    Running Vista Home Basic after a failed reinstall of XP. I restored all the
    drivers but had some problems with the Nvidia drivers, particularly network
    controller and as such my PC wouldn't detect a wired connection or the
    wireless router. I did a shutdown/ restart and found that internet was back
    up. So i downloaded everything I could from both microsoft and nvidia
    pertaining to Vista stability.

    The problem now is that whenever the automatic updater starts, anything on
    my screen distorts and my system freezes; I'll restart under safe mode and
    everything is fine and then restart normally; the system will be working
    normally but then the same problem will happen randomly without automatic
    updates even doing anything.

    Do I have to go the downloads site and manually d/l and install every single
    vista update there is? there were 34 on the auto update list. man this is
    really annoying, i miss xp...
