Since you have Windows Updates set to install automatically, then you might have an update that is installing over and over. If it is small enough, you might never see the install progress screen. It might be time to follow the posting instructions for this section and let NoelDP look at the various logs.

SFC doesn't report anything.

If you check updates history, does it show that 1 or more updates failed to install?

A followed a tutorial about resetting the Windows update thing.

I dont know whats it called, but after i reset it said that i never checked for updates before.

Anyway that reset seems to have done the trick for now..
