Does anyone know how to fix it? Not a big problem but kinda annoying.

I'm not seeing where your Start Orb Menu is stating you have Windows 7 Updates in your picture. Why would such information be found on the Start Orb menu.

Doesn't the shield next to shutdown mean updates are going to be installed?

Really don't know, I have never seen that shield there before on any system.
What do you get if you tick on the Shield?

You get whatever action is written to the right of the shield. In this case, the computer shuts down.

I had the shield ever since i first got Windows 7, but it would only appear when updated where going to be installed. I have it set to download install automatically.

However i dont have any updates as shown in OP, but it appears every time i turn pc on.

Well I guess the reason I have never seen the shield is because i never do auto updates or auto notification. I update everything manually.

Mitch656 - You're not crazy, the yellow shield on the Shutdown button is supposed to indicate that when you click Shutdown, updates will be installed BEFORE the computer will Shutdown and power off. Can't explain why it's there if yiu have no updates though.

I have a idea. Reboot the computer and let Windows 7 complete the Updates and see if the little shield goes away.
