Dell Inspiron 3800 Win XP SP3 10GB HD Most likely due to full HD (less than 3 MB free space). Updates ready to install shield showing in notification area. When trying to close down screen shows message "do not turn off computer" etc and "Installing updates" etc. These two messages keep showing ad infinitum and closure never happens. I have to turn off power at wall. Question: how do I get rid of these updates ready to install represented by the update shield. I do not care if earlier updates are deleted to make more free space. Could this be the solution? I have turned off Automatic Updates. Help appreciated.
