    The first time I post a problem here, found some sulutions for some other problems here.

    Ad our work we installed 10 new PC HP Z400 workstations with windows 7 64bits, we installed Office 2007 small business and Autocad 2011, Sophos anti virus.

    After our install every thing seems to work fine computers are set in network and login to server windows 2003, get mail from exchange 2003. and get windows updates from the server 1 day in the week, for the updates we aprove in the windows update service on the server.

    but some how the 10x 64bits windows 7 machines dont hold themselfs to update shedul from ones a week from the server, on the client you can't adjust the settings for updating because its locked from out the server but it will update every day if needed we have 3x 32bits windows 7 machines who dont have this problem, the rest of our machines run on windows XP.

    the updating shedule isn't a big problem but every time we get an update the programs we use wont work any more they fail in starting up especialy Autocad and Office 2007 wont start Outlook starts up and runs but when we open an other mail then where the program starts in the program fails to work and we have to force it to close reboot the machine 1-5 times to get the programs working, after that it works perfect till a next update from windows

    in the reboot shutdowns the machine seems to do something for a few min but what is does uknown, when the reboot shutdown time seems normal, all programs work all programs work fine.

    I have searched a lot for the problem but haven't found any thing that comes close maiby some one here knows.

    added the system information from one of the machines as attachment

    If you have some Windows 7 machines that work and some that don't, can you compare logs to see what might be different?

    I know some Windows Updates require reboots. Can you tell if those updates are causing the problem?

    all 64bit windows 7 machines have the same problem, 32bits machines with windows 7 or 32bits XP dont have it.

    the 64 bits machines all need a few reboots to get it working again after 1 or more updates from windows, the reboots are after the reboot for the installation for an update

    This was understood from your original post.

    Have you attempted to compare logs or system configuration for those that work against those that do not work?
