Windows Updates don't Install - Windows 7 Pro

Hello Experts,

My computer keeps restarting since running Windows Update.

Even after a restart, on Windows update screen, It tells you that a restart is needed to install updates.

( I think I stopped this from happening by turning OFF Windows updates. )

Does anyone know how I can fix this?

Thanks!

Boot up in safe mode with command prompt and type rstrui.exe to restore to a time before you installed updates.

If this does not work, you may try a repair install of Windows 7.
