The only way to get the monitor to function normally is to reset Vista to its last known good configuration. Any ideas on how I can get to it to uninstall it? on reboot, everything works fine for a week or so the wham, it happens again.

I'm not trying to install the VSP2 or WS 2008 SP2 and don't receive that error. bobszon Thank You, Thank You, THANK YOU! Do we install or not? I wonder if I should print this out and just give it to them or something.
nelsonb Bought a new HP Pavilion dv6 a month ago after old Toshiba died. But here are some: KB973874 KB970653 KB969058 KB968389 KB967190 There are too many to list and I can't copy and paste. I have a newly purchased Sony Vaio that started Blue Screen crashing after Aug 27 whenever I unplugged a USB device. Will let you know how it goes.

Techerator is now on my favorites list and will be my first stop for technical assistance. I have a Dell Inspiron and this started a few days ago but this fixed it, I really hope this update is fixed soon! Came downstairs to discover the new computer in a reboot loop after a BSOD.

Was having the same problem on my Dell 14z. Step 8: When your computer has restarted, click the Start Menu and type Programs and Features in the search box.

After fixed the problem, I turned off automatic update but my computer still telling me I have important update (KB970653) dated Aug 25.
