Windows 7: Install the same update every shutdown

I’m using Windows 7 and start getting annoyed because every time I shutdown my laptop, the Windows will install the same amount of updates. So I checked the history of updates and found that the update is failed. So I install the update manually and solved the problem. If you get the same trouble, you can do these:

  1. Check your update history. Go to Start Control Panel System and SecurityWindows Update.
  2. On the left panel, click View update history.
  3. Find the repeated failed update. Note the name and number of the update.
  4. Go to http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/ and search for the update you needed.
  5. Download and install it manually.

Hopefully your problem will go away.

Windows 7: Shutdown without installing updates

I’m using Windows 7 and start getting annoyed by installing updates on shutdown because sometimes I need to shutdown it quickly but installing updates may take a long time. Don’t disable your automatic updates cause it’s really important to keep updating your Windows 7 from known bugs. But if sometimes you need to shutdown quickly without installing updates, you can do this:

  1. Log Off your computer instead off shutdown it.
  2. Press CTRL + ALT + DEL.
  3. On the bottom right side of the screen there is a shutdown icon. Click the arrow and choose shutdown.
  4. Your Windows 7 will be shutdown directly without installing updates.
