That would be roughly the time update KB943899 was released. It is causing issues with some people.
So a month ago, upon noticing the exclamation mark (updates from windows) on the shut down button on the start menu, I pressed on it.

Thanks for the suggestion, which I tried last night. Hid the updates and installed the others. Seemed to be quite normal but when the pc restarted after installation, the mouse function was not working properly, I also noticed there was 1 more update which appeared, tried to view it but the page was 'processing' the info for such a long time. So I decided to disable the updating option and turn off the pc. It was shutting down for over an hour. So I did a forced restart.
This morning, I turned the pc back on and after having this black screen saying the pc did not shut down properly, it was configuring updates again! But few minutes later, I got the log in page and all seems to be normal.
However I am scared of turning the automatic updates back on again but till when can I wait? - till the problem is sorted and the solution published by Microsoft?
Also how will I know which updates are 'safe' to install? Getting very confused and angry with Vista and want to get rid of it completely and go back to XP.
Oh, and should I do a system restore, just in case? Even if it is working now, may be it won't next time I turn it on. So I am leaving the pc on for the day today.
