Installing updates - STILL?!

August 29, 2009 at 15:05:07
Specs: Windows Vista , Windows Vista Home
The other evening my laptop all of a sudden shut off, and then restarted - it was "installing updates". 48hrs later, after being switched off etc it is STILL "installing updates".
Why is it taking so long ?
Is there anything I can do to stop the update? E.g. Button codes etc?

Can you get to the task manager?

How do you know when a politician is lying? His mouth is moving.

sounds like SP3 being downloaded. Depending on your connection it could take a long time.

What you can do is go into control panel/security center and turn off automatic update. That should stop whatever is loading up.
What I usually do is select notify me but DON'T download them. Then I load up the criticals using the custom setting. That way you can see what you are getting before downloading them.

Some HELP in posting on plus free progs and instructions Cheers
