    Can you boot it in safe mode? Then you might be able to open Windows Update, click "installed updates" at the bottom left, and remove the update in question.

    I forgot to reply to this thread that i asked my teacher what was wrong with my computer and i showed him what happened, even when booting into safe mode, which does the same thing. My Teacher said that the update i did corrupted my OS so i had to reinstall an OS onto the hard drive, which i did after i copied over the data i wanted to keep to a usb via a SATA-to-USB cable set. When the data was copied over i just installed XP for Vista gives me too much trouble plus i made it into a multi-boot computer that also has KUbuntu "Dapper Drake" which will let me learn more about Linux. All summed up, was unable to boot, both normally and in safe mode, and had to reinstall everything, making sure the partition was deleted and start from scratch.
    Last but not least, thanks for trying Ent, even if i managed to fix it without your help.:)
