Try to install only 1 patch. Post windowsupdate.log afterwards.

Then it has not so much info and it is easier to read

Enable logging as described here How to Enable Microsoft Installer logging and Verbose logging to gather additional troubleshooting Information
After that install updates again. Preferable only 1! After that:

post windowsupdate.log located in %userprofile%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows
Also post files starting with msi located in %userprofile%\AppData\Local\Temp
Only files created the last hour of course.
You may disable logging afterwards (described in same article)

Hi Kaktussoft
This article doesn't specify how to do that for windows 7.
I tried to to use the procedure that is specified for Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008.

After updating i file ,I realized there is no "windowsupdate.log" file located post in %userprofile%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows

Did you run the fixit on that page? there are 2 fixtits on that page.... one to enable one to disable. I hope you ran the right one(?).
After that run the updates again and try to find windowsupdate.log somewhere under %userprofile%

Try the attachment. One to disable, one to enable. Reboot is not needed.

I didn't try the fixits... I did it manually, and it works!
