Windows keeps configuring updates everytime I shut down and reboot

    I am using the Basic Vista Home edition, but every time I shut down and
    reboot, I get the message "Windows is configuring 3 updates". Also my Admin
    rights were taken away from my admin account and I had to use the hidden
    default admin account to do any admin stuff. I have scanned my system with
    Avast, Malware Bytes, Advanced Registry Fix, Advanced System Care, Tune Up
    Utilities, a-squared and others.

    I have also done a SFC /scannow with a Command Prompt but I get the message
    "There is a system repair pending, please restart your computer and run SFC

    I am pretty clued up with Vista but this one is baffling me. I have
    temporarily stopped Windows from installing automatic updates to see if that
    would help, but it hasn't.

    Has anyone else had this problem?

    I have been having the same problem! I'm not sure how to fix it. Have you
    figured anything out?
