Unhappy Updates !@#$%^&

It seems like the last 10 times or more that I shut off my computer it says it's installing updates. But when I look in the installed updates folder, it shows nothing ????

Any way to shut off automatic updates??? These are not showing up as Windows updates...

Default Re: Updates !@#$%^&

go in to the control panel and there will be an option there to turn it off,

Maybe try running windows update manually as well

Can you take a look at the windows update history and see if any are failed. If none are failed it may be that you need to delete the files for windows updates and start over. If you see no failed updates let me know and i will get you the instructions on how to do that.
