Windows 7: Windows 7 has updated and installed the last 15 times I have shutdown

Not at all!
The fact that the updates are re-installing means that WU is not detecting the fact that they are already installed - which in turn means that they didn't install properly.
The question then becomes whether it's the detction mechanism which has the problem, or the install mechanism.

DO check for malware. It sounds as if you think that is an option - it's not, and should be done regularly.

Okay, don't think I'm the right guy to troubleshoot a detection mechanism...

We have a tech company on a retainer at work, should they be able to help with this?

Thanks.

If your machine is covered by the retainer, then yes

Gary, I too am having the same issue as you. The updates are showing in the update history as successfully installing each time. I've also tried installing them myself by running windows update manually. The updates are KB26233171, KB2676562 and KB2679255. Same three over and over and over, always successfully installed. Extremely annoying as it causes shutdown to last for a long time.

That's right, same as me!

I am preparing for a meeting over the next couple of days, but after that I am going to get our tech guys to have a look at the issue. They access the computer remotely, so I'll look and see what they are doing.

Maybe do another forum post in a week or so to jog my memory, and I'll let you know how I get on
