Ah, yes.  Automatic Windows update.  We know it well... ;)

I have not run into this problem, myself, but what I'd recommend is, if possible, roll back the updates to see if that fixes the problem.  Unfortunately, some updates can't be rolled back.

I recommend that, going forward, you set your auto update to notify you of updates so you can select which ones you want, and do not allow any updates that affect anything you don't use, and be very careful with those that you select, making sure they can be rolled back if a problem like this occurs.  Too often, a "fix" in one area will break something else.  This has been a notorious "feature" of Microsoft patches for years, and they still have those problems.
