Windows 7: Constant Updates Everytime Computer Shuts Down

Constant Updates Everytime Computer Shuts Down

Hi,

I would like to kindly seek help regarding my problem. Every time I shut down my laptop, there would always be the notice "installing update 1 of 1". This has been happening for a while and I'm wondering what's going on.

In addition, many random files have been created in the Local C drive as shown:

Corrupted Image removed - please re- upload

I don't know if I should just delete them but anyway, I chose not to just in case. Does anyone know what's wrong? Thanks in advance

Regards,
Jermyn

Can't see the files--"Corrupted Image removed - please re- upload"

As far as updates, that's not uncommon.

* Is this a new computer?
* Tell us about your System specs.
* What update{s} are you referring to? KB *******?
* Tell us about your Update Set up.
* Have you checked in Event Viewer > Application re errors pertaining to this problem?
* Have you a System Restore spot PRIOR to this happening?

Also include any other relevant info that may enable us to understand your problem better.

Hi,

Thanks for the prompt replies Here's the picture again:

Is this a new computer?
Not really, it's more than a year old.
* Tell us about your System specs.
It's a HP laptop running on Windows 7 Home Premium, Service Pack 1
Intel Core 2 Duo CPU P9300 @2.26 GHz
RAM: 4 GB
32-bit operating system
* What update{s} are you referring to? KB *******?
Actually I'm not sure which update it is because a code isn't shown when windows automatically updates the system just before shut down.
* Tell us about your Update Set up.
By this do you mean how I set the updates to be installed? If so, I guess it's automatic?
* Have you checked in Event Viewer > Application re errors pertaining to this problem?
I didn't find any errors under that section hmm...
* Have you a System Restore spot PRIOR to this happening?

Not that I know of.

I hope I was helpful enough in terms of providing more information :/ Thanks

Regards,
Jermyn

The folders look like Key Tokens but I can't tell where they are. Are the folders in the root directory of C:?

Are there any files in those folders?

Yea, they are in the root of C. Most of them are empty. :/

And the ones that aren't have what?

What software have you loaded recently?

I suspect they're temporary files and may be removed but just making sure. I'm beginning to feel like a dentist.
