Windows 7 Problem after update

My desktop computer has developed a problem which seems to have appeared after MS updates, which one I don't know as they seem to be far too frequent. It will not load my desktop, comes up with an error message. Yesterday I did a system restore back to the previous day and it was fine, but again today the same problem to which I ended up going back to the 12th. Now it has installed the updates again and back to the same problem. I think I am going to have to switch off the auto updates when I get it all back. Why can't MS leave well alone.

Once you have got it running again switch off automatic updates.

Go into services. Scroll down to Windows Updates and set it to disable, Also stop it from running.

Or you can change the update settings to download but let me decide when to install them.

Or you could run them manually and download them one at a time till you get to the one that is causing the bother and the next time you run the updates click on it and a box will open underneath just tick the box to not show this update again.

Might be better just switching the updates off, It seems there were more than one update causing the problems.

Thanks, I will switch them off altogether. It must be on the 32 bit version as my laptop which is on the 64bit seems fine.
