If you can see this clearly then you can see that I have a problem!?

Restarting the computer (As it claims is needed) accomplishes absolutely nothing!
I learned my lesson after the 8th or 9th 'restart!'

Should I delete all of these 'updates' and start anew?
(Will that help?)

Thanks

I don't have Adobe Flash player installed, I've read that it has too many security issues - it appears that everything you are trying to update is related........... (There is 1 drug store chain that I can't view the sale flyer for this reason but no biggie - they just don't get my business

I just ran the windows update assistant.
My understanding is that if you have the latest update the tool will say "Thank You" and show no other updates?

Does that only mean that the update has been successfully downloaded but not necessarily installed?

I ask because as you can see in my screenshot below that I got the "Thank You" from the assistant but my update page still shows the "awaiting restart" to install update!?

I am totally confused??

I've been having update problems for years on some computers. Microsoft still doesn't seem to have a handle on the problems or offer much assistance. Internet searches have been more successful for me, and usually involve resetting update components, which includes stopping services, deleting folders and such.
