    when i did a restart, windows notified me it was installing updates and not
    to turn off the power as windows would restart itself.

    I keep getting a message the 2 of 3 updates installed. next says do not
    turn off computer.\\

    well what do I do when the update never ends?

    TIA

    You may just have to reboot, perhaps even get into safe mode.

    What Operating System and service pack level is this? (I know where you
    posted, I'd like to be more specific than you have 'volunteered' just by
    your posting location...)
