Hi all, after one of the latest winows updates, the one that says when you go and shut down that the updates will be installed and then the PC will be shut off, well after 2 hours i discovered when it had just frozen on the update.

and now everytime i go and shut down the update message is there but it does not try and update it just shuts down!

How can i fix this please

Take care

Click start, control panel, security centre, turn off automatic updates, reboot

If it says turn off to install, ignore that and restart
