I just bought a new XP system and did all of the updates but when I go to shutdown the system it says installing 1 of 10 updates but windows shuts down before any of the updates are installed. I've tried several times to get it to install them but each time it does the same thing.

I am running Windows XP sp3 and have automatic updates set to "Notify me but don't automatically download or install them".

When an update was available I would see an icon in the task bar that displayed "Updates are available for download". I would then click on the icon and download the updates. Immediately after the updates were downloaded the icon would display "Updates are available for installation." I could then click on the icon and install the updates.

Beginning about two months ago I no longer have the option to install the patches. Instead when I go to shutdown my computer it states "Install Updates and shutdown".

How can I find out what caused this change and set it back to letting me decided when to install updates?

Thank you,

Howard

Hi,

As a network administrator I often shutdown all my network computers remotely with a command like this ?shutdown /r /m \\computername /t 5?.

Now, when an computer has done some updates I want to send him a similar command like the user has chosen the ?Install updates and shutdown? option.

Does anyone know this command line?

Thanks,
Chris

In Windows 7, when the Shut down button has an exclamation point on it, it installs updates before shutting down.

How can I see what updates it is going to install before I shut down?

Can I turn this option off so it only installs updates when I select?

Thank you

Hi All,

I recently recovered my computer from the problem (BSOD on startup) that was affecting Dell machines encrypted with DDPE. The problem occurred after installing the latest Windows Update patch (July 8, 2014). The IT staff fixed the problem, appearing to have rolled back the updates. Now, however, when I want to shut down my computer, the message that shows up when I hover over the "Shut Down" button says that the updates (presumably the ones that were just rolled back) will automatically install. I've already turned off automatic updates myself (this wasn't done by the IT staff), but the Shut Down button still shows that updates will automatically install. How do I shut down my computer while ensuring that the updates don't install?

Thanks in advance for your help.

If you choose the install and shutdown option,is it normal for Windows to go through a couple start up/configure updates/shutdown/start up again cycles before booting as usual when it is turned on again? I!ve never done it that way before,so idk how it works.

Just did a fresh install of Windows 7 Ultimate after procrastinating for years on my old Pentium 4 computer with XP. Of course there were alot of updates and I allowed all the critical ones to install, at least I thought they did. I then checked update to download but ask to install any new ones.

Almost every day when I shut the computer off, it warns me not to unplug it, it is installing updates. One day it is 1, next day 5, next day 10...

Is this normal, it seems it should be done by now.

On one of the Notebook PC's I manage I'm seeing a prompt that I've never seen before.

When I click START / TURN OFF COMPUTER - the standard dialog with STANDBY / TURN OFF / RESTART comes up, but at the bottom of that dialog it reads "turn off computer WITHOUT installing updates.

So evidently, there are updates downloaded - wanting to be installed. I am unable to figure out how to see a list of these updates so I can pick and choose which ones to let install. Anyone know the secret?

I've been having this issue for months now. Against better judgement, I've been forcing my system to shut down by holding the power button while ignoring the problem. I'd like to update to Windows 10, however, and fixing this would be healthier for my machine as well.
 
My problem exists in 2 steps.
1) Usually when I try to shut down/restart my computer, programs and services will terminate, but the system will hang at the desktop, showing nothing but the background, and stay there indefinitely. I've attempted to shut down at the end of the night, go to bed, then when I wake up the computer is still hung up on the desktop.
 
2) If I manage to get past this, the Windows Update screen appears with the message "Updating (1 out of 11)" and stays. I've had the same issue here where I leave it alone for hours and come back to find that it hasn't progressed at all.
 
I ran a hotfix (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/977307) but I am unsure if it worked because I still got stuck at the Windows Update screen.
 
I also ran the Windows Update troubleshooter, as per these instructions (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2509997) but after "checking registry", it seemed to be stuck on "resolving issues" for about a half hour before I cancelled it.
 
I'm really not sure how I can fix this if every step seems to result in getting stuck. I intend to try the other methods listed in the second article later tonight when I have the time. Apologies if I left out... Read more

As the title says, I have problems with Windows Update. I tried some fixes like: Reset_Reregister_Windows_Update_Components, Reset_Windows_Update_History, MicrosoftFixit50362 (which is a Microsoft Installer Fixer that couldn't install PowerShell), MicrosoftFixit50202. But what I really need is installing .NET Framework 4. I tried forcing it to install, installing it step by step, but it couldn't go further than .NET Framework 3.5. I need that Framework, the other updates don't really matter. And the interesting thing is that my antivirus doesn't say that Windows is not up-to-date, which is not normal, in ESET Smart Security, if Windows is not up-to-date.
If specs matter:

A:Windows Update stuck at Checking for Updates and can't install Updates manually

Hi antoniu200:
 
Many other Vista users have reported that Windows Update seems to get stuck at "Checking for updates..." for long periods of time, and this problem dates back to the August 2015 Patch Tuesday updates - see my screenshots in ScousaJAY's thread windows update just seems to hang while checking in the VistaForums. This month's December 2015 Patch Tuesday updates required a full hour on my machine before it finished the  "Checking for updates..." phase and finally presented a list of available updates, so you might want to try running a manual Windows Update and leaving your computer alone for an hour or so to see if it eventually runs to completion.
 
You might also want to read Nikilet's recent thread Updates were not configured correctly in that same forum.  Some Vista users, including myself, received an error message this month stating "Updates were not configured correctly. Reverting changes. Please do not turn off your computer" when they tried to install the December 2015 Patch Tuesday updates.  Six updates for the Vista OS and one cumulative update for IE9 were marked as "Failed" on my machine after Windows forced an automatic rollback and re-boot of my machine.  I re-ran Windows Update today and all Important updates that failed yesterday eventually installed successfully ("Checking for updates..." still took about one hour and I declined one Recommended update KB3112148 for Vista and one Optional update KB3106614 for Silver...

Suddenly Windows 7 has stopped installing Windows Updates. It downloads, then creates restore point, starts installation, but then comes back with the error code 800F0900. This happens with all the updates when carried out individually, critical or optional. I first went through the process of clearing all the Start-up Programs in the Services section of msconfig. As that did not solve it I then stopped all but MS services, and that did not solve it.  I tried the Microsoft .NET Setup Verification Tool. This said there were problems that it could not fix and sent a report to Microsoft.  Following an earlier thread on this site, I installed and used the Windows Repair program from Tweeking.com. This failed to solve the problem. Does any one have any other possible advice to help solve this problem ?

A:Windows Updates will not install. Error code 800F0900 for all updates.

I have a Dell XPS 15 Z laptop with 6 GB of RAM, 4 x 2.53 GHz processors and 500 GB hard drive which is only about half full. The operating system is Windows 7 Pro/ 64. All updates are current. I have Kaspersky anti-virus, malware bytes, & spybot search and destroy. All of which say the computer is clean.
I have repeatedly successfully installed 2 Windows updates:

Update for Microsoft .NET Framework 4 on XP, Server 2003, Vista, Windows 7, Server 2008, Server 2008 R2 for x64 (KB2836939)


Security Update for Microsoft .NET Framework 4 on XP, Server 2003, Vista, Windows 7, Server 2008, Server 2008 R2 for x64 (KB2858302)

Then, within a a few minutes I am notified that 2 new updates are available... The same ones. Just to make sure the update were truly successful, I have reinstalled them several times with the same result.

Occasionally there are other Windows updates included along with my two familiar ones. The others install fine and I never hear anything more about them. But the two above will soon come back as new updates available.

Though I can certainly ignore responding to these update notifications, it would be kind and nice to get it fixed.

Thanks Larry

Right click on the ones you already have (when they show up again) and 'hide' them. That will stop the nuisance.

Hi, I am sorry if this question has been asked before.
I have put my pc back to 'factory settings'. I have now changed the option of having to signing in. Whilst the pc is installing 'updates' while in the process of closing down it completely wants to power off in the middle of installing the updates... how do I overide this option. What settings do I need to change.

A:pc powering off in the middle of installing updates

Hello Harvey and welcome to Seven Forums.

Did you use recovery disks or the hidden recovery partition on the hard drive to return your pc back to factory settings?

It's possible that some system files were damaged or corrupted when the pc was set back to factory specs. You could try running a systm file checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two). If any problems are found, run the scan 3 times and reboot in between each scan.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

You should also check your power plan settings. You can change how many minutes before the computer tries to shut down. There are some differences between a laptop and a desktop settings. Also, computer manufacturers may also add their own plan settings.

Power Plan Settings - Change

And there's always the possibility that the AC adapter (laptop) or power supply unit (desktop) may be failing.

Hi all. I ask for any pointers to start looking at this if you can.

This week after some updates from MS in my W10 OS I noticed that clicking the middle button is not working at all. Normally in a browser you can open in a new tab or close a tab, etc.

I have a Microsoft wireless mobile mouse 1000. Whet I get this mouse and connected for the first time (windows 8 at the time) some driver was installed and also "Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard center" was downloaded and installed. Everything worked fine. I upgrade to W10 and no problem with this until earlier this week.

Testing the options in the Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard center, none of them works when I click the middle button. I just download and installed the version from the site. Installed in a regular fashion and in compatible mode for W8. (can you believe this is not for w10?

The scroll function works fine even the Flip scrolling direction.



Later I went to a DELL desktop (W8) and I tried the MS mouse there and works fine. Maybe I have to "tell" W10 to forget his is a MS mouse and to have the default driver. If such, how?

Also, I tried the mouse from that desktop here in windows 10 and works fine. (dell mouse without installing anything myself).

Any ideas are welcome and appreciated,

Best regards and thanks for your time

Hello, I would be grateful if anyone can help with this query.

On 1 June 2013 I took my pc back to Factory Settings and did a clean install of Windows installing all the relevant important updates for Vista. My pc is now up-to-date but one thing puzzles me. My list of installed updates lists a significant number of updates installed in 2008. (Two installed on 21/01/2008 and 39 from 21/10/2008). I would have expected that all updates listed would have an installation date on or after 1 June 2013.

Hello, it's been almost a year since my computer stopped searching from updates and when I try to fix it says an error occured: Error found, Code 80070424. It tells me how to fix it but it never does. I tried to download Windows Fix it, but it says there is something wrong and something about a trobleshoot? :/

The other thing is that my computer does not let me download and install anything at all. The other day I tried to install avast but it my computer and when ever I tried to scan something a dialog box appeared:this application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuation is incorrect. Please see the application event log for more detail.

It does not let me install anything and I am freaking out. I do not know want to do and I desperately need help.

Thank you.

I had updates available for windows 8.1 on my laptop last night but they failed to install and then my computer tried to restart and it can up saying 'We couldn't compete the updates. Undoing changes. Don't turn off your computer' but then it stayed like that for a long time. After force restart, the same message still comes up and it's been there all morning. I have a Dell Inspiron 15 5000 series. Can someone please help? I can't get past this screen at the moment.
 

A:Computer not turning on updates failed to install

That is a known issue with 8.1 after a failed update, it takes forever to undo and get back to normal, you should not have forced a restart. Boot the machine with the Windows installation DVD and at the 'Install now' window use the ' Repair my computer' link. Wait until it is done, then reboot.

My computer was hacked about a month ago resulting in two computers and batteries being ordered and sent to address in another state which resulted in the computers orderes being stopped but the batteries could not be stopped.  One VISA had to be replaced and my supplier account being closed.  Also, cannot load security updates from Microsoft for Windows 7.  I downloaded ComboFix at the suggestion of a friend who services computers and have run several times.  One concern is some of files show up as being deleted each time in the ComboFix log.  The files are: "c:\users\Fred McKee\AppData\Local\Temp\1.tmp\F_IN_BOX.dll" and  "c:\users\FREDMC~1\AppData\Local\Temp\1.tmp\F_IN_BOX.dll".  I have tried to use Windows Explorer but these files seem to be hidden files.  My friend seems to I may have RootKit virus problem.  Any suggestion as to a fix or software I might try to clean up the problem would be appreciated.  Thanks. Fred McKee

Hello all,
 
Here I've got a laptop that keeps telling me to restart the computer, so the updates can be installed.
When I accept, and the computer reboots, Windows won't update a single thing.
The message keeps popping up (remind me after ... hours) everytime the computer has booted.
 
I tried some things to fix this myself, but I'm all out of options now...:
At first some tools to remove ad-/mal-/spyware:
- Manually delete some toolbars from Configuration --> Programs
- Junkware Removal Tool
- AdwCleaner
- Malwarebytes Anti Malware
- SuperAntiSpyware
(they all found a few or more things)
 
after that,
- some Windows Update related fixes from tweaking.com's "windows repair aio"
- The build in tool Disk Cleanup (Windows) to remove Windows Update files
- Windows' problem solver for Windows update
- Microsoft Fix It 50202
- Microsofts System Update Readyness Tool
- sfc /scannow (no corruptions found)
- Again tweaking.com, but this time almost all fixes
- Totaly delete the folder C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution
 
And finally, as a last resort, Combofix, which also found some toolbar-items ('Orphans')
 
But unfortunately, nothing works.
Has anybody got any idea what could solve this very annoying problem (because of this message, Windows Update cannot search for new updates, so the last updates installed are from previous month)
 
Thank you in advance.

For over 24 hours Windows Update has said "Restart your computer to install important updates", yet every time I restart and check Windows Update it is still saying "Restart your computwer to install important updates". The update history shows a security update, KB3069762, which has been showing as "pending" for the whole of this period despite numerous restarts, but never shows as "successful" or "failed". It just stays stuck at "pending". 
 
Is it likely this is the cause of the problem? I also uninstalled the "Upgrade to Windows10 Home " update which now shows as failed.
 
PS - I've tried uninstalling security update KB3069762 and then reinstalling manually via Microsoft Security Bulletins (MS15-067) but it still shows as pending after restarting.

A:"Restart your computer to install important updates" issue

Type Rd /s /q %SystemRoot%\SoftwareDistribution  press Enter key and restart your computer then check for new availble updates.

usually I put off having to restart my computer, for as long as I can, or until something stops working in order to force a restart
most of the time, my computer gets real laggy; recently, it refused to connect to our house wifi until I installed the updates.
this time, it didn't give me any problems until AFTER i hit "restart.
it's been laggy for the past 3 days
I'm not getting any sound
and this chrome extension called "GoSave" keeps coming back. i remove it, but every time i have to restart my computer, there it is again.

A:problems start AFTER i restart computer to install updates

Please download and install Malwarebytes Anti-malware (free version) from http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free/ - UNtick 'Enable free trial of MBAM Premium' at the end of the installation - and update it, then run a full scan in your main account, and Quick scans in any other user accounts.

Quarantine everything it finds

Then...
Please follow the Windows Update Posting Instructions and post the requested data

If the file is too large (8MB compressed), remove the older CBSPersist cab files until the final file is below the limit - you can always post them separately after zipping them. (the forum doesn't allow the upload of bare CAB files, for a number of reasons)

Also, post the C:\Windows\Windowsupdate.log file

A:Computer Shutting Down During Attempts To Install Critical Updates

In Windows XP, the default setting is for the computer to reboot automatically when a fatal error occurs. An alternative is to turn off the automatic reboot feature so you can actually see the error code/STOP Message (which is also known as the Blue Screen Of Death (BSOD)).

To change the recovery settings and Disable Automatic Rebooting, right-click on My Computer and select Properties > Advanced tab. Under "Startup and Recovery", click on the "Settings" button and go to "System failure". Make sure that "Write an event to the system log" is checked and that "Automatically restart" is unchecked. Click "OK" and reboot for the changes to take effect.

This will not cure your problem but instead of crashing and restarting you will get a blue diagnostic screen with information displayed that will allow you to better trace your problem. Next time your computer crashes copy down the entire error message (including all the numbers) and post it back here.

Like many times in the past, windows had been prompting me to install updates. I selected the option to install these updates before I shut my computer down. My screen would read "installing update 1 of 3" or something similar, but that would stay on that screen for hours until I would perform a hard shut down. This happened several times before my computer simply stopped starting up. System Restore doesn't work and neither does anything else. A Startup Repair message flashes on my screen saying "Windows cannot repair this computer automatically. If you have recently attached a device to this computer, such as a camera or portable music player, remove it and restart your computer. If you continue to see this message contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance."

Hello everyone..well first my problems begun awhile back but they've worsened most recently.

My computer constantly installs updates but none of them are ever installed correctly. Every other time I restart my computer I have to wait a good 15 minutes waiting for the "installed updates" to be installed(its always 3 updates and they never install). It's frustrating ugh. I've been meaning to do something about it but I don't know anything about computers and found this forum luckily.

Also my computer has been getting a lot of popups. It's making my computer lag horribly and I just want it to be smooth running again.

I can't understand why I even need them, as I uninstalled net framework.

A:Windows 7 updates same for updates every time it checks for updates

See if you can System Restore to before Net Framework 4 was installed and then Hide it when it is again offered in Updates.

But be aware that some programs will need it and may not prompt you of this leaving you to guess why they are not installing or performing correctly. For this reason I always install it.

So you might want to reinstall it using its standalone installer since it may not have uninstalled correctly anyway.

Every time I power off computer, it says I have updates to install. The only update showing is a skype update. I also get a random "Help for Skype" browser pop up screen at times. When I have tried to go to a restore point it says it is unable to do that. The restore point problem started before the power down problem. I have had two warnings from Norton and Windows that there was a virus attack that was prevented in the recent past. I am hoping to get some help to see if some malware is causing this issue.

I Can't seem to figure out what went wrong. I think it needs a Device driver update of some sort. I am running Windows 7 64 bit off of an original MS DVD that was installed only about a month ago. I built this system a little over a year ago. I have since pulled some memory sticks (sent for RMA) as they gave me random BSOD because of memory errors. When I try to install updates it gives me a BSOD. I have tried to do a system restore but it says it is unable to complete. Any Ideas? See attachment for dump files.

Its probably because he has automatic updates set to download (automatically - duh, heh) but not for them to install until he chooses to. And since Id imagine they are temp files, you are prompted to install at shutdown, otherwise you will loose the files.

Everytime we shut down our computer, it tries to do several updates (always at least 9, sometimes as many as 13).

A few months back, we had a nasty virus, which I had to reformat the computer.

After reformatting, the computer has been attempting these updates at every shutdown. I do not believe these updates should happen with every shutdown, just only occasionally.

Also, the computer takes longer to respond from sleep. Whenever the computer goes in sleep mode, and I move the mouse to wake the computer up, the cursor is frozen for about 20 seconds while making a weird noise 3 or 4 times.

Other than the multiple updates with every shutdown, and the very slow respond time to waking up from sleep, the computer operates perfectly fine and efficient.

Any ideas to correct the above problems?

Ok so I am new here on the forum. Hi all...

I have had this HP ProBook 4540s for about 2 years now.
Windows 7 Pro SP1 x64
8GB ram
Intel i5-3210M CPU @ 2.05 GHz

For as long as I can remember there is always the shield with the exclamation mark on shutdown button.
I shut down the system and it says installing 82 updates. When I boot up it says installing and configuring updates.

Once the computer boots back up it takes about 2 minutes for the shield and exclamation mark to come back up. I have done the shut down many many times and it always comes back. I tried running windows update and it finds 82 updates, I install them and it finishes without any error codes but the same updates are always available for download.

I looked in the update history and their are 19 updates failed, further down the list all of the 19 failed updates are also listed as successfully installed on later dates. Im at a loss. I tried downloading the SURT and running it but it didn't seem to fix the problem.

I ran sfc /scannow and it did not find any problems....

I also have the CBS folder zipped but it is to large to upload... it is 13.6MB zipped.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello ALL:

I am on 64 bit Windows 10 Pro 10586.29. Before the last 2 updates, my system, with a 512GB SSD would shut down in 4 to 5 seconds. Since the last 2 updates, it has gone from a very fast 5 seconds to about 15 to 20 seconds. Is there any reason for this?

Hi, at the weekend I had 26 windows updates to apply, they did not install correctly and the computer would not shutdown. After many hours of waiting I forced a shutdown by holding the power off button. I restarted in safe mode and shut down correctly. I had problems restarting so I had a tip about deleting the contents of folder c:\windows\softwaredistribution\downloads after taking a copy of them. I also turned windows update to Never download updates. The machine then appears to start and shutdown ok but at times seems to run slower. I tried a restore to an earlier date but that didn't change anything, and I even re loaded a system image backup that I had taken a few days earlier, interestingly it did not put anything in the windows\softwaredistribution\download folder. I have followed the thread on this forum for update problems which first of all advised me to run the System Update readiness tool, and this installed Hotfix KB947821 ok.
I also ran sfc scan ok. I did another shutdown/restart ok, and then went to the windows update panel and ran Download updates, 28 updates were downloaded, so I unmarked all and then just marked one to install, but as soon as I clicked install it returned to the install button button within 2 seconds. I decided to shutdown and restart, but as soon as I clicked on shutdown the shutdown button disappears and the desktop just sits there with no system activity taking place.

So maybe this is a stupid question or not but I tried google for answers and could not find one, maybe its just my noobness shinning here but why does windows update need to shutdown the machine to apply updates? Why cant it apply updates and reboot?




Ok so Im not alone on this found this before hitting submit:

A:Installing updates, why shutdown?

Updates are downloaded, installed and configured.

Some updates cannot be configured while the computer is switched on, which is why it shuts down then restarts.

If you check the screen during this period you will see a message when updates are being configured, which can be both before and after the shutdown and restart.

You usually find that it's the security updates that need to undergo this routine.

You will also notice that you are requested to shutdown then restart your computer when installing or uninstalling certain software. This is so that your computer can be reconfigured also.

In advance, thank you for your time and effort to provide resource for this forum.

The computer doesn't complete the update when I try to shut down. It creates folders named with seemingly random series of digits and letters. It can't be deleted and a new folder is created whenever I try to shut down (w/updates). I can delete a lot of the files in that folder but there are 4 dotnetfx folders that can't be deleted. I've let it try to update overnight but it never completes.

I've run Malwarebytes and found no problems.

There are other symptoms but from other posts I've been reading, my description above is not unusual.

I've had this issue for many months now, when I click shut down.. it goes to the light blue "Shutting down" screen then tells me it's installing update 1 of 36 or something ridiculous like that. The problem is.. I've left it on before, overnight, and when I woke up.. It was still at update 1.
So I now just manually shut it off when it gets to the "updating" part, this can't be good for my PC, so I decided to try and disable these updates.

This guide looked very promising:

Is there a way to do this via regedit?

Hi All,

I have installed Windows-7 Home Premium on my Sony Viao vgn-fw490 notebook without any issues. But, whenever I perform shutdown, it applies 18 updates and I have to wait for it to finish for 10 minutes. This happens always.
How can I fix this issue?

Thanks,
~Vikram

A:Shutdown-Always applying 18 updates

Rather unique problem. If it were me, the first thing I would do is to use system image to restore to a point prior to the downloads. When your image is installed, you will get all the downloads again. Make sure that you are set to install manually. Then install one at a time. If you do not have a system image for that period, you can use system restore and go back to a point prior to the first installation and then go through the same procedure. Finally, if that does not work you can try to uninstall, through the updater and then reinstall the way that I mentioned. These are the three ways that I know, chose the order that makes you the most comfotable.

Hello,

I've purchased a brand new hp pavillion laptop for 650$.

HP - Pavilion Laptop(model:dv7 -1448x) with AMD Turion? X2 Dual-Core Mobile Processor (4GB RAM,320GB hard drive).

The initial configurations done as per the setup and wizard instructions provided by hp. After some time, suddenly the system performace was too slow and it has given me a huge shock and made me think like i've wasted my money! BUT after installed the windows updates, it's performance increased tremendously.

There is always the alert which shows install Windows updates. Even when i tried to shutdown the system, it pops up 'Install Updates and shut down'. So i've installed the updates almost every day otherwise it will not allow me to perform any operations. Is this expected behaviour? Can't we work without installing any windows updates atleast for a month?

I am afraid may be some performance issue on this model! Due to these every day installation of windows updates, its killing my hard drive like anything.. Intially, in C drive, the free space was 243 GB of 260GB, now its reduced to 225GB of 260GB. I am loosing my memory because of this updates.

Please suggest what can i do to save my memory as well as to increase the performance of my system. I really thankful for any valuable suggestions!

I have Windows XP w/SP-2 installed on a laptop. Last night, I was notified that there were four critical updates to be installed. I clicked to install them. When I shut the computer down, I noticed that the "Turn off" button had the little security shield icon superimposed and mousing over the button said that it would install updates and shut down my computer. I had never noticed anything like this before, but I assumed it was a new feature that came with a recent Windows update. Now I'm worried that I was wrong, because after shutting down at 11:30 pm or so last night, the computer seems to be hung. I have a screen with a blue background, the Windows XP logo, and I get a message that alternates between saying "Do not turn off or unplug your computer; it will turn off automatically." and "Installing update 1 of 4." Again, this is behaviour I've never seen before, and has been going on now for over 9 hours. Unfortunately, I did not make note of the critical updates, but I seem to remember that the file sizes were not that large.

Can anyone tell me if I'm just installing a very large update of some sort, and shouldn't interrupt it, or if something has gone wrong and I need to hard re-boot?

Thanks for your help.

Hi,

My setting for Windows Updates is "Download updates but let me choose whether to install them". When I get updates and shut down my PC, I get the exclamation mark icon next to the "Shut down" button indicating that updates will be installed on shutdown. How do I shutdown my PC without installing the downloaded updates?

In the past, I would go to the Windows Update window to see what was downloaded and uncheck the updates that had a tick in the checkbox. This worked until today i.e. updates that weren't ticked, weren't installed.

I had IE9 downloaded for quite a while now and I always unchecked it from being installed as I wasn't ready to use it yet. Today, I did the same thing but the exclamation mark icon on the "Shut down" button wouldn't go away. I tried several times to uncheck it on the Windows Update screen but the icon on the "Shut down" button wouldn't disappear. In the end, I thought I risk it and shutdown the PC. It then proceeded to install IE9!

I thought that by going to the Windows Update window and unchecking the checkbox against the downloaded updates meant that they won't be installed when the PC is shutdown. In XP, there used to be a shutdown but don't install updates option when shutting down the PC. Is there an equivalent on W7 as I can't see it.

Thanks.

Hi guys, new here.

I work in a call center where our windows updates is managed by WSUS and we are trying to think of a way to manage the updates as efficiently as possible but as some of the PC's don't have WOL capabilities it becomes difficult to automate.

We don't want to let windows update check during calling as WU uses a lot of the system resources and we want to avoid any manual processes if necessary as there are over 100 machines on the call floor.

Is there a way to set each machine to check for updates and install any important ones when the PC is being shutdown either via group policy or a form of script?

If you require more information please let me know.

Hello,

I'm running windows 8.1. I installed the windows updates today including recommended and now when I go to Start > Shutdown or Signout > Shutdown, it simply puts the computer to sleep. It says it's shutting down but in fact it's putting the computer to sleep. It seems like this behavior is intentional, anyway to disable this? While it's nice for it to resume from sleep in 1 second (versus 4 seconds on a cold boot after a shutdown), I prefer shutting down and starting it up each day since it only takes 4 seconds. I can restart it obviously and can do that as a workaround but I wish the "shutdown" worked as a shutdown as it used to. Seems nuts to me. I wouldn't be surprised if this isn't happening to many others after today's updates and they just don't realize it yet.

Event 42, Kernel-Power

The system is entering sleep.

Sleep Reason: Application API
Event 1, Power-Troubleshooter

The system has returned from a low power state.

Hello All
About a week ago I got back from vacation and tried to install about five windows updates. I thought they had downloaded successfully because when I tried to turn my computer off for the night it gave me the ?Install updates and shut down? option. I accepted it and went to bed but when I got up in the morning it was still on ?Please do not power off or unplug your machine installing updates 1 of 2? I let it keep installing while I went to work but when I got home in the evening it was still stuck. I don?t think it should take 24 hours to install one update so I had to power the machine down and reboot.
I went to the windows update console and looked at the available updates and they appeared to still be uninstalled and undownloaded. I then tried to install them, but after an hour they were still at 0%. I then tried to look at my installed updates to see if maybe I needed to delete the recent ones and redownload them, but it would keep getting stuck trying to open. A grey progress bar would appear on the file path on the top, but it would never actually open. (I?ve had a similar problem with some other file folders like My Pictures.) As far as I know I don?t have any viruses and I have nearly 100 gigs of free space in my hard drive. They only things I can think of that might be causing this problem is that I recently checked my registry with Registry Mechanic by PcTools, which may have messed something up. And I also signed up for Carbonite about four weeks ago an... Read more
