My computer installs updates every time I shut down

Pretty much, every time I shut down my computer it "installs updates 1 of 1". I've installed it 3 or 4 times a day for the past few days and it just won't stop now. When I check Windows Update, the last 15 or so items have all been "Security Update For Windows Vista KB981852, Status: Successful, Importance: Important".

So apparently, all the installations have been successful, but it still won't quit. Does anyone have any idea what I should do? Thanks a lot!

I would let it Update Eventually it will Stop you may want to check for updates and install them manually by going to Start>All Programs and Selecting Windows Update

Hope This Helps,
Josh

This was happening to me as well as hanging after any deleting, renaming, or moving of any file. I'm sure the updates are trying to perform the same actions and hanging when closing.

I finally corrected the problem by reindexing.

>Control Panel >System & Maintaince >Indexing Options >Index Default

Set the updated to notify. When the annoying update arrives, mark it to hide (do not install). Then reset your update to automatic (I like mine on notify) and that should be that.
