Why you only have 1 restore point? Did you reserve little space for restore points? Anyway revert back to that restore point. The restore point has been made PRIOR TO installing windows updates. Works?

Then install the updates in 1 by 1 or 2 in a batch. Untill you know what update screws up your system. So write down what you installed!

It didnt work, the only restore point that it has also gets stuck in the configuring windows updates screen. Do note that I had automatic windows update off and i havent installed any programs recently.

A restore point will be made:
  • manually
  • install/uninstall program
  • install/uninstall windows updates
Any idea what/who did create the restore point?
Any idea why windows updates were installed then (you told automatic windows update has been turned off!)

Is it really "configuring windows updates screen" you're talking about?? What is exactly displayed on screen?

The last program i installed was the witcher game but i seriously doubt that was the problem because it doesnt mess with the system files and, as my previous post said, i never did a windows update; it all began when i disabled internet explorer and desktop gadgets in the disable windows features option in uninstall or change programs, the first thing it did was give me that screen after the reboot, but it was a long time ago (about 3 weeks)

I would advise not disabling I.E.
Whether you use I.E. or not as your browser of choice.
Windows 7 needs I.E. to work properly.

What works for me is setting I.E. at it's default settings and selecting it as my default browser. That being said; I don't use I.E. as my normal browser. I use Firefox.
My thoughts and I don't have proof is that Windows 7 needs and wants I.E. to work properly. Anything you get from Microsoft, ie. Updates, tools, programs, Fixit's, KB's ect wants I.E.
As far as I know I.E. sitting there doing nothing until a Microsoft something request it's use hurts nothing.
I.E. is not just a add on browser like Firefox or Chrome. It is part of Windows 7.

Ok I reinstalled windows without deleting the partitions, I had very important files that I didn't backup and can't afford to loose them. I installed all drivers in the correct order and now am downloading all the windows updates.

I suppose there's nothing wrong by downloading and installing all the updates labelled as Important?, is there something I should be warned about? The only files I recovered from windows.old are from the Users folder so I guessthat won't make any interference with the updates.

Why do you ask after doing it? Assume I say no...you're stupid... then I'm to late.
Anyway...there are no users define yet. It won't interfere.

I know I was being stubborn but this wasn't supposed to happen only because I disabled a couple of windows features.
