Installing Microsoft updates

Since 01/01/2012 there have been 60 recorder updates (KB2656351) and various other multable updates that have been installed time after time.

Every night when I switch my computer off it tells me not to unplug or switch off untill 1 or 2 updates have been installed.

There also seems to be a lot of hard drive noise as though it was going all the time. On my other computer (a laptop also running windows 7 there is nothing like this. I have run CC Cleaner and malware bites and nothing is reported as unusual.

Any ideas please

After trying to uninstall some of the 60 odd KB2656351 files I gave up,there was also a lot of other duplicated files in the update section. I was also having bother with my scanner which I had tried to fix a few times over the last few months without any success. In the end I decided to use the computer Recovery discs as I have had this computer running on on the first instalation from over 2 years ago, which in my world is damm good going. I thought it needed cleaning out as it was getting a bit slow any way. Not to mention the closing down problems I was having. Switch off the computer at night and it would take well over 25 minutes before it powered off.

So thank you for trying to he;p but once I got going it was not so bad after all.
