BSOD, updates windows

I got a BSOD about a week ago, and I am terrified that this may happen again. I was reading somewhere and it was stating that a recent update windows could be the culprit. So if that is true would some one tell me which update that was and I will remove it. I thought the BSOD caused by Malwarebytes pro. so I uninstalled it I do not know if I am doing the right thing or not. see captures   Thanks

If you install updates automatically, it should have fixed itself by now.

I have seen different articles. I got KB2982791 on August 12 which was a botched update. I uninstalled in on my Windows 8.1 machine when the article first appeared (prior to Aug 19). Then a bit later, KB2993651 appear in Automatic updates. I allowed it to update and all seems fine at this point.

I also uninstalled KB2982791 on my Windows 7 machine at the same time and updated to KB2993651 at the same time.

I hope this helps.

If you can run the computer, go to Windows Update (Action Center), Installed Updates, find it in the list and uninstall it. Then restart and allow Automatic Updates to install the new one.

I am not sure if this is the cause of your blue screen, but it possibly is.

Add far add I know all MS updates have been fixed  <-- Most unfortunately, Microsoft has said that KB2982791 should be uninstalled before installing KB2993651, even if the first update appeared to be OK. It is a mess.

But kb2993651 may also have problems

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2993651

To confuse matters even further, not all Win 7 users have the problems reported.  I fortunately did not.
Anyway I uninstalled both  KB2982791 and KB2993651 .  Rebooted which went OK and was immediately notified by Windows Update to install  KB2982791 .  Gullible as I am, I installed it and rebooted which went OK.  (I do not plan to add Fonts or use the ruble character.)

Once again I already see the latter update listed KB2993651, you said uninstall KB2982791, how do I do that and do I uninstall the kb 2993651 as well. does windows reinstall these 2 updates on it's own? what do these updates include how do I find out?

As I noted, go to Windows Updates, Installed Updates and remove (uninstall) KB2982791. You will have to restart from there.

Once restarted, make sure Automatic Updates is ON and wait a couple of days. Auto Update should then tell you an update is waiting. Amongst possibly others, KB2993651 should be waiting.

I have installed KB2993651 on several machines including both my own and so far no issues. I read about possible problems, so we may be in the same mess again.

You may find it easier to uninstall both KB2982791 and KB 2993651 from Control Panel|Programs and Features|"View installed updates".  They will be listed by date in the Microsoft Windows section (down a ways).  Then right click on each separately and you will be offered "Uninstall".  As mentioned in my post above, I was offered to install KB2993651 almost immediately after reboot.

Yes that is a correction to my post above.  You will be offered  KB2993651-- not KB2982791

If your minidump folder is empty, there's something funny going on. I would not worry about a single bluescreen, by the way - if it happens again in less than let's say a month, then you should be worried. I don't think the windows updates are the culprit, but we cannot say for sure as long as the minidump files are not there for diagnosis.

I got a bsod previously. how do I fix the minidump folder to show information there

joinaunionCommented:
Yes this will display new drivers. Install any new drivers that the utility finds.
http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/detect

Typically error 1033 is a driver error.

Have you installed any new drivers or windows updates.

The minidumps should show, there's nothing to fix. Please invoke bluescreens using this and see if that folders gets populated: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/ff545499(v=vs.85).aspx

try accessing and copying the minidump file when booted from a live cd, like Knoppix :
http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=knoppix

you can also copy the file with this disk connected as slave to another PC

"I highlighted the update right click it only says copy details or view details it does not allow me to unistall "

You are looking in the wrong place*.  That is why I posted my earlier instructions
Control Panel|Programs and Features|"View installed updates".  The two updates will be listed by date in the Microsoft Windows section (down a ways).  (It takes several seconds for the Microsoft Windows section to load..)  Then right click on each separately and you will be offered "Uninstall".  

Once you uninstall one, you will be asked to reboot.  Do not reboot until you uninstall the second.  This really is very simple.

*The wrong place is Windows Update|View Update History.

Yes.  So, the next time you access Windows Updates see if KB 2993651 is offered.  When it is you probably will want to install it.  
KB2982791will not be offered and you do not want it.

I have Windows Updates set to "Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them " .  You might want to consider that.

Just wait and see.  If you never are offered it, I would not worry.  The main thing is whether your BSOD's have stopped.
