Well first of all I'd just like to say I am so jealous of the seemingly endless supply of people who have had no problems with 7! I've had nothing BUT problems from day one.

The other day my computer installed updates as usual (in the middle of the night - why is the default setting 3AM?!) and I've been having problems ever since. I do remember at one point possibly before the updates my video drivers crashed or something - the display had multicolour lines over it and needed a hard reboot. Everything seemed okay until the updates, but I cannot get the PC to stay on long enough for me to uninstall the updates. I did try to remove them in safemode, but Windows Update just wouldn't open, the process didn't start or anything... When I boot normally, it will stay on fine for maybe a minute and then blue screen. Some of the bluescreens I've had have been ntfs.sys (scary), system service exception and video drivers failed to initialize. Did try to do an antivirus scan in safemode with Avast but it bluescreened about a minute in. I'm just wondering if its worth trying to troubleshoot first or whether I should just reinstall.

Not sure what computer info would be relevant here and obviously I'm unable to give a log as my PC won't stay on, but if it helps I believe I have an asrock K10N78 mobo with 5GB RAM, HD6670 graphics card, AMD Quad Core processor (not sure what one). If you need any more info I'd be glad to try and provide it.

Thanks in advance.
