Last night when I shut my comp down, instead of shutting down it said something about loading updates 1-8 and THEN shut down, which took forever. Today when I started it up, it took fricking forever to start up and then displayed the mouse and the desktop background, but nothing else. Finally it loaded my desktop and toolbar. So I go to open the internet. Nothing happens. I tell it to open the internet again and it finally does so, after a longer than usual wait.

The internet itself seems to be operating fine, except that just now while typing this post it stopped typing and opened a second internet window.

WTF? What updates (seemed to be an official microsoft update of my OS that it was doing after I told it to shut down) was it talking about and why the frick is my computer so slow now?

Microsoft releases it's security patches on the second Tuesday of the month. I updated several PC's with no issues but I always review the patches before applying them. It sounds like you have them setup to automatically download and update.

And some of the patches acually get applied as the machine boots up, so it takes longer than usual to load.

Did you restart it?

This explains a lot. Thanks. If I have further problems with this, I'll let you know.
