My server is a DC with Windows 2003 R2 and Exchange 2007.  After last nights automatic updates my server hangs at Applying Computer Settings.

I tried Last Known Good Config and cannot login to Safe Mode w/ Networking.

Anyone else have this problem following last night's updates.

    It was Trend Worry Free that was the problem.  Had to uninstall then reinstall.  Thanks!
