vista update problems


New Member
Hi guys
New to this forum hope you can help.
I did an update yesterday on my vista ultimate 64 with sp1 and my of has gone haywire.
It now takes about 5 mins to load onto the desktop and no services load.
No dhcp no event logger, no internet no nothing. When I try to repair it says dhcp could not be started
Any idea guys?
Thanks in advance.

Had windows update me the following

KB954154 - security updates x64 = Windows Media Player (not use it)
KB938464 - Security Update for Windows XP (might be the reason for the snafu as it is Vista and not XP in use)
KB955302 - vista 64 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/955302)
KB890830 - malicious software removal


KB905866 - junk mail
