My computer is stuck on up dates. For 3 days it has been saying about 18% It has all of the updates as far as I know. It will not let me click on it for the status. And I can't seem to stop it. If I restart, it will come back and start again. What can I do?

Well...you could, as a start, disable automatic updates.

Then...you can either just manually go to the Windows Update Site and attempt to install updates...or download specific updates to your hard drive and then install them from there.

Also, it may be a corrupt download that is causing the problem.

You could try going to C:/Windows/SoftwareDistribution/Downloads. Delete everything in that folder and try again with a clean slate.
