Anyone else had a problem in the last few days? Chap gave me his PC to look at. On boot, just the windows scrolling bar. Used a Vista disc to repair. Then booted to Windows, said installing updates stage 3 of 3 then crashed. Repeated, same again. Used the disc to access System Restore, and all now fine.

Just wondering if it was a one off and unlikely to happen again, or whether there is a dodgy update which I need to hide.
