    Installed windows update (seems to be one every day) and then I had no Bluetooth. No chip. No nothing. It was like the imac had no Bluetooth components. So I used the onscreen keyboard in windows to reinstall windows bootcamp drivers.

    Now I have a blue screen on every boot up and am currently stuck on "Startup repair" attempting repairs screen.

    How in the name of Christ this is the worlds most popular OS ill never ever know. :(

    Follow this guide to uninstall the update(s) that caused the issue. You should be able to narrow it down by looking at the 'Installed On' date.

    Ah, yeah, I somehow missed that part. Yeah, the updates aren't really necessary if you're not using Windows as your primary OS. I'd still use an AV, though. There are a few good ones that are free.
