I asked this earlier and thought it was a new laptop getting up to speed but there is DEFINITEY a problem with the updates not loading on my new Sony Vaio windows 7 laptop, as soon as I log off there are 24 updates and it says they are installing but as soon as I log on again and then log off the updates (24) are still having to be installed, I have opened control panel and chosen automatic updates but this is still happening, what can I do?? thanks LAPTOPDUNCE (is it something to do with the UAC that has to be disabled??)

You will have more control over Windows Updates if you alter your settings to "Download updates but let me choose whether to install them" - this is done via Control Panel - Windows Updates - Change Settings. You can then choose between the critical updates and optional updates.

It is sometimes better to install either single updates which will take longer or a few at a time also with Windows Updates and Software Updates I find it is best to keep these updates separate.

I actually found that by uncrossing the box for microft PRODUCT updates did the trick, all the 23 updates were for a microsoft word/excel programme that I dont have on this laptop, now it just does all the downloads specific to the windows 7 properly on automatic updates and I dont get any of those annoying updates on shutdown anymore, thanks LAPTODUNCE
