Windows 7: Failed updates send PC into endless reboot loop

Failed updates send PC into endless reboot loop

Hey all,
It's been quite a while since my last post but I've been having a problem with Windows Update.

I have 32 pending updates (I've had to do a system restore twice now) and every time I install them, several of them fail.

After installing these updates my computer is sent into an endless reboot loop where it can't reach past the login screen.

My only guess is that either the failed updates, or a successful yet damaging update is the source of the problem.

Also, I've been living in a new place for about a month which has caused a few problems as far as network connection goes. Whenever I boot up, the internet connection takes about 20-30 seconds to initialize which causes a few program errors, not sure if this has anything to do with it. Although, I installed updates around 3 weeks ago on the same network without any issues.

Here is a screenshot of my failed updates:

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
