Windows updates causing problem with internet access


Likes # 1

My PC is automatically downloading updates which results in failure to connect to the internet. I have a wireless router/modem which is hard-wired to my PC. At the moment the only way I can get around this is to run System Restore to return the PC to its previous state but this results in my PC automatically downloading the updates again when I shut down the PC. I am now trapped in a cycle of running system restore and the PC downloading the updates again. Please help me break this vicious circle. Footnote: A total of 20 updates download each time so I can't be sure exactly which one is causing the problem.
