Re: Blue screen after updates
I had the same problem after I installed Vista x64. I would receive the BSOD that pointed to either tcpip.sys or netio.sys. It turned out to be "Update KB938371". I had to restore my system to any point before that update was installed. It worked fine after that. I've installed all other updates and am now only having a few errors. Still getting the BSOD, but now for other reasons and not so often. I also change the automatic update to only notify me when their are new updates. That way, I won't have any surprises. I hope this helps.
If you are still getting BSODs then your problems are not over. I don't get BSODs, unless you count the Virtual Machine systems I purposefully infect with malware to test an antimalware product, or when I am playing around with OCing.
Also, System restore only changes registry entries and settings, not files themselves - so the files that were installed by that update are still on your system.
