When a whole bunch of updates are installing at one time, give your system time to finish, it will if no errors presented.
Hi I have gave it umpteen times to finish the install allowing it to shut down everyday after I shut down but every time I log back on they are still there to start it all over again. It is driving me mad. Lol.
Does it ask you to install the updates ? Use the custom install, If yes, uncheck all and click "ok" then at the next prompt click "Do not remind me of these updates again". If not you can still click the updates icon in your clock tray and cancel all updates, when it restarts you can do the above.
