Have you opened up Windows Update and ran a check for updates? Perhaps it
has checked but not downloaded them? Try doing a manual check/install then
reboot when it's done. Keep doing this until it doesn't find anything. Do
you still have the icon?

I'm on Win 7.

For the last two nights, when I go to shut down, there's the little
icon indicating that there are updates to install. No big deal -
except it never happens. That is, no message such as "Installing 1 of a
gazillion updates."
The PC just goes off.

The icon is still there, as I "speak." Is this normal? If so, why?
Inquiring minds want to know.
