Windows 7: Recurring Problem with Updates

Recurring Problem with Updates

I have 2 computers with Windows 7. My laptop has Professional and my netbook has Starter.

The problem I'm having is with the Starter version. Every other time I boot up, I get the message that Windows is configuring updates. It finally times out and says that the update failed. It finishes booting up and then when I log off, it will say that Windows is installing updates. This has become a recurring problem. Any ideas?
