Eventhough Windows Updates is set to check for updates but let me
decide whether to download and install, when I click on the Start orb,
the Shut Down button wants to install updates and then shut down.
I think those updates were downloaded and installed *BEFORE* you choose
the "Let me decide..." option. You should just install those pending
updates when you have time.
Actually the "Let me decide..." was chosen years and years ago. Updates
have been piling up for a long time. But, your statement about pending
updates made me think that I should look to see what updates had been
downloaded and 'needed' to be installed.
There are 43 important updates and nine optional updates. Of the 43
optional updates, eight had already downloaded amd were:
Security Update for Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack Service Pack 3
(KB4018354) Security Update for Microsoft Office Excel 2007 (KB4018353)
Security Update for Microsoft Office OneNote 2007 (KB3114456)
Security Update for Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 (KB4011200)
Update for Microsoft Office Publisher 2007 (KB4011203)
Microsoft Office File Validation Add-in
Security Update for Microsoft Silverlight (KB4023307), and
Update for Microsoft Security Essentials - 188.8.131.52 (KB3037257)
Odd that that last one is from 2/10/2015, and I've had lots of Updates for
Microsoft Security Essentials installed since. Seems like nearly one a
After hiding those updates that had been downloaded, the Shut down button
no longer said "installs updates and shuts down your computer". If I
unhid any hidden update that had been downloaded, the "installs updates
and shuts down your computer" reappeaared on the Shut down button.
So, looks like this is solved.
Thank you for the clue, Mr. Man-wai Chang.
