What does this message exactly means to pc connected to Internet previously and afterwards not.

“Don't turn off or unplug your computer ;it will turn off automatically

Installing update 2 of 74”


Is there any problem if I turn off my pc if the process “2 of 74” ends because some time it takes much time and it tends to happen from time to time. And which files are up dated? Systems ones or what ?is it necessary or not? If not how can i disable this message that happens when I turn off my laptop.

You can use the Windows start menu and initiate a shutdown and it will continue running, installing the updates and when finished it will shut down.

It's not good to force a shutdown when the hard drives in use. The best thing you could do is turn off windows automatic updates and manually do them when you have time or change the updates schedule to a differnet time. Like I said before you can shut it down through windows and leave. When the updates are finished it will shut off on it's own.

If a computer and or OS advices you not to do something it's usually for a good reason also a good idea to listen.

Forcing computer shut down may corrupt system files. Let it do its work. And for future turn off the automatic updates.
