For about two months now give or take everytime I go to shut down my computer it says that there is windows updates. I have gone to the main site to see if there is an update and many times there is not. When I do click ok to do the updates sometimes the next time I turn on my computer it will do desk checks and a couple of times I have gotten a screen where I can change things I belive like time and other things. With the desk check lately even when I do not press ok for windows to do updates it still comes on like every other day and once in awhile my computer will shut down and restart and do a desk check.

Without knowing anything else, I would run chkdsk on the system, using the Graphical Version procedures as detailed at XP Chkdsk, Using the Graphical Version (My Computer) - http://www.updatexp.com/windows-xp-chkdsk.html

When options are presented, be sure to put checks in both the "scan" and "recover" boxes.

Reboot the system, let chkdsk run to completion. It should reboot (IIRC) upon completion.

Ok so I tried the first step you gave me and got this message Cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts? Y/N. I said yes then restarted my computer nothing came up tried again got the same message. Did the seconed thing you said to do it ran the check and it came up with this system1/_Restor1/RP4001/Snapshot/_R017D~1. Now my windows update is still comeing up when I go to shut off my computer.
