I must apologize for taking so long to get back to you folks that offered possible solutions. Please forgive me!


I took a chance and shutdown the computer a second time. For some reason, there was no indication of "Wait while update is being installed......etc." It just shutdown normally, and I haven't had any startup nor shutdown problems since.


I checked the Update History and it shows that all updates have been installed successfully. There are only 2 Optional Updates pending:


2019-01 Preview of Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB4480955)

Download size: 240.1 MB

You may need to restart your computer for this update to take effect.

Update type: Optional

Install this update to resolve issues in Windows. For a complete listing of the issues that are included in this update, see the associated Microsoft Knowledge Base article for more information. After you install this item, you may have to restart your computer.

At this point, it seems to be running fine and I am inclined to "Let well enough alone," unless you folks can recommend otherwise?


Thanks again for the helpful suggestions!

Yes, I can recommend you do several things.

First check for file corruptions that might have occurred during abnormal shutdowns. Use CHKDSK C: /f and SFC /SCANNOW to perform the integrity checks.

Secondly, create a manual restore point. This will mark the point in time you considered your OS to be stable. If something happens again, while updating, then you have a restore point where the OS is stable.

Will do,
