Windows 7: Windows 7 clean install and then update without countless restarts?

Win-7-Pro64bit 7-H-Prem-64bit

Did you download the 3 updates to a flash drive in advance or did you use the internet and download them from the new install ?
Look at your update history and see what else has been installed so far

But yea the error usually means it's either already installed or wrong bit
Click Start and type in the search box
system information
Click on the suggestion or hit the enter key

You should land on the system summery page
On the top left go to edit and Select all

Windows 7 Professional 64bit

Previously my system had so many problems that I couldn't even download the updates. I used a second computer to download the updates (which I copied to a flash drive) and I've been using that same second computer to use this forum etc. Since bringing my old laptop home I have not used it to connect to the internet, though I am almost sure at the repair shop the guy who was helping me reinstall my system connected to the internet to download some drivers.

Here's what I found according to your instructions:

That update was released 10-9-2014 it should of not been installed :/
I believe seeing your request I would start over
As soon as you activate windows disconnect from the internet
Then proceed with manually installing the updates.

Sorry I had to go out today is why I wasn't around.
