Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit

Well I tried a repair install and it wouldn't install so I ended up using my install disk to completely format my Hdd and then do a full clean install and that has fixed the problem so far, now I have to go make a new thread in the updates section because windows update ran and came back wanting me to download and install a 189 updates and I'm to sure but I think that is what destroyed my hive the first 2 times I installed windows 7. I have no idea what to do here, any ideas?

Check out the screen shots I attached Its insane!

All the updates are required.
Install them in this fashion...

First, UNCHECK them all.
Then re-check the Security Updates for Windows - install them, and reboot
do a new Check for Updates - and uncheck everything again, re-checking any Security Updates found, and also the ordinary 'Update for Windows' entries.

repeat for the Internet Explorer 8 updates (do NOT install IE9/10/11 yet!)
then install IE11/10/9 - whichever is offered, and then its updates.
Then install the other updates - but NOT the .NET ones
Lastly install the .NET updates, and then .NET 4/4.5.2

At the end of each group, reboot at least once, then do a Check for Updates.
