If you choose the install and shutdown option,is it normal for Windows to go through a couple start up/configure updates/shutdown/start up again cycles before booting as usual when it is turned on again? I!ve never done it that way before,so idk how it works.

Was using Firefox...until Chrome took over.

Yes, it depends on whats being updated. Not common, but it happens, and not just 8.1.

Netghost56 is correct.  Whenever you install updates, you should always use the restart option, not just shutdown.  Windows knows that it will need to reboot several times, to get everything installed.  Multiple updates may need to installed in a specific order, and may update the same file; so the updates are installed in a specific order.

Best of luck.
