Yes
Set the update to notify and you install one or two at a time
Then leave setting to notify for the future.
Windows Update - Reset

You are very welcome It has helped many
I have never had a problem
The updates reboot the computer, when too many need to reboot there are conflicts and problems

There is no need. Do it the normal way. If you should have a problem with one, just uninstall and do the others. When done, if you have one or two that cannot be installed we will talk about it, maybe its not even essential the it be used
After installing a few make a System Restore point so if you have problems you can go back and not remove all that you have done..

Can you get into safe mode at all?
You need to get into safe mode and pick a restore point before the problems. The restore point that you picked probably included the problem.
If you can boot in regualr mode that is even better.
