  • I would suggest rolling your computer back using system restore.

    I would roll it back to before you installed the system updates that are causing the affliction.

    use the system recovery disc that came with the PC to do so. Also, depending on the manufacturer, on startup, press F8 repeatedly to get to the system restore.

  • Hi,

    Please press and hold the F8 key* early in the system boot process. Then select the Repair your computer option from the boot menu that appears.

    If Windows RE is not installed or is unable to boot from the internal drive, access it as follows:

    Insert your installation media -> Press a key when the Press any key to boot from CD or DVD message appears -> You will be prompted to select a Language to install, Time and currency format, and Keyboard or input method.  Configure each of these settings and then click Next. -> Click the Repair your computer option

    Then, choose System Restore to fix this issue.
