Windows 7: 52 Updates. Will not download.

Windows 7 64 bit
52 Updates. Will not download.

I have a laptop that I've not used for many months and today I attempted to action the updates finding that there are 52.
I have tried to get those moving but they keep stopping.
What can I do to solve the problem?
