Followed every thing till control panel, but there doesnt show any update to remove... Although i saw that its asking to add 3 more updates marked important, dunno if i should instal them though.

Can you turn off hibernation in power settings, then then reboot then turn on again.

Google powercfg -h off (you type this in command prompt with admin priv)

This will turnoff hibernation and delete the reserved disk space it uses. If you don't use hibernation then leave off.

I dont know what exactly worked, but after i checked fruitbat sugestion off unsinstalling the updates(even though there were none for me to) powercfg somehow hasnt shown up for a day in half so i hope its fixed. Thank You for your sugestions, hopefully my laptop wont get another problem soon, but if so ill ask here again :)
