I hope somebody can help me with my problems or suggest other threads that might help me. I have looked at several other threads but none had the same issues together I have.

1. I can download updates, programs, and drivers but when I try to install them they will disappear during the installation process.

I have a printer I'm trying to load drivers for and it keeps disappearing during installation.
2. System Restore does not work. When I select the Restore Point to restore, it goes through the process and I get the following error: "An unspecified error occurred during system restore. (0xc0000022)" The restore does not take place and the restore point is no longer available in the restore log. I tried to use the restore point from a couple of weeks ago before I started noticing problems. I also lost the next oldest restore point I had with the same problem. Only restore points now available were from a couple of days ago.
3. I can't boot into safe mode. When I try, it ignores the F8 key and just loads as normal.
4. It took me about 6 times rebooting the system to get it to install Windows updates that may have been there for awhile.

My system is:
