If you wish to complain - Support for Windows Update:
You can call, email or do whatever you like.
Your choices -
1. Stare at the monitor
2. Contact MS and complain, or
3. Shutdown without installing updates and wait until all updates are
available then install.
4. Manually scan and download and install.
:: Well, that was a useless solution. I have the same problem - unless

:: downloads ready for installation -- nothing!
:: What did MS do to a procedure that worked, flawlessly, for literally

:: Don't break a sweat solving problems for us, MS. Ever wonder why

:: And years of experience dealing with my tech people at work have

:: don't download" accomplishes the same thing...
:: Let's hear a "real" solution to this problem.
