    Restart loop when I install new windows 8.1 updates

    I have two PCs..a Dell desktop and a Sony laptop(Purchased last June) yesterday I received the windows 8.1 updates so I installed them on my Dell desktop, no problems, it installed it and shut down the PC just fine and I am on it right now..but with the Sony laptop its nothing but problems..I installed the updates, it reboots just fine, but when I try shutting down the laptop it just goes back to a loop like it keeps on booting up then crashes then I have to restore it to August 9th and then it shuts down I am not sure what is going there a particular update that is causing this I wont install it I just cant figure it out and I have done the system restore 3 times will say I have 32 updates to install(including 1 optional one) so I just installed 30 of them to see if it would work and then I shut down the computer and same issue so something Im installing is causing this problem
