So it downloads them but doesn't install them right? have you tried doing them manually but only a few at a time as appose to all at once, and also try downloading them but don't restart your computer to install them let it do that when you shut down.

no i believe they were downloaded before the windows repair,

but now it is repaired what happens is when he goes to turn off computer he has that little update sign over the power button and text at the bottom that says turn off the computer without installing updates,

it might be very simple and i jus update it manually but i wont get the ocmputer till tomorrow so is there any kind of registry thing of some way of telling the computer that the updates are no longer there if the manual updates dont work ??
