If a problem occurs I'll know exactly which group of updates to uninstall. Uninstall all of the updates in that group, reboot, and install just one at a time. They'll either all install properly or you'll know which specific update is the problem. Ignore that update for the time being and continuing installing the rest 3 - 5 at a time. When all updates are installed and machine is working right, try installing the problem update. If it still won't install right you'll probably need to Google that update to see if others have had the same problem.

Before installing your updates you could also run the system update readiness tool. This Microsoft article gives more info.

What is the System Update Readiness Tool?

And if this doesn't help you should be able to get free update support from Microsoft.

If you know you don't need a particular update, you can hide it so it doesn't keep asking you to install it.

Windows Update - Hide or Restore Hidden Updates

And finally you can look at this tutorial for resetting Windows Update components.

If system restore from a couple of weeks back got your machine working correctly, then yes, I'd go back to that restore point. When you manually search for updates (Start > All Programs > Windows Updates) your computer will be scanned to determine what updates are needed. When the scan finishes you'll see a list of available updates. You can select which updates to install by clicking in the box immediately to the left of each update. If the box is empty when you click, a check mark will appear. If a check mark is already in the box it will disappear when you click.

As I said, I do about 5 at a time starting with the critical, then the important, and finally, the optional updates. Depending on how may total updates you have, doing one at a time could take hours, especially if your computer has to reboot after some of those updates. I think you'd be safe trying maybe 3 at a time. Just make sure 3 are check marked and the others are not. Click the Install button and only those three will be installed.

You might want to write down on a piece of paper which three updates are in each group. (Each update will have a different KB number.) If your machine starts to act funny you'll know exactly which three updates were in the last group to be installed. Uninstall just those three and then reinstall one at a time.

Somethings I do after installing several Windows updates is reboot whether or not Windows instructs me to reboot. Also when Windows starts and you can see your desktop don't do anything until the hard drive light stops blinking. Then I go back and get some more updates if needed. After installing many updates I also check and see if I need to defrag with Windows 7 built in defrag tool. Windows 7 really doesn't have a fragmentation problem but I check anyway. I'm normally a 2 to 3 %.
