not suprising, i have vista updates disabled because:
microsoft actually puts spyware in the updates!
they usually break things.
go to the control panel, click the system icon, in the left top corner click device manager and look for any orange circles with '!'s in them.
if you see one, right click it and click properties then click update driver.
