computer is working slow and wants to do windows updates all the time
My computer has been operating slowly most of the time and almost daily windows wants to do about 5 updates. After I take the time to do the updates, restart the computer and finally get on again it sometimes works faster. I have done msconfig to remove
everything but avast from my startup, I have done defragmenting and I have done virus scans. I don't know what else to do so I would love some advice on what may be going on with my computer.

Do you need those updates? Have they already installed or do you not have the programs they are for
(Windows Updates does occasionally suggest ones that are not needed). If so then go to Control Panel -
Windows Updates - right click on and HIDE.
Try this - Control Panel - Windows Updates - on each Update that will not install - Click the Important Updates
or the Update itself - double click one then click View More Informations (or click on it then View on right side)
Those will take you to a page where you can download the update.
Or go here and put in the KBxxxxxx number to download it.
hi thanks for your answer. 5 updates installed yesterday and seemed to complete themselves, now my computer is working well. I don't know for how long it will be fast though as it seems to do this and then slow down again. Should I be ignoring certain
updates when my computer slows down until I install them? How do I know what I don't need? Could there be something wrong with my computer that windows keeps recommending updates?
