Windows 7: STOP: C0000135 The program can't start because %hs is missing.

17 Apr 2015   #1

Windows 7 x64 Professional
STOP: C0000135 The program can't start because %hs is missing.

I decided to reinstall Windows because my computer was kinda slowed down and installed it on my SSD before formatting my main hard drive and the SSD itself. The problem is that I can't install the windows updates correctly. All I did was installing some drivers from the support disc and the windows updates. But everytime I try to install the windows updates my pc crashes either when it installed 100 out of 183 updates and gives me a bluescreen with the "STOP: C0000135 The program can't start because %hs is missing" message and it reverts the updates or it crashes instantly as soon as I try to install the updates and I get a different bluescreen. I tried scanning the hard driver several times with "sfc /scannow" but everything seems fine.
(I apologize for any grammar mistakes I may have made. I'm not a native speaker).

Did you install AVG as your anti-virus by any chance?
