Windows 7: Problems Installing Updates (My Comp. Doesn't Shut Down)

Problems Installing Updates (My Comp. Doesn't Shut Down)

I'm wondering if anyone here can help me. Whenever, I'm installing updates my computer doesn't shut down and it hangs there. It goes up to installing update 2of 2 or 1 of 2 and it just hangs there and does not shut down. Sometimes I try to install the update manually and it still does the same, just hangs there. I can shut down my computer while installing the updates and start it up without losing any information. This started last week but before last week it was installing updates just perfectly. It doesn't cause any major problems but it is a nuissance to deal with. Thanks.
