Windows 7: New Windows Updates - Are they the correct ones for my computer

New Windows Updates - Are they the correct ones for my computer

I have just had the new Windows updates installed on my computer and I am not sure they are the correct updates for my Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit.

I also had the issue where my computer was still on at the time the the updates were installed. Does this cause any harm to the computer.

I also have attached the file where I found the CBS logs file - am I effectively part of a Homegroup or can you not tell by my attachment?

I just wish to ensure that the updates that have the extension x86 are the correct updates for my computer.

Thank you and I hope that I provided the correct information

Thank you for the prompt reply.

I read the posting instructions - so hopefully I did alright.

I panic.

I also noticed in my programs menu that I have Microsoft Silverlight - is this still required - it may have just been updated.

I am looking at uninstalling a lot programs - but hesitant on MS products.

How do 'trick' your computer not to shut down your computer and cause your computer to crash. I had some MS Word and Excel documents that crashed

Of course computer was on! Updates can only be installed if computer is on.

What happens exactly? Does Word/Excel crash?
Or does windows crash... forcing a BSOD and restart?

Hello Thanks for assisting again.

As my computer will not shut down at present - the whole system shut down and the programs that were open crashed.

For instance the MS Word document that I was working on.

Here is what I faced with. No error messages or BSOD - I have googled the subject and this person suggests as per this website - would this help in future -
Trick Windows Into Shutting Down Without Installing Updates

Thanks. I know you do not like much talk

Can you normally close WORD (save document and close)? Can you logoff succesfully?

I have altered the settings of the Windows Update so that I can control when it closes my computer.
I guess I have been stupid and leaving open MS Office programs like Word and Excel and causing crashes.

Prior to crashing in word I get a message saying that my computer is having memory issues. But after a clean not it seems to have resolved itself.

No BSOD - I will post if that situation becomes an issue.

I also did not want to loose my information and tried to put off the updates. I guess I am silly.

Thank you again
