    I am using windows 10 and am accepting all updates, patches etc.

    from memory I have an i7 5820K on a X99 Pro and a 980ti..
    3 Monitor setup

    1 2 3
    ACER-------SAMSUNG--------ACER

    One of the updates I get makes my computer pretty much unusable, so I format and start again..

    To elaborate on unusable I mean..
    The computer boots, POST fine. etc.

    As the login screen opens my monitors turn off (1&3) 2 stays on but leaves black screen.

    Ive tried going back into windows setup and unistalling the update but windows says it cant... every option that invloves 'undoing' .. that I can find... doesnt work...

    sooo..
    currently trying to disable windows 'bloody' updates... have tried services.msc - windowsupdate stop.. disabled.. but keeps coming.. have tried GPEDIT etc.
    tried ..

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU

    DWORD val 2
    still no success..

    basically.. id like to.. Install all updates windows throws at me.. but i cant because of above...

    any help please ?

    Might be a driver update? You can block individual updates with this troubleshooter: http://download.microsoft.com/downlo...owhide.diagcab

    If you know exactly which update is causing it, that would let you block just that one update.
