as above,

recently i noticed my computer has been installing updates everytime i shutdown and startup, hence prolonging my startup/shutdown time by a lot. checked win update and realized most, if not all of the updates failed to do so.

already tried using the MS FixIT tool, to to avail. tried other solutions on the net provided by the MS MVP, also didn't work. do suggest alternatives if any. thanks!

Have you tried to rename the download folder of the collection of the updates?

%windir%\SoftwareDistribution\Download\ to %windir%\SoftwareDistribution\Download.old\

%windir% = Where your Windows is installed on, C:\Windows\ by example.
