Why do startup updates always fail on my computer?

All we need is an easy explanation of the problem, so here it is.

Windows 7 Home Premium asks me to shut down and install updates on every shut down.

When it boots up, it says “Configuring your updates… 0%” and after about five minutes it changes to “Failed update, rolling back.”

I can’t find anywhere to cancel these updates so that they don’t run.

Any ideas how to fix this?
