Black Screen with Cursor, Ctrl+Alt+Delete doesn't work. After updates.
Sep 25, 2011, 11:17 AM
Running windows 7 build 7600, no SP1.
Here is the list of updates that got installed.
I'm functioning via safe mode at the moment, so I would really appreciate a fast answer.
I've tried the shellfix.reg, fixshell.exe, and I've also tried disabling my graphics card drivers (That were updated several minutes before)
Unable to uninstall them because i can't uninstall things in safe mode.
Also, no restore points, And I have tried F8 -> Windows Repair.
Currently burning a windows 7 install disk to repair as well. Hopefully that'll do the trick.
UPDATE; Found the fix to uninstall and install stuff in safe mode, currently trying a repair of Microsoft .NET Framework 4. Then I will attempt to uninstall the updates after the fix. Wish me luck!

U can run the original DVD and repair from there. Nothing is erased from there.

Alright. Burning it at 4x speed, hopefully it will work this time.
I forgot to format my hard drive so I dont think the program recognized it, or my 16x burning speed missed some files.
