Hello sgdc191; Would it be too much trouble to re-install Win7 again? That looks like it might be the easiest solution. Set a System Restore point before doing any updates, and if the updates fail again you should be able to do a System Restore.
Check to see if you have restore point prior to the updates that you can use to restore with.
One more suggestion - try Safe Mode. Function 8 at startup shows you the Advanced Boot menu.
reintall i agree with WR2!
You can try with Restore Point if this will not worked then Repair Your Operating System ...
