    Whenever I try to get updates I get the following message:

    "Restart you computer to install important updates" and "Windows
    can't update important files and services while the system is
    using them. Save any open files and restart the computer, and
    then try to check for new updates."

    This is constant, never ends.

    It may be related to the fact that I once clicked on getting
    Windows 10 (download later) and realized that was a bad mistake,
    because after that MS didn't give me any real choice: either do it
    now, or do it in the next 72 hours! I tried to follow some advice
    on various forums to get rid of this, but none of my attempts were successful.

    I do NOT want Windows 10 right now, nor in the next 72 hours.

    I apparently can no longer get updates, including security
    updates, not absolutely sure. The one thing that is certain is
    that I am getting this nag screen from "Windows Update" about
    restarting my computer, which I have done a hundred times in
    the past couple of days.

    I need some help.

    Thanks in advance.
