Turn off without installing updates

Asked By 660 points N/A Posted on -


Guys, why every time I'm going to shut down my computer, there's a message below the buttons,

"Click here to turn off without installing updates". I always click that message when I'm going to turn off my computer because when I click Turn off button it takes for a long minute before it will shut down. Why there's a message? Is there any way to avoid or remove that message? Please somebody here will help me? I'm just confused with that message, and I don't have any idea how to remove it. Thanks in advance.

Turn off without installing updates


Hi Dwight,

  • That message always appears because you have downloaded updates that have not been installed. If you see a notification in the taskbar that there are updates which are available, you can click it then choose the option to download and INSTALL it immediately, so it will not install when you turn off your computer.
  • But if you really do not want to install the updates you can turn it off. Go to Start > Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance > System then click the Automatic Updates tab. Under the notification settings choose the option "Turn off automatic updating. I want to update my computer manually".

Turn off without installing updates

  • Windows XP regularly will activate the function of Windows Update to search online and automatically download updates.
  • To disable the automatic update, open the system icon in the Control Panel (or my PC with the right mouse button and select Properties) and choose the automatic updates tab.
  • Set the Manual Windows Update.
  • You can also uncheck this option to activate again in a moment of automatic update.
  • Now click the OK button to save the settings.
  • To manually check for updates, open Internet Explorer and select Windows Update in the Tools menu.
