Hello cliver and welcome to Seven Forums.

I think you've narrowed down the problem to Windows Updates. I would suggest that you uninstall all of those updates and then see if the games will load and run.

Windows Update - Uninstall an Update

Assuming the games are now working, try reinstalling the updates. But instead of automatically installing all of them at once, install just one at a time and restart the computer after each one. See if the games are still working. If yes, install the next update, restart, check games. Keep doing this until either all of the updates have successfully installed, or you've pinpointed which update is causing the problem.

You can manually check for updates by looking in the start menu for Windows Update, or opening Control Panel > Windows Update. Click on "check for updates" and let the scan finish. You should be presented with a list of available updates (critical, important, optional) and they will probably all be checked. Uncheck all but the first critical update and install, restart, check games.
