    IE10 Update Blanks Screen


    Because of the virus news, I just installed 2 IE10 updates. Upon reboot of the Win 8 (x64) machine to finish the update installs, my screen goes black just before the log-in screen. The cursor is all that shows, so I can neither see to log-in nor navigate. Suspect an IE update conflict with my NVIDIA drivers. In my XP days, I would boot into Safe Mode and do a system restore to remove the offending updates, but that doesn't appear to be an option on booting up Win 8. Not interested in Refresh or Reset unless that is the only option as I've of programs, color management files and pro print drivers, so a Refresh will require loads of time for re-installs and settings. Is there any way in from the boot menu in Win 8 to do a system restore or uninstall the offending updates without going the Refresh route? Thanks

    Update on Problem


    Using the win 8 recovery disk, I found a system restore option. But it gives an error... To use System Restore, you must specify which windows installation to restore. Restart this computer and select an O...S..., and then select System Restore" This is on a single boot/OS computer, as it came from the factory. My only boot options are to either go into the BIOS or to select a boot device (USB, HDD, etc). There's no option I can find to select my only OS. Searching on the web, it appears that some recovery disks give the option to change boot settings, but mine does not have that option. Other possibilities?
