That's weird, and not at all normal.

So I understand:
* windows update runs (does it reboot?)
* you try to start S3D and it will not respond, not do anything? No error messages?
* you are using the latest version of S3D, correct?

If it does not reboot itself, do you reboot before trying to run S3D?
It almost sounds like the infamous DLL Hell situation, where a required shared library keeps getting overwritten. Make sure you are indeed running the latest S3D code available, and have a look in the WIndows Event Log for clues.

Why not take a read through some of the results of this search: search.php?st=0&sk=t&sd=d&sr=posts&keyw ... e&start=20

I'm sure its worth trying some of the suggestions made when this issue has happened previously.....
