What you are doing is to give yourself a choice to update or not. It's not automatic anymore. That done, in the Safe mode , do a system restore choosing the date BEFORE all that troubles started as your restore point.( If you don't know how to do that, let us know.) Now go back to normal mode. You have a decision to make. You can UN-check that box I told you, and let the windows update get started. If it starts and finishes normally, that's it! If you are back to square one, then repeat the procedures except that when you're back to normal mode, disable your antivirus program, then let your updates get started. When updating is done, Enable the antivirus program. If you still encounter problems, you need someone a lot more knowledgeable than me. Keep me updated.
