How to remove pending updates in windows 7

I am having windows 7 and have about 10 recommended updates,but when i try to install them it errors out. I mean window restarts automatically as they were tried for installation. when automatic restart is turned off, it errors out showing blue screen.

I am thinking of clear these pending updates as of now from system and try to check with updates again. this might bring in fresh updates based on current window status.

Latest update by me was uninstall of microsoft security essentials so that licenced version of Mcafee can be installed.

Please help.

Thanks and Regards
