Wierd. Every time I shut down my dad's new computer, running XP, it installs a new update. It gets shut down either every day, or every other day, and oddly enough, this isn't happening with my computer, running the same OS. Nor with my boyfriend's computer, also running XP. O_o

...This worries me. Anyone having (or have had) the same issue?

Its probably because he has automatic updates set to download (automatically - duh, heh) but not for them to install until he chooses to. And since Id imagine they are temp files, you are prompted to install at shutdown, otherwise you will loose the files.

To change the Start>control panel>automatic updates.

If you have updates ready to install, you will see a yellow shield in your system tray.. :thumbsup:

Very good advise. Also to stop it from coming up as regular make sure you are upto fully by going to Windows update.

It sounds to me like there's an update that's stuck in a startup loop.

You may want to try this free tool to re-register the Windows Update dll's: http://wiki.djlizard.net/Dial-a-fix#Standard_version

Also, you may want to try this free tool to see if there's an entry in the Run Once category that's stuck there: http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml

Thanks, guys! I'll change those settings, and tomorrow when I'm not feeling like crap, I'll download those tools and run both. :D

I had the same problem and come to find out the update that it was trying to do had a problem and would fail every time. So the update tried everytime it was shut down. Go into windows upgrade and go to thwe fiole it is trying to do and next to it check the place where it says hide this upgrade. That is how I finally got mine to stop.

Better than hiding it, find out why it didn't install and resolve the problem.

Go to Windows or Microsoft Update (whichever you use by default) and review your update history.

When you find one with a problem click where it tells you to and follow directions or contact Microsoft Support.
