You may follow below steps which may help you to resolve your issue:
Step 1:
I would suggest you to disable any security program on your computer and check if it resolves the issue.
After checking for the issue you need to re-enable the security program on your computer.
 
Note: Running the computer without firewall or the anti-virus software is a potential threat to the computer; make sure to enable the security software after completing the troubleshooting steps and after identifying the issue.
 
Step 2:
I would suggest you to place your computer in clean boot and try installing updates and check.
Refer the following Microsoft KB article for more information on how to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135 
 
Note: After troubleshooting, make sure to put the computer to start as usual as mentioned in Step 7 in the above KB article.
Also refer:
Troubleshoot problems with installing updates
 
Step 3:
Try performing SFC scan on the computer.
SFC /scannow is a super-useful command you can use in any Windows version. When the SFC (System File Checker) command is used with the /scannow switch, the tool will scan all of the important Windows files on your computer and replace them as necessary.
Missing and corrupt operating system files (like many DLL files) are arguably the biggest cause of major Windows issues. Considering that, plus the fact that SFC /scannow is completely automatic and very easy to use, the tool should usually be one of your first troubleshooting steps.

Step 4:
