Windows 7: Windows 7 searching for updates every time I install or hide update

Windows 7 searching for updates every time I install or hide update

I installed Windows 7 on a Vista laptop using a manufacturer disk.

After that it installed few updates, including SP1. Latest one was the update client (an older one, the kb ending in 810 I think) and searching for updates would take forever. So I installed the new client (ending in 812) and it found almost 200 updates.

Now I am starting to install these one by one, some of them I also hide.

I install one update, restart, Win7 starts searching for updates.
I hide one update, Win7 starts searching for updates.

Is this normal? Why does it start searching by itself after I install or hide an update?

Why when I hide IE11, IE10 update appears, then IE9? I just don't need IE. Going through 200 updates or so one by one...
