this was my recommendation as well also you might consider try restoring any drivers you've updated recently back to an older working version and then try updating

Have you tried a system restore back to before you downloaded the updates ?
Otherwise you could try a repair as opposed to full install with your discs
some of your Windows updates failed because Windows needs to reset for the options to take hold and without that reset it won't allow a new updates to adjust settings and they fail. What you might want to try doing it continuously restarting and updating as you go along just to make sure that some of the updates take hold and once they do you should be able to continue installing the rest

I got my mother a new PC a few months ago with a fresh install of Win 7 on it. Got it home. And it started auto updating, for the next 51 hours!
51 hours to update. Insane.
And even then about half the updates 'failed', with no reason given by Windows, just 'failed'.
So I switched off auto-updates. Enough of that nonsense.
But most programs will remain installed providing they're NOT installed to selective profiles.
