hi,

I've got a problem?? (Win XP Home SP3)

Yesterday updates were suddenly being installed from ms (Office 2007) & kept reinstalling

tonight when I switched on Windows got as far as the splash screen, a quick flash of the BSD and restarted

after reading a post here I saw something similar so I carried out the following:

I ran chkdsk /r (found & repaired one or more problems)

after rerunning it the second time it said the same

booted in safe mode ran Malwarebytes which found nothing?

win xp is loading now and everything seems to be working?

however it keeps downloading updates for Office 2007 (13 of them)
after installing them it asks to shut down, if I do before it closes it installs the updates again
then after rebooting whithin 2 mins of going on the internet it starts to download the same updates

If I don't reboot it still downloads the same updates?

can anyone help?? please

Turn off automatic updates...or stick only to Windows updates.

See if same thing occurs for Windows updates.

Suggest you do a System Restore.

Then turn off Automatic Updates as suggested above and download only essential Windows Updates.

Do restore your system first.
