I just updated windows and found that a few updates could not be installed. These were:

KB2360937
KB2360131
KB2378111
KB2296011
KB2387149

Googleing them and checking what they contained it seems as if i should be able to install then (not the wrong sp or anything) and they seem fairly important. Anything i should/could do?

Try downloading these updates from MS downloads directly and see if they will install in safe mode.

I ran MBAM yesterday, turned out blank, and this morning they installed without problems.

I guess its true what they say. You fix broken stuff by rebooting them...

Thanks for the tip about safe mode though. Good to remember in the future.
