My OS is Windows 7.

When I switch on computer it takes ages to install about 24 Windows updates. However, when I restart my PC it tells me updates have failed and PC is reverting back. Very frustrating.

I have tried a system restore. This is initially successful until it tries the updates and onces again, I am back to square one.

Any other suggestions please?

Okay - I have now got as far as reviewing Windows update history.

There are dozens and dozens of failed updates listed. Some are repeated because of the number of times the updates have been tried.

It looks overwhelming!

Success! Muddling through Windows troubleshooter has solved the problem.
