    Your first step would be to try System Restore.

    • Restart the computer.
    • As soon as the BIOS is loaded begin tapping the F8 key until the Advanced Boot Options menu appears.
    • Use the arrow keys to select Repair your computer and hit the Enter key. If Repair your computer is not in the menu please let me know.
    • Select US as the keyboard language settings, and then click Next. If you know your keyboard is for another language then select that from the list.
    • The system will scan for installed operating systems. Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.
    • Select your user account and click Next. If there is only one user account this will go straight to the System Recovery Options.
    On the System Recovery Options menu you will get the following options:
    Startup Repair
    System Restore
    Windows Complete PC Restore
    Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool
    Command Prompt

    Select System Restore, the Update should have created a Restore point, try that one and let me know how it goes.

    If Repair your Computer is not in the menu then please tell me if you have access to another Windows 7 PC with the same bit rate (32bit or 64bit) as your system.
