Windows 7: Fully updated Win 7 SP1 will not boot after shutdown

So I did everything and the performance is working great. I even used Memtest86, to check my memory, and it didn't come up with any errors as far as I could tell. I also looked up a few tweeks for using windows 7 with an SSD and went through those. (SSD Tweaks and Optimizations in Windows 7
I have already made another recovery disk, and am backing up the system now. I'm going to start installing my old programs on it, and hopfully everything continues to work properly. I will let you know how it turns out.

So i installed a lot of my programs, excluding utorrent and avg (using windows essentials). I was able to run Torchlight 2 really well, no issues at all. Starting to get everything right. Then I shut down because i had some updates to install (forgot to check what for but I have already installed win7 SP1) and on reboot had the usual problems. Tried recovery CD and nothing happening. So I ran MemTest86 again, and I am getting a massive amount of errors (over 110,000 before I exited) so I'm guessing that it might have been a RAM error all along. I'm going to remove 2 of my chips, and run the test again. I know this is the wrong forum for this question, but since I already have the tread, any advice on how to properly find the right chip? (It's a brand new motherboard so I would be very surprised if it was the DIMM slot)

I realize the last three posts were me, but I wanted to just show the resolution here. Turns out that with the amount of RAM I had at the speed I had it was not compatible with my motherboard. The max it could handle was 8GB, not 16GB. I removed two chips, ran the memory test with no failures, and my computer booted numerous times without incident. Thanks for all your help.

No one here or anywhere else recommends AVG. Why would your replace the recommended MS Security Essentials with such crapware? Did you just ignore the steps given for getting a perfect Clean Reinstall?

Why install SP1 when you were also provided with the latest official installer with SP1 to use?

If you have RAM errors you can isolate the stick and/or slot causing the problem following the steps in RAM - Test with Memtest86+.

Hi, First post :) Every time I shut down my computer it updates and installs 2 updates. This takes about 20 minutes. It surely is not the case that Microsoft has updated Windows 7 everyday for the last few weeks. Is there anyone having the same issue, or can help me at all.
