Do each update one at a time. A restore point should be created after each. Save the .net framework one for last. This will tell you which is causing the slow down. Once the computer slows down after a particular update, do a system restore, then hide that update.

Hi AlienW3re
When you purchased the upgrade to Ultimate why didn't you use the key that was supplied then? Did you download the upgrade or was it a boxed version?

With automatic updating turned on, you don't get the option of only doing updates one at a time. They are downloaded and installed automatically. As the OP says, when he restarted, they all installed.

I've never seen a situation where every available update can't be installed at once (unless explicitly set that way by Microsoft). On XP, Vista, and 7, I've always done every possible update in one go, and never had an issue with it.

This slowdown is related to a recent update, and the computer will sort itself out after a bit. I've already dealt with it on three computers, and it will fix itself.

Windows Updates can, and in my opinion should, be set to ask before downloading and installing any updates. In other words, yes the option is there on all Windows computers. Sometimes updates can cause conflicts, especially when a lot are installed at once. Some people will have issues, and some people won't. Hence my favorite thing to say on here being "Mileage may vary." I've used the method I described above since the days of Windows ME, and it works well.

EDIT: Forgot to mention, when configuring Windows for first use, the option is not presented to set it to ask before downloading updates. It must be set later through control panel.
