updates "sticking" on shutdown

When I go to sut down the desktop, I decide to accept the offered updates.
The PC never gets to shut-down. "Do not shut down or disconnect computer" and another message showing "Installing 1 of 1" alternates on screen.
This has gone on for several hours before I finally intervene and shut it down.
No updates appear to have been installed.
It happens every time on shut-down.
XP Professional is the OS.

Any suggestions?

Try switching off your antivirus before shutting down. Do you know which updates were the last to be downloaded? (Check your Updates history - they may be listed there)
