    How many updates are there? Use the Windows Update Troubleshooter

    Troubleshoot problems with installing updates - Windows Help

    If still having problems, run the sfc /scannow command in the elevated command prompt.

    Windows Key + X and select Command Prompt (Admin). Also there must be a space between sfc and /scannow.

    You don't know if Windows is OEM or retail version or Windows. Do you know your product keys, in not go here and do option 5. After running let me know if it shows an OEM key and or installed key, don't tell me the numbers.

    yes its OEM and I got the number... but i'm almost sure it has to do with the computer names ''full comp name'' on system prop. you know where it says rename comp.or workgroup. just saying base on the screen shoots from above. i get this at start up Click image for larger version

    Then the computer is an OEM machine and since you do not have the Windows Disk or recovery disks you cannot reinstall. However look in disk management, do you see a Recovery Partition, if uncertain post a screenshot and what make and model your computer is.
