I wanted to thank everyone for the great information and discusion in this thread!
We have found that there is only one patch that requires un-installation to resolve the blue screen issue. KB977165 is the patch in question, the other patches do not seem to cause the blue screen behaviour and do not need to be uninstalled.
With that in mind, here's the updated solution steps:
1. Boot from your Windows XP CD or DVD and start the recovery console (see this Microsoft article for help with this step)
Once you are in the Repair Screen..
2. Type this command: CHDIR $NtUninstallKB977165$\spuninst
3. Type this command: BATCH spuninst.txt
4. When complete, type this command: exit
IMPORTANT: If you are able to uninstall the patch and get back into Windows, in order to stay protected you can use the following automated solution which secures your PC against the vulnerabilities that are resolved with KB977165 until you can successfully get the update installed without the blue screens.
Please see the link below for the article describing the vulnerability that is fixed with KB977165 and how you can get protected without installing the actual KB update:
I also wanted to thank maxyimus for the great thread, and LThibx for their participation as well!
If you are not experiencing the Blue Screen on reboot and you have successfully installed the KB977165 update you do not need to do anything.
The only situation in which you need uninstall the update is if you are experiencing blue screens on reboot.
I hope this helps.

Any quick fix to this issue... is this a known issue. This has happened to both my wifes computer and my nephews.
Microsoft can't fix something if
