Just thought I should also mention that just prior to shutting down, I had my external hard drive connected. It was giving me issues. Some of my folders, when I tried to open them, would say that the disk is write protected. When I looked at the properties for those folders, which definitely had files in them, it said that the size of the folder was 0 megabytes. I closed all windows for the external hard drive and tried to eject the hard drive. I got an error message saying that I needed to close all applications being used by the external hard drive. I couldn't find any applications being used by it, so I just decided to shut down. That's when the computer decided to install these updates. I don't ever remember downloading any windows updates. I usually restart my computer immediately after downloading updates. Anyway, any help would be appreciated.
