Windows 7: Install updates/shut down problem

Install updates/shut down problem

I am running Windows 7 64-bit on my main desktop PC. (I am waiting for the Windows 10 upgrade).

My PC appears to be installing updates OK but every time I power up, the Start button shows the exclamation mark and 'installs updates and then shuts down' message - see attachments.

Any ideas why, please?

I am having exactly the same problem, I thought there might be a problem with the Windows Updater and when I run the Updater automatic troubleshooter the results stated the there was an error that it could not fix: error "0x80070057".

Please follow the Windows Update Posting Instructions and post the requested data

If the file is too large (8MB compressed), remove the older CBSPersist cab files until the final file is below the limit - you can always post them separately after zipping them. (the forum doesn't allow the upload of bare CAB files, for a number of reasons)

Please also post the C:\Windows\windowsudpate.log file
