    I have Windows XP Pro SP2
    The problem is that everytime I shut down I have to go through updating 1 of
    1 updates then the machine shuts down. I then boot up and wait a short while
    then shut down again and it goes through the same process again, this happens
    all the time.
    My guess is that the update is not being recorded after the install hence it
    tries again next time.
    Where do I start correcting this problem because it's not funny anymore?
    Thanks for any help offered.

    Have you got updates set to download without you saying yes or no?
    Or does the yellow shield appear in the bottom right of the screen?
    In any case its not difficult to find what you have been offered. - if you
    can be bothered.
