Windows 7 Update Failure Issues
Windows will automatically inform the user to shutdown the PC and restart once the windows update is being installed. If the updates are not done, then there is a warning message next to the ‘Shut down’ indicating the failure of the recent updates. Sometimes the update happens silently when you have shut down the PC or even rebooted it. The Service Pack 1 must be installed in Windows 7 devices to continue receiving updates and security fixes. You can either fix the issue yourself or contact Windows 7 support to regulate the problem for you.
