    Hi,

    While working away on my computer running Windows Vista everything starts to shut down and it says window is updating your computer. This happens all the time regardless of what area I'm working in. Has anyone else had this problem? I really appreciate any help that can be given;

    Thank you

    This happens if you have Windows Update set to automatically update your machine -- which is (IMHO) a very bad idea. Check your Windows Update options and change them to only notify you of the updates, or at most, to download them. That way, YOU can decide when you want to apply the updates.
