    Blue screen after updates

    i just installed Vista ultimate 64 and all the updates.. but it gave me a blue screen when it was loading windows after reboot. and this just kept going.

    Re: Blue screen after updates

    When you install Vista x64, do you install your drivers immediately? And then, after SP1 gets installed, do you check your drivers and make sure all are OK?

    SP1 tends to not play nicely with drivers that are not the absolute latest....

    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.

    Hi, dangermousesc, and welcome to the forums.

    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.
