Windows 7: Can't install updates since November

Can't install updates since November

Just discovered that almost all my Win 7 automatic updates have failed since November. I get an 800706f7 (unknown error) message.

The last successful one was Windows Defender 915597 on November 11. The next one -- Win7 x64 update KB3008627 -- failed, as did most other automatic updates. I did notice that a few subsequent updates did go through for Malicious Software Removal tool, security update for .NET, and security update for Office 2007.

I tried restoring my machine, but it would only go back as far as November 18. No help there.

What can I do?

November updates - any thoughts?
Yesterday (7 November) I got the Windows has updates notification for the monthly updates. Looked for a thread to see if anyone had any thoughts on whether there were any issues, before updating, but couldn't find one. So are they all ok to install? Actually - maybe it's not monthly updates....

Windows 7 Updates November 2012...
I really would like to know (bottom line) if these updates are too problematic at this time? I have read countless articles about failures and newly created problems after installing these updates. Would it be best to wait and find out what the underlying problems really are?
