How often do you restart?

What settings do you have for Microsoft updates?

You probably have an update that is repeatedly failing to install.  Open Windows Update from Control Panel > System and Security > Windows Update and click 'View update history'.  Identify the updates that are failing and list them here (or take a screenshot if you prefer).

You may also wish to download and run the Windows 7 Update Readiness Tool (MS KB 947821)

bobox00--With the answers to those questions we should be able to help.  If you start up only infrequently that behavior may be quite normal.  There have been a few updates last week, and they would need to configure Windows on startup.
