Windows 7: Comp won't finish updates on restart

Comp won't finish updates on restart

I'm having an issue with updating my system. My computer installed some updates and wanted me to restart to fully update the system. When I turn the computer on now it shows it's updating (it never progresses past zero) and it doesn't finish the update. Now every single time I go to start my computer it constantly has to try and finish these updates. The computer will sit there for a good few minutes trying. I have no idea what the updates were.

I don't know how to fix this problem. I don't want to have to do a system restore. Is there any other way to resolve this issue without doing a system restore?

Why not do a system restore to the restore point that was taken before the updates were installed. That does not touch your user files.

And next time these updates arrive, install them one by one or hide them.

Before doing a system restore, disconnect from the Internet (unplug your modem), temporarily disable Anti-virus and firewall.... see if the installation finishes.
