Re: c drive filled
It might not help but sounds to me like it updated a lot of updates. You might have to let it keep starting and rebooting till it has installed all the updates.How do you know it filled your hard drive?

There are a couple possibilities...first, when you say shut down, do you mean that it restarts, or it actually shuts completely off? Windows update will auto-run weekly and restart the system if necessary. Otherwise, I'd suspect something with your antivirus scanner settings.
that message is from the automatic updates windows makes from time to time ...and this message usually appears after a fresh install with the operation system out of date ..and if you have the automatic updates ticked for to be made automatically ..The thing to be done is either let it install the updates...and it will shut down by itself...or ..start windows..and go to control panel ..and on the automatic updates...stop the updating process..This will cause a message to appear in the tray system every time ..to warn you that your computer is out of date ..and so ...but it has no real distress cause it will run like a charm even without the updates...(probably even faster ..cause if your computer is a little limited in resources the updates will slow it down a little .. So ..this message is not a pest ..but the windows updating your operation system ..the only issue is when it is in error and takes more than the time it should ...usually it should not take more than a couple of hours for all 55 updates to be installed ...and this in case you have a slow computer...
One thing you can do that make some changes in automatic updates.
Just follow is these steps:-
2.Type services.msc then hit enter.
3.Find out the Automatic updates or windows updates(in case of Windows Vista or Windows 7).
4.Change it to manual or you can stop that(Depends on your wish).
What programs are installed on the machine? there may be a file that's conflicting with one of the updates. You may leave automatic updates turned off. Looking for the culprit will require and will be easier if a tech will check the computer onsite or thru remote access.
If you truly believe the problem happened right after installing the new mouse, then you should start by uninstalling the software for it. Go to Control Panel -> Software -> Uninstall. If this fails, you can use the System Restore utility to rollback the Windows registry to a time before you first installed the new mouse software. Have you tried to unplug the mouse and not use it, atleast on the attempted shutdown process?
You might have connected to interent and your windows updates are
automatically downloaded. You need to install those updates. Actually
it did not shut but power goes off may be it was on stand by mode. Now
shut down (press Alt+F4) your laptop from menu. Choose Install Updates
and Shut Down from the drop down list.
Now it will install updates and after completion it will automatically shut down your laptop. Hope it works
