Windows update spanked PC

Has anyone else had issues with Windows Updates!!

I ran some updates and it has toltally messed things up.

All the nvidia drivers.....chipset, graphics and network failed.

I tried to role back the drivers but when i boot i just get a blank screen.

I have booted in Safe mode and removed all traces of Nvidia, downloaded drivers straight from Nvidia and tried loaded them.

Now when i boot i get a desktop but no functionality, as if Explorer.exe had been stopped.

Also i got stereo server fail with the Nvidia graphics drivers.

Well its all miffed me off a tad. Any ideas what the hell is going on

vista updates are a pain in the rear to get uninstalled my laptop got killed by one before when it automatically updated to sp1, i think it was because my laptop has ddr 3, anyway i had to go into safe mode and change a dll file in my system folder.

I'm going to hunt about and find a restore point. I installed SP2 recently and i know that a restore point is always made before an SP is installed.
