60 most important looking patches, and suprise suprise they f****ed up my PC, I tried to run tf2 earlier today and noticed a lot of lag, and even lower fps than usual. Soon after i got the BSOD with the usual driver problem (something i havn't had since i last ran windows updates)

second problem is that since my system restore has always been f***ed I can't go back, and as i dont know the exact codes/names of each update i can't simply remove them all in 'add and remove software'.

Luckily i was just planning on building a new rig very soon anyways. But this has pushed me over the edge, if it wasn't for compatibility and user friendlyness I'd have 'fully' converted to linux ages ago. F*** you microshaft!!!

So I'm gonna be trying to work on removing these updates or simply patching further to get stable again. I will also be building a new gaming rig sometime soon hopefully i just need to finish sourcing £800 for it, so i might wait until i hear about another part time job later this week. So for this week i 'might' not be around as much as usual...we will see, but before long I'll be back with nice new system :P

edit : ok so I've only just realised that in windows 'add and remove software' it has a time stamp for all windows patches, allowing me to scroll through and remove them a few at a time until i get my stable PC back again...but I'll still be getting that new PC before long...

maybe you should get yourself some imaging software, so you can backup your system before trying to update or intall anything fancy.

at work we use "Acronis True Image".

I have Vista and it crashes every 2 days, unless I don't shut it off and it also has a bad habit of BSOD:ing every now and then.
Even more annoying is that it works perfectly normally after the crashes/BSOD:s.
Thank god it hasn't affected TF2 in any way, yet...
I rarely install the updates my Windows keeps whining off, and now I have a good reason to continue doing so  Wink

BECOUSE VISTA SUCKS!

use XP, wait for seven to become stable, jump to seven, profit!

update : removed a few of the updates windows put on my computer, lets see how it  runs now.

Slate, I think I like the sounds of that. I might get that when i build my new rig!!

Sanchez, yep, that's vistaaaar for ya :P

Noob, Indeed i like the sound of win7, But alas new rig will still have to be win xp, cos although win 7 is nice and stable/fast it simply isn't compatible enough for me (even in winxp and 32bit mode). I have too much old software i still want to/need to run, and I could never risk my Sound card not working (as this is worth more than the CPU and GPU in my new rig) and i have heard to many problems todo with sound card drivers for this OS.

But I will swap to win 7 eventually, or when i build then 'next' PC, probably in another year or two if intel keeps to their schedule...
