Updates corrupts user profile

After installing the latest important updates (published 08/13/2013-see below) and then rebooting, I was unable to log-in to my profile. I received the following message on the log-in screen: "The User Profile Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded". Rather than try to correct the registry as described at "support.microsoft.com/kb/947215", I restored the system to a point just prior to the installation of these updates while in Safe Mode. I can now log-in normally. I'd like to install these important updates (published 08/13/2013), but do not wish to corrupt my User Profile again, what's my best course of action at this time so that my operating system is up to date?

Thanks,

Thanks for your suggestion. I installed one at a time, rebooting after each one (tedious). This method was successful however.
