1. I suggest you begin troubleshooting using the procedure specified in my "Resolving Disk, Permission, and Cache Corruption" FAQ. Perform the steps therein in the order specified.
2. An errant Startup or Login Item maybe the cause. In this case, it may be a Startup Item or perhaps a third-party kernel extension. My "Troubleshooting Startup and Login Items" FAQ can help you pin that down if an errant Startup Item is causing the problem.
3. It may be that the update did not install correctly. For example, you may have had directory corruption present before you attempted to install the update. If that's the case, or if step 1 above finds issues, even if they are corrected, then an Archive and Install would be in order. See my "General advice on performing an Archive and Install" FAQ. Perform the steps therein in the specified order.
Before installing future software updates, you may wish to consider the advice in my "Installing Software Updates" FAQ. Taking the steps therein before installing an update often helps avert problems and gives you a fallback position in case trouble arises.
