Updates at Shutdown


R

rogeepete

When I shutdown, I continue to receive a choice to install a
Windows Update or Shut down without the update. I choose
Install and the update is installed and the computer shuts down.
But every time now, I get this choice and keep installing the
update. This has been happening repeatedly for a couple of
weeks, it seems.

I cannot get the screen where I can simply shut down.

Thanks for any help

What happens if you:
1. initiate the same update
2. then reboot
3. and shut down only after this reboot ?

This takes immaturity to a new level. Your mother would be proud, unless,
of course, you *are* the mother.

Letting XP install updates at shutdown generally works okay but
sometimes there is a problem.

If you are having a problem, you will not be able to see what the
problem is if you let XP install updates at shutdown (unless you start
looking at and deciphering the update log files).

To fix the problem, first you need to know what the problem is. You
have not identified the problem yet - except that something is not
working.

Use Internet Explorer, Tools, Windows Update, Custom to see what
Microsoft thinks about your current setup. From there you can see
what updates need to be applied and then install them, then watch them
install and if there is a problem you will then be able to see what
update is causing the problem and then can you decide what to do about
it.

Once you know what the problem is with the updates, you can fix it.
If you don't know what the problem is, you could be in for a long and
frustrating waste of otherwise productive time cycles trying various
suggestions.

Sometimes the auto update feature gets hosed and just "reseting" it
will clear up the problem (and give you fresh log files), but you
don't even know what the problem is yet.

I suspect you're right; he's not very good at posing. Or spilling 'n' gremmr
eider fer dat mattah. He's posed as at least two others I've noticed and
probably more I haven't noticed; it's not something I watch for unless it's
a smelly post.

HTH,
