Updates Blue Screen

I just ran a large update for Windows 7 stuff.

It had 11 different updates for Office 2007 plus SP2, and there was 360 controller and nvidia driver updates. I got it all downloaded, it got to installing the update for outlook, and i got a blue screen, and then it rebooted.

Whats the deal. I haven't seen that screen in years...

Did you get an error message and write it down or remember what it was?

My guess is it was probably the Nvidia drivers.

For a company that allegedly has amazing drivers, it is unfortunately one of the key causes of blue-screens on Vista/Win 7 systems.

Check your drivers. I would tell you to check the NvNews forums but unfortunately they are down at the moment. Maybe check them tomorrow.

I believe I was installing 3 of 14, which was the outlook update. I don't believe it was done the Nvidia drivers yet. I will try updating everything again, but leave out the Nvidia drivers.

*edit

The Shutdown button had the Update Icon on it, so I hit that, but it only Shutdown, so I restarted and went to Windows Update, the only update now is an Optional Nvidia Driver.
Looks like the SP2 update is installed, just does not feel like it was done right. Oh well.

Thanks guys. I will try updating Nvidia drivers outside of Windows Update.

first of all, where did you get this copy of windows 7 and is it legit? If not, then that could be the reason.

Have you tried "WHO CRASHED" on above website to get BSOD info etc......... shows the module /location and named process causing the BSOD or crash in system .
Saves complicated debugging processes being used
That site downloads the symbol files to your PC to check the dump file and Windows 7 RC symbols are not available yet to the general public (only MSDN and Technet subscribers).
You can get the windows 7 beta symbols but not the RC ones so the results may not be correct.

Do you have either a technet or MSDN subscription?

If not, then the version you have from torrents or otherwise may be corrupted. That's what he probably meant.
