Windows 7: Constant updates every night upon shutdown

Constant updates every night upon shutdown

For some strange reason, every night after a round of online gaming or surfing, upon shutdown there are 12 updates ready to install...!? It's been this way for a bout a week now and I cannot figure out what's happening. I have done a full virus scan, malware scan, and cleaned up the useless "junk" form temp files.

Does anyone have any idea as to why this is happening...?

Please follow the Windows Update Posting Instructions and post the requested data

If the file is too large (8MB compressed), remove the older CBSPersist cab files until the final file is below the limit - you can always post them separately after zipping them. (the forum doesn't allow the upload of bare CAB files, for a number of reasons)
