Windows update

For some strange reason during windows update my pc reboots before completion, i have tried many times without success, each time it reboots at 66%, another problem i have is that my p c freezes sometimes, and when typing, letters appear about a second later after i typed.

any help would be greatly appreciated

when you Say windows updates are you referring to all updates windows and critical? if so how many of each are there? if its critical updates ,try doing them one at a time
this way you will find out which one "If Any" is causing the problem.
