    Windows 7 January 2011 updates

    Has anyone had problems after installing 'critical' updates for Windows 7 x64 in the last week?

    I have had three systems all running Windows 7 Professional x64 that have died after updates have been installed. One PC lost all of it's shortcut locations for 90% of the programs installed on the PC, including Office and a laptop blue screened every time the 'Windows Key' and 'R' were pressed to activate the 'RUN' dialog box whenever the wireless adaptor was active.

    Anti virus scans were run and came back clean, the event logs all displayed errors regarding a driver failure, these errors appeared immediately after the event logs for the updates having been installed.

    All of this was immediately post update installation and as a result, have had to be re-imaged.

    Can't say I've had those issues, bit I have had two BSOD this week on what has been a rock solid Win7 x64 install following the updates earlier this week.

    Yes. My Windows 7 x64 crashed once after the updates this Tuesday but has been without problems since then.
    Shows up in the event log as Critical ID41 Source: Kernel-power - The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.

    This appears to shine some more light on the issue - Ed's System Admin Blog: Patch Tuesday January 11, 2011 causes BSOD on Windows 7
