Windows Update Causing Laptop to Restart

Kristen 0 Reputation points

I have a Dell Laptop and when I install the latest updates my computer says something went wrong and it needs to restart. Then it does and this cycle keeps happening. I know it is an update because I restored it to before the update (3 times now) and each time the update installs the issue begins. I am trying not to install updates to avoid this, but it is auto downloading them and then next time I restart it is applying the updates. How can I either stop all updates or resolve this issue without getting a new laptop (this is not an option).
