After 17 Windows updates on shutdown, Win 7 will not reboot. This happened about a week ago (with about 17 updates), and I was able to find a way to use a restore point to get past it. This time I am unable to do that, I get the Startup Repair dialog, which runs for a while but returns 'cannot repair automatically'.
Current Problem details for startup repair are:
Problem Signature 01: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem Signature 02: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem Signature 03: unknown
Problem Signature 04: 2120153
Problem Signature 05: ManualRepair
Problem Signature 06: 10
Problem Signature 07: BadPatch
OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.1
Locale ID: 1033
F8 brings up the safe mode menu, but safe mode will not load, nor do any of the other options seem to help get past the issue.
Recovery options / system restore fails for all 4 of the listed restore points.
I've read that this is not uncommon, but I am unsure how to get past the bad patch that is causing this.
Any help would be greatly appreciated,
P.S. If it means anything, I have been receiving and postponing a restart request from a recent AVG update because I was afraid this would happen again.
