Windows 7 Updates Shut Down But Restarts

Ok I had 3 "Important" Windows updates which I did "Untick" the boxes for because I needed to go some where and just Shut my PC down but instead of Shutting Down it restarted again and Windows screen came up "Updating Windows Do not Turn of your Computer" even though I did cus I was in a hurry and it was still stuck on 0%
I mean isn't there a way just Shut you PC down without having to restart it by itself just to update Windows ? Sorry If am not making sense

If there are updates that are needed to be installed then depending on the settings you selected (If it is auto), Your computer will always install updates, if you shut the computer down..

You also might want to check the time Windows will check and install updates..(You might want to pick a time that will be convenient for you)

You can change those settings by changing the Windows Update settings
Windows Update Settings - Change

Hope this Helps
