I am running Windows XP Service Pack 3 and Avast Anti-virus. I have recently noted that everytime (last 10-15 times) I shut my computer down I get a message that automatic updates are being run and one update is run. In the past I would get an update every month or so. Other than these updates running the computer runs fine. Is this something that I should just leave alone or is there a fix for this?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Best thing to do is when the computer is running look for the yellow exclamation mark on shield icon down by the clock. This will tell you which update(s) are pending and may be getting stuck. You can install them from there as opposed to on shut-down.

Thanks. I did as you indicated. The message I got was after running the updates was: Some Updates can not be Installed - "Microsoft .NETFramewpork3.5 Servuce Pack 1 and .NET Framework 3.5 Family update for .NET version 2.0 through3.5 (KB951847)x86"

What does this mean, and more importantly what do I do?

Neil, Still no success with download. After downloading and attempting to download manually the sequence I get is 1. Setup loading installation components - 2. I Accept use of program - 3. Downloading then after several minutes I get Download complete you may now disconnect from the internet - 4. Then "an error has occurred in setup"

Ideas?
Thanks!
