WINDOWS 2000 AND MICROSOFT UPDATES

By mtorres7 ·
I have unpredictable hangs and "BSD's" (blue screen of death) at several computers on the LAN (Server 2003).
The last one, was working fine for several months. Last week, I have updated W2K, and activated automatic updates, and there begins the problems with this PC. Service Pack 4 was installed, but there were several updates in the last months that the PC does not have at that time. Is there any known issue with W2K and MS updates?
Please, Help...!!!!

What is in the server's event logs, especially the application and system?

Is this a domain controller?

is this on one-time bsod or now they won't run?
to answer your question, i have server 2k3 here and w2k sp4 wkstations, all on automatic update and no worries. occasionally, i have had a single bsod on a workstation after an update. rebooting solved it so i never did try to track down why it happened...
track down your exact symptoms. send us the bsod error message.
i would begin by updating the bios, mboard drivers (video for sure) printer drivers, update your antivirus software, stuff like that...

There is a number of problems that apply to the updates be it softwae or hardware in most cases that causes a conflict
Use the BSOD as a reference to the problem,you can see what is causing the problem if it's hardware
