Windows 7 hangs at "configuring updates" at launch


After I update my computer with these latest updates, the last 11 of them in the list.

My computer will hang on configuring updates on restart, I have left it overnight configuring updates to no result in the morning, it's still on the loading boot screen.

After I system restore using the boot disc I am left with a black screen and a mouse after the update, I then have to restart my computer to safe mode and it properly applies the system restore then I reboot and I am back working 100% only to find That the updates are already installed and my computer wants to restart, after restart of course I am elft with the same problem "configuring updates"

Thank you for reading,
I apologise for my grammar, my English is not the best.

Use the system restore.

For the moment disable windows update.

Uninstall whatever is conflict.

Install just one update at a time restart.

Again and again.

Dont install 2-5 updates the same time.

I did as you suggested and started updating with 1 update at a time and had the same problem, I have however narrowed it down to the following update, this update seems to be causing the problem

Security update for Windows 7 for x64-Based Systems (KB2567053)

Any Suggestions?
Is this update crucial or can I simply hide it?
