Why does Windows tell me “Installing updates 1 to 9” every time I shut down?

Why do I get the “Installing updates 1 to 9” message every time I shut down? How do I fix it, and what’s gone wrong?

    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.

    It might not have installed the updates properly, go into windows update (under control panel) and check to make sure it is installed or install from there. That might fix your problem.

    Do as Alan suggested first, does it state that they have failed to install or just that they need installing as windows will not shut down until the updates have been installed so how are you turning your PC off. If you are forcing a shut down then you will receive this message until you let them finish installing.

    you have activated automatic updating and forcing shutdown so its installing all the downloaded updates at that time

    which windows version do you have, normally windows should create restore point so you can revert back. If in windows update center you have message like failed to install then something wrong with the update center.

    Go to Windows Update and see what the 9 updates are. Right click on each of them and set them to Hidden.
    Restart your computer.
    Go back to Windows Update and unhide ONE of them them attempt to install it.
    Unhide the rest one by one and attempt to install them individually.
    It sounds as though you are getting a conflict between two of the updates.

    Hello, as you may know there are some windows updates that need to be installed at shutdown or need a restart. One of the way this happens is when for whatever reason your computer was shutdown when updates were being installed. The only way for this message to disappear is to let the update finish installing.
