Close unwanted programs/processes
Users are advised to close unwanted programs and processes before starting up the installation of Windows updates in the computer. This is because even though most of the updates are installed in normal mode, some updates require a system restart so as to complete the installation/apply changes and the resource intensive applications. The processes running in the programs might give rise to issues or conflicts, too. So to avoid these complications it is best that the users manually stop or suspend ongoing tasks before installing Windows updates.
Scan system for issues
The errors and criticalities in a computer caused by the active infections and threats can make trouble during the installation of updates in Windows 7. The users are therefore advised to perform a complete scan of the system using a reliable security program before starting up the installation.

It is highly recommended that the users take back up of important data in the system and create a system Restore point using the available options before starting updates installation. Doing so can help secure the data and the system in case something goes wrong with the computer after installing the updates; and will also aid in recovering the system.
