This problem has been going on for a few weeks now - not sure when it actually started, but: When I run windows update, it processes for a while and the tells me to "Restart your computer to install important updates" - the smaller print states "Windows cant update importatant files and services while the system is using them" I restart the computer and it just retarts without appearing to update anything. I then run windows update again and it does the same - just tells me I need to restart etc. This keeps going around in a loop and I am concerned that I am not actually getting any importatnt updates. I have been searching the web for fixes and run many of them, but nothing seems to work. Please can anyone help?
