Windows 7 x64 HP Palvillon dv6 series

When I powered up this evening, immediately more than 17,000 updates installed before windows launched. Don't know if it was windows or HP, it went real fast and I was trying to read the screen but it was flashing real fast as the updates installed.

Searched Microsoft and HP sites but didn't see anything about a large push out.

Has anyone seen anything like this? The laptop when on in and worked okay...

Thanks...

Yes, I am sure it was >17,000 - that's why I am inquiring about it. Someone on Geekstogo said it is a normal thing for Windows7 but we have had the laptop about 6 months and it is the first time my wife or I have seen anything like that. Have had, 'configuration updates, Step 3 of 3' on power up before but not this screen.
It only took less than 1 minute but sure got my attention....

You must have a monster of a machine if it will load 17000 updates in less than a minute. Mine did 22 the other day and it took over a minute.......

What I under stand from the guy over @ GeeksToGo was not all were installed, just those needed from my specific model/OS, etc.

Wish it were a 'super computer' but just an ordinary Windows 7, HP laptop....

Guess no one has seen anything like this. I was wondering if it might have been something HP pushed out, who would know? Couldn't read the screen as it was flashing/changing so fast...

Thanks for all...
