    This depends on what the updates are, and if they’re being installed correctly. However, recently, I was getting the same problem in regards to updating .NET Framework 4. If that is indeed a problem, uninstall .NET Framework Client Profile from the computer, restart, and see if the same updates are installed again. This works because the installs are not being properly integrated, and they keep reinstalling. Windows will then detect an important update to install, and the problem should be fixed. Best of luck!

    Windows is operating software for the masses. At windows, they release things before they are sure its perfect. Hence, to make it better and improve on things, they keep on sending you Updates. If you don’t want to update, go to Control Panel->System and Security->Windows Update->Change Settings. Then under the important updates column select Check for Updates but let me choose when to download or install them option. However, it is recommended that you install whatever important update Microsoft throws at you as it is helpful.

    When this happens ,sometime it can finish,but if it is totally screwed up,doing a backup or system restore will be good.

    You enabled automatic updates. Windows will download them, and install them when you shut down your system. Go to Control Panel and disable it. Done.

    Perhaps update is failing. In Vista or Windows 7, goto Windows Update and click on View update history. Are there a lot of update failures of the same 9 updates? If so, double click on a failed update to get the error code. Google it for fixes or ammend your question here.
