Just a suggestion. Now that you got things working as they should be I would make another restore point.

Downloading and installing updates singly can be time-consuming, but there is a lot to be said for using that method.

To help you decide whether you need an update you can always highlight it first and an explanation of its purpose can be seen on the right of your screen.

When you roll back to a restore point, it doesn't disappear. He would just be duplicating the restore point.

Sometimes updates (Windows and other software) just glitch for no apparent reason.
