Windows 7 not updating datinggamebook

I left it for a bit, then went to shut the computer down in disgust.
Some of them popped up a message like "this update is not required for your computer", so I just deleted those without installing.
When I finished installing all 100 or so updates, I tried running Windows Update again.
I left it a while, then once again the little yellow windows update shield appeared on the shutdown button! I'm not arrogant enough to say that this will fix your problem.
