    If you're really convinced it's an update, then uninstall them one by one,
    checking to see if the problem changes.
    It's not likely to be an update per sae, but an update could have exposed
    some other problem that has now become noticeable. I suspect that's what you
    might end up looking for.
    Be prepared to put a good amount of time into troubleshooting, or best
    IMO, restore your your boot drive from the backup you made just before you
    left town. Then you can instal the updates one at a time and watch for
    problems. Assuming you have such a thing of course.

    HTH,
