Windows Updates and Dell Inspiron 15 Laptops

Two days ago a customer brought me a Inspiron 15 laptop that was in a continual state of booting in to a system repair and it could not repair it. It is a Windows 7 x64. She said it started with some Windows Updates around 7/17/2015 (just last Friday). I managed to do a system restore prior to that and it booted again but as soon as I ran Windows Updates again it was right back to booting into repair. I did NOT select any hardware updates.

Now today I am told yet another Inspiron with Windows 8 is doing the same thing. Does any one have a clue why this is happening?
