"install updates and shut down" won't go away
Last week (4/9, six days before this post), I had some XP updates that
Windows was trying to push on me. When I restarted my computer as I
always do at days' end, the shutdown menu from the start menu gave me
a choice - "install updates and shut down" - that I don't usually see.
I picked that.

These five updates:

- Security Update for ActiveX Killbits for Windows XP (KB948881)
- Windows XP Security Update for Windows XP (KB941693)
- Windows XP Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 7 for
Windows XP (KB947864)
- Windows XP Security Update for Windows XP (KB948590)
- Windows XP Security Update for Windows XP (KB945553)

installed successfully.

The problem, minor as it may be, is that now whenever I go to the
shutdown menu, that option is there and is the default choice.
Normally, it defaults to whatever I last picked, which, 99% of the
time, is "restart my computer."

This isn't a huge issue, but I'd like to know how to remove that
option from the shutdown menu, at least until the next time I shut
down without installing updates, and I'd like to know how to make the
shutdown menu revert to defaulting to my last option (usually
restart).

Re: "install updates and shut down" won't go away
Look in the windowsupdate.log and figure out what is going on.
Obviously at least one of the updates didn't completely install.

You only get that Install updates & Shutdown option
when there are updates still to install.
