Windows 7: Failure to start after critical Microsoft updates ?

Failure to start after critical Microsoft updates ?

For the past month, everytime my laptop performs a critical system update, the system fails to start when restarted. I then have to go through start up repair etc before eventually having to do a system restore. I don't want to do a complete wipe of the system. Is there any solution to this problem ? It started after I installed a new printer driver, but surely that's not a problem is it ? Any help would be much appreciated !!

I suggest that you first block updates by switching then off.
Then follow the Windows Update Posting Instructions and post the resulting data

Post that and the CheckSUR results anyhow - the CBS logs contain a lot more detail than just the SFC results.

Optional or Recommended (Critical) Updates
I've noticed that when I put an "Optional" update (Win 7) into the Hidden "folder," it is then marked "Recommended." If I "restore" a Hidden Recommended update, it then changes to "Optional" when it is restored. Does anyone know what I am trying to explain? A file says Optional when I look in the...

There hasn't been any critical updates for Win 7,right?
Has there been any critical updates for Windows 7? At least I haven't seen anyone. But it is very rare, because they always send some critical updates in their first month, and there's been zero. Or, am I wrong?
