Hi Miro.
Another question/problem.
I can't get rid of the message "Restart your computer to install important updates" on my Windows 7 PC.
I've restarted several (hundred!) times and it just won't go away and unfortunately won't allow any further Windows Update checks.

Already tried that. Restore points are non-existant. Looks like a previous attempt to upgrade to Windows 10 failed and is causing this issue.

I was about to ask if you had attempted an upgrade to Win 10, so let's try manually uninstalling some updates.
You can do so by going to programs/features in control panel >> view installed updates
