Recently my pc as yellow shielsd in the bottom right hand corner. When you run the cursor over it, it says downloading updates.?

The problem is is seems to slow down the pc and its only at 13% and seems to be stuck there. 3 hours and no movement.

Any ideas anybody

Go to Start - Programs - Windows Update, then select Custom and choose/install the updates one at a time.

Thats wierd? Went into the Windows updates.
Windows check the system, said there where 10. clicked on install and they downloaded in no time.
It seems to be when Windows automatically logs on the the download.. it take ages?

Eitherway its sorted now, Thanks

It's advising you that updates are available.

You probably have Windows Update in Security Center enabled for something on the lines of "Notify Me of Updates but let me choose which to download," which is achieved by selecting Customise as ArrGee points out.
