Windows updates or AV first

Doing a restore via recovery partition

If you're going to be connected to the Internet while updating Windows, I prefer having an active anti-virus suite protecting my computer. Others may disagree.

Thanks you two for your input
I figured the antimalware should be first
Doesn't matter now the restore failed and now I have nothing but a cycle of bsod and windows error
(windows failed to start)
