    My parents have a Asus Desktop, running Windows 7. And when ever they have problems I come and help them out, but the last time I went over they wanted me to help them stop the constant "Windows Updates" that were happening. It is not the "New Windows updates are ready to be installed" Bubble that pops up in the bottom right hand corner of the screen, it is when you go to log off or shut down. There's a little icon next to the rectangle that says what you are about the do (Log off, restart, sleep or shutdown) That says windows needs to update. And when you shut down it stays "Please wait while windows intalles updates 1 of 1. Or something of that sort.

    Now I have Win. 7 on my computer at home and of course I see that windows needs to update every few days but on my parents PC every time you shut the PC down it had to update. My parents shut there PC down every night, so its not like they have it on so long that it needs to be updated when ever they shut it down.

    Most of the time it's 1 update that installs its self.

    Any help is greatly appreciated. I am pretty computer smart so don't worry about giving me advanced advice :) -Chris

    Next time you are there, go to Window Update and see what's available and do it all at once. When it's done do it again as sometimes updates have updates.
