Hello Gordie,

It's Windows Update installing available updates at shutdown. Since they are older slower PCs, it will probably take a while for it to finish installing the updates before shutting down.

Shut Down Windows - Enable or Disable "Install Updates and Shut Down"

Hope this helps,
Shawn

In that case, go ahead and restart the PC. Press and hold the power button until it shuts down if needed. Afterwards, restart the PC, and check for any Windows Updates.
