For the time being, but not recommended for ever, turn off Windows Updates.
Goto the Control Panel,(from the Start menu bubble), then if you are in Category view select "Review your computer's status" under System and Security, then find the Windows Update option in the left hand collumn. If you are in Classic view, click on the Windows Update option.
In the Windows Update page, click the "Change Settings" option in the left hand column.
Change the settings to "Never check for updates", and remove the tick for "Recommended updates".
See if that halts the updating procedure.
FYI, that first update in that latest list wasn't large, and was nothing special as I recall.
So, summat's up!
At least you should now be able to investigate further.
The latest Windows Update that imposed itself onto my machine (A six-pack) is not installing but seems to be freezing, unfinished.
At least, its not finishing number 1 of six in many hours. So it's either a ginormous update, which I doubt, or summats up.
For three days I have been having to switch off power and reboot "Windows Normally" to access my stuff.
What I would like to do is get rid of this six-pack that wants to update so can anyone please tell me where to find it and how to squash it out of existence?
The prospect of switching off and rebooting "Normally" for ever is not a pleasant one.
