Running W7 Home premium sp1 on Zoostorm Intel 3Ghz i5 8Gb RAM. Each time I shut down I get: 2 windows updates that need to be installed. I looked in the database on several forums and thought I had found the solution, following the instructions that apparently came from MS site, and did the following, went into services stopped updates, changed the folder Windows> Software Distribution added OLD to the file name. Returned to services reactivated the updates and rebooted. However this does not seemed to have cured the problem. If I go to Update history, the following update shows 5 times as being a successful installed : Security Update for Microsoft .NET Framework 4 on XP, Server 2003, Vista, Windows 7, Server 2008, Server 2008 R2 for x64 (KB2656351). Running Belarc Advisor it shows two copies of this KB2656351 as two critical updates still required by the computer. The other update that it appears not to recognize as installed is (KB2600217) Further info: I have just run the Microsoft Fix it program and it states it has "Repaired Windows Update components" but it makes no difference on shutdown I am still getting the "Please do not power off or unplug your machine - installing updates 1of 2"I have uninstalled the 2 updates stopped the automatic updating, done a clean reboot reinstalled the two updates manually. Still with the same problem. Tried system restore and reinstalled again no luck. The update history keeps saying the update is successful, But the MS update system does not recognize the update as being installed. Any advice appreciated.
