Have you tried a system restore point to a date before you installed the updates http://windows.micro.../system-restore
If the above is not an option try uninstalling all updates up to the point that the issue started and then install them one at a time and see if they all install correctly or if you can identify a particular update that causes the issue.
Removing bad updates and reinstalling them;
Go to Add/Remove Programs
Click the box on the top that says Show All Updates
Scroll through and find the offending update/s and remove it/them.
Now try manually updating again one at a time and see if it corrects or identifies the faulty update/s.

I take it that the first and easiest option a System Restore was a no go then.

How to physically test your Ram.
The following checks require the computer case to be opened so take the following safety precautions 1st, disconnect the power cord from the wall socket and take anti static precautions before touching anything inside, you can do this by touching a bare metal part of the case.
Have a pencil and notepad to hand.
Remove each stick of Ram and blow out the memory slots.
Insert the first stick of Ram in memory slot one, reconnect the power and in the case of a desktop computer the video to screen cable.
Power up the computer and see how it goes.
Make a note of the results.
Repeat the procedure until the first stick of Ram has been tested in each memory slot and the results written down.
Remove the first stick of Ram and put it to one side on top of a piece of paper with the number one on it for identification purposes.
Repeat the procedure with all Ram until each stick has been tested in all slots, the results written down and the sticks identified numerically.
Please note that some MBs (motherboards) will not boot unless there is Ram in slot one so please refer to the user manual for guidance.
