Windows 7: Non-loading updates interfere with shutting down or going to Sleep?

Non-loading updates interfere with shutting down or going to Sleep?

There are two new updates (one for Skype desktop and one for Windows Framework 4.5.2 (KB2901983) - 4.5.1 is already on the computer) that will not load. Of course, i'd like help with getting them to load, but until that time, the problem is that every time I go to put the computer to Sleep, I don't get Sleep in the field of "What do you want your computer to do," instead I get "Install Updates and Shut Down." Until these updates appeared, the field would always self-select Sleep. How can I hide or get rid of these updates (until I learn how to load them) so that I can go directly to Sleep and not have to scroll the field to Sleep?

EDIT:
Got answer on how to hide unwanted or unloadable updates:

When you open Windows Updates and download them, let it download the updates it won't install, then right click each each update and select "Hide Update," it should look like this:

I've got Skype Portable on my desktop (couldn't get the desktop version to work) and the Skype update (KB2876229) for Skype 7 won't load because it is probably for the desktop version of Skype?

As far as .NET is concerned, your best bet is probably to remove the existing installations completely first using Aaron Stebner's Cleanup tool, then install the 4.5.2 version with a clean base.

The Skype one isn't an update - it's offered to everyone whether they have Skype or not. If you hide it, it will re-appear the next time the change the version number - so be prepared to keep hiding it every couple of months.

I understand what you are suggesting, Noel, but let me ask will removing 4.5.1 cause any problems before I am able to dl 4.5.2? What's the possibility that I won't be able to load on 4.5.2 and then not be able to load back 4.5.1?

4.5.2 is effectively Service Pack 2 of 4.5 You can download the full installer for offline install (which may be a good idea) from here...
Download Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.2 (Offline Installer) for Windows Vista SP2, Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2008 SP2, Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2 from Official Microsoft Down

I have to admit to not having noticed any difference between the two - but then I tend not to be using applications that require either.

I'd like to upload the file, but it is way too long...1108308 characters, only 20000 characters can be copied, and as for attachment, the file is over twice as big as can be attached. Suggestions?

Never compressed a file before, but here goes using WinZip7...

EDIT
OK, the first try didn't work because managed attachments can't handle *.7zip. I am now trying to compress the file with Windows7 compression app as described here: https://askleo.com/should_i_use_wind...e_compression/

Upload didn't work with the Win7 compression app. Can't figure why not as although the original file was 2.21MB, the compressed size on disk (as shown in properties of this file) is 560KB. Looks like the forum's app can't read the window's compression??? I'm going to see if I can DL a trial of winzip..... or, maybe you have another suggestion on how to get the file to you? I could email the 7zip file to you... BTW, in "Send to" there is no selection for compression?

EDIT2:
When installing WinZip I keep getting Error 1303 saying that I meed to install as an Administrator. But I am logged on as the Administrator and the install file's properties/security does list full permissions.
