Windows 7 updates will not install

This is newly installed W7, 32 bit OS.  I am unable to get about 120 important updates to install.  I have run MS Updates "Fixit" a few times and each time it appears to correct some issues.  However, those fixes have not solved the problem.  Here is the scenario.   The updates are downloaded and installed.  The system will need to be restarted.  Upon doing so, I think the next process is "configuring updates".  Then the system will shut down and restart whereby I get another process that seems to be configuriing updates.  Then finally a reverting changes and another restart.  I may not have the exact sequence but you get the idea.  I've also tried installing just one update but that didn't work either.  Ideas?
