WGA - does this cause constant installation of "updates"? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Ever since I downloaded Windows Genuine Advantage, every single time I shut down the computer, it says that updates need to be installed.  EVERY SINGLE TIME.  This is ridiculous.  And I don't know what is being installed - how do I know that this is for real or is supposed to be what is happening?  Could there possibly be this many updates, or is something just not installing correctly so this keeps popping up?  There are not always the same number of updates to be installed, so I don't think it could be the same thing all the time.  I don't even know where to start looking for an answer, and I am NOT a computer techie (I'm a "normal" person - use computer for email, searching the web, making documents, etc.), so need very elementary, step-by-step instruction if the solution involves going here or there, running this or that program (I won't have any idea what you're talking about if you just say to run the program but don't tell me HOW to do that!), etc.  I very much appreciate anyone who can take the time to answer this question.  Thanks. 

    By the way, I have Windows XP (and I think I installed SP 3).  Don't know if you need any other info.  Also, I use Mozilla Firefox as my default web browser, bc. it is SO much better than Internet Explorer as far as not allowing adware/spyware.  When running Spyware Terminator after using IE, there are hundreds of things on there that need to be removed.  After using Firefox, NONE.
