So when I shut down my PC it offers to update before it will shut down. So I accept and then before 1 of 7 gets updated, I get red circle with white cross error saying that svhost crashed and then I have to turn the pc manually as everything stops working. What should I do if my system restore to the previous date is not working. :blink: :whistling:

Yes they are. What happens, is I click Start->Shut down, and then it says on the Shut Down button, that the Windows will update before the system turns off. Below there is also link available to shut down without an update. When I click shut down with update, it gets to the point where it starts updating (the harddrive is blinking alot) and then the crash message appears, and then the harddrive is not doing anything, and I waited for an hour at one point, and nothing happened.

Click start, control panel, security centre, at the bottom, click automatic updates, put the dot in off, click apply, click change the way security centre alerts me, remove the tick for automatic updates, click OK

Try shutting the PC down

Run Microsoft Update
