Latest BIOS and Chipset update would be very helpful to resolve the issue. Especially BIOS update contains very important fixes and enhanced functions. Latest release is 4/2/2007 dated. If yours older than this you can update. After BIOS update you can also update the chipset if issue persists. Here is the link for all drivers you need.

SOURCE: Windows updates

What you should do, is simply reset the auto update program. Basically, turn all automatic updating off and then reboot the computer. After that, reactivate the updater and see if it works correctly. If it still will not work correctly; I'd go about updating with the online updater.

http://update.microsoft.com/

Using that url, you should be able to access the online update system. It all depends on what version of windows you're using.

Now, if you're running windows Vista; there have been a LOT of updates recently. Such as daily windows defender updates, security patches, and yes, quite a bit of performance patches. It could be that you're just seeing the same names on some updates.

Also, if you switch it to notify you but don't download you can manually download and install each update at a time. This could help you find a possible fix if microsoft has already fixed that problem.

SOURCE: window vista is not booting the computer

Try starting in safe mode. If it does boot in safe mode then go to HELP, THEN SYSTEM RESTORE, pick a date before you had these problems. Good luck. You start in safe mode by pressing F8 then selecting SAFE MODE from the menu.

How to configure automatic updates in Windows


Microsoft routinely puts out updates for current versions of Windows (and Windows applications). Some of these are critical updates, such as security patches, while others just tweak a program or fix a bug. Your operating system will run better if you stay up to date on the important updates, and an easy way to do this is by using Windows automatic updates.

To turn on automatic updates, right click on My Computer (in Windows Vista or 7, right click Computer) and select Properties. Then go to the Automatic Updates tab. Here you will see the different update options.

The safest choice is to pick Automatic, which will check for updates on a schedule that you choose (daily or weekly, at a certain time) and download any new updates it finds. However, if you want some control over which updates are installed, you can choose either of the next two options:

- Download updates for me, but let me choose when to install them

or

- Notify me but don't automatically download or install them.

If you pick either of these two choices, a yellow shield icon with an exclamation point will appear in the system notification tray when new updates are available, and you can download or install them by clicking on it.

The last option is to turn off automatic updates completely. Choosing this option may leave your computer at risk, because you won't get any security fixes Microsoft comes out with. If you do choose to turn automatic updates off, you should check for updates manually once in a while by visiting Microsoft's Windows Update web page at WindowsUpdate.Microsoft.com.

Whichever option you choose, click Apply at the bottom of the window to save your preference.

If are blaming the updates you can remove (uninstall) them. You can also restore your system to a point before the updates you think are causing the problem. If Windows finds updates you can select which to install. Reject all hardware related updates.

Computer turns itself on


Look for the Windows Update link on the Start Menu: Start - All Programs - Windows Update.

Click on Windows Update.

When you get to the Update area, look for a setting which tells the computer what time to automatically download and install Windows updates. These will be primarily software, drivers, program updates, etc., from Microsoft. It soulds as if your computer is automaticaly updating your computer, or checking for updates.

BTW, the default time for this as set in Windows is 3 AM, local time - meaning 3 AM Eastern, or 3 AM Pacific, etc - and you have indicated that you found this activity sometime after 3 AM, which makes sense.

Having found that Update section, simply look for a box, or radio button (circle) and de-select the automatic update, or change the time to a time you are awake during the day, or other convenient time.

I don't think you have a problem, just a setting that is working ...

Cheers!

How to disable automatic updates on XP windows?


To turn on Automatic Updates yourself, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, click Run, type sysdm.cpl, and then press ENTER.
  2. Click the Automatic Updates tab, and then click to select one of the following options. We recommend that you select the Automatic (recommended) Automatically download recommended updates for my computer and install them option.
    • Automatic (recommended) Automatically download recommended updates for my computer and install them

      If you select this option, Windows recognizes when you are online and uses your Internet connection to find updates on the Windows Update Web site or on the Microsoft Update Web site that apply to your computer. Updates are downloaded automatically in the background, and you are not notified or interrupted during this process. An icon appears in the notification area of your taskbar when the updates are being downloaded. You can point to the icon to view the download status. When the download is complete, you receive another message in the notification area so that you can review the updates that are scheduled for installation.
      • Click to select the day and time for scheduled updates to download and install. You can schedule Automatic Updates for any time of day. However, your computer must be on at the scheduled time for updates to be installed.
      • You can choose to install the updates as soon as they are finished downloading. To do this, click the download message (or update icon), and then click Install. If you choose not to install the updates when they finish downloading, Windows starts the installation on your set schedule.
    • Download updates for me, but let me choose when to install them

      If you select this option, Windows recognizes when you are online and uses your Internet connection to automatically download updates from the Windows Update Web site or from the Microsoft Update Web site. An icon appears in the notification area of your taskbar when the updates are being downloaded. You can point to the icon to view the download status. When the download is complete, you receive another message in the notification area so that you can review the updates that are scheduled for installation.
      • When you want to install the downloaded update, click the message (or update icon), and then click Install to install the update.
      • If you do not want to install a downloaded update, click Details, and then click to clear the check box next to that update to decline it.
    • Notify me but don't automatically download or install them

      If you select this option, Windows recognizes when you are online and uses your Internet connection to search for downloads from the Windows Update Web site or from the Microsoft Update Web site. An Automatic Updates icon and message appear in the notification area of your taskbar when new updates are available to download or to install.
      • Click the icon or message to view the updates. If you do not want to download a selected update, click to clear the check box next to that update to decline it. Click Start Download to download the selected updates. The Automatic Updates icon remains in the notification area of your taskbar while the updates are being downloaded. You can point to the icon to view the download status.
      • When the download is complete, you receive another message in the notification area stating that the updates are ready to install. Click the Automatic Updates icon or the message, and then click Install to install the updates.
  3. Click OK.

You need to have a validated copy of Windows, then you REALLY DO WANT to update windows often. The updates typically deal with security based issues. And all of this updating is FREE, except for your time, of course.

How do i stop the automatic updates


There should be a place to disable it. For Windows updates in XP, go to control panel, Automatic updates, and turn it off there. It can also be disabled in IE. For HP updates, there has to be an icon on the taskbar (I would think), or perhaps under "Programs" you'll find an HP support program that will allow you to disable updates. Personally, I would not disable most updates. I can agree... I hate the IE add-ons and taskbars that just take up space. Give me simple... cut the glitz and hype. However, the security updates are important. I would select a time to update when I am not using the computer. For a browser, I prefer Google Chrome. It is simple, but very flexible... thinks more like me. If Windows is user friendly, I am NOT a user! I hope this helps.
