Okay, today I turned my PC on, and when it got to the loading windows screen (The black one with the animation of the windows logo), it said something near the bottom along the lines of updating registry. It then restarted the computer and went right through to just before you see my desktop, when it said something about preparing, and then continued.

I have tried restarting the computer since, and it did not repeat this. Also according to my windows update history it did make one update this morning, I believe either just before or when I turned my computer off, and a few more the day before.

What I want to know is, should I be worried about this? I've never seen a message like this before, although obviously I could have missed it before, and I'm worried that something has affected my registry or similar.

Some Windows Updates need to complete installation on reboot. That's all that happened, don't worry about it.
