Windows 7 hangs on 'Starting Windows' screen after installing updates

Hi,

when windows updates, it then reboots, and just hangs on the 'starting windows' screen..
only after it updates, works fine before.

I've re-installed it many times, but get the same result.
this never used to happen until i did this fresh installation today.

now it happens every time, just after it installs some standard updates, it wont boot up..
im totally lost,, please help.

thanks

Boot into System Recovery Options to run Startup Repair a few times. Report back what it finds.

Please post back a screenshot of your maximized Disk Mgmt drive map and listings, using SNipping TOol in Start Menu: Screen Shots

Next reset Windows Update components to see if that could be the problem.

If not run SFC -SCANNOW Command
