Turn on PC or restart it if it is running and keep pressing F8 during restart.

On screen that will appear choose to start it in "Safe Mode"

When it starts go to Start - Accessories - System tools - System restore - Restore my computer to an earlier time - choose restore point before the date and time when update was done.

Restoring can take a lot of time so be patient even if you think that progress bar is stuck it is still working. Make sure you choose the restore point older than update time.

For Windows, click the windows icon in the lower left, then the gear.
Choose UPDATE AND SECURITY
then click the box that says CHECK FOR UPDATES.
Your computer will automatically then download and update the latest updates. You may need to restart afterwards. Your computer will tell you what to do.

    Computer Restarts.


    Most probably windows is generating an error and your computer is set to automatically restart when an error occurs. Try disabling automatic restart. right click my computer and select properties. click on the advanced tab and uncheck the automatically restart check box.

    The reason why we need to do this is for us to see the actual error so that we will know what to do.
