Can't install updates for Windows 7

Hi

I'm running Windows 7 64-bit and there are some updates I can't install. It loads to 15% then it says "failure configuring updates, reverting to old setup", or something similar. First I had 8 updates when this started happening but I managed to install the security updates by selecting them exclusively. I have have tried deleting my updates folder and download again but same thing happens. Is there a fix for this? It's annoying when my computer reboots because they can't be installed.

These are the updates in question:
