More fun with Win 7 and Visual Studio 2010

Tried to install 5 optional updates for Win 7 (one from Dell, a couple of keyboard/mouse related), two fail with no real explanation.

I've been having more frequent problems with my NVidia display drivers (Win 7 64bit Quadro FX 3500). Occasional crashes. White lines across the screen. Microsoft suggests checking for newer drivers. I do. They have an update from 190.38 to 191.0. I install. Blue screen. Restart. Reinstall. Blue screen. OK. enough with that. Back to work I say.

Launch VS 2010. A super helpful error message: The application cannot start.

I try devenv /resetusersettings It opens.

I need a nap.
