Can WindowsXP Automatic Updates have an update every day ?

There is always an Update when I want to turn off my computer and I
tried to install this update every day but it appears over and over
again. Sometimes it takes very long time to turn off the computer and I
ought to do it by force.

Should I have to be worried ?
Am I infected with some new type of virus or WindowsXP have an update
every day (though I strongly doubt it) ?

Thanks!

I have a licensed WindowsXP Professional Version 2002 Service Pack 2
with Automatic Updates ON
Avast! Antivirus
KOMODO Firewall Pro

In the Add/Remove Programs list I saw many updates installed recently...
and I guess that they are genuine. Microsoft should've been very busy
lately ;)

10x anyway!

How can I tell weather updates are genuine or not ?

I'm having this "issue" for a month or so. Every day I have updates and
even sometimes my computer do not automatically shutdown. For example
yesterday I woke up at 4am and noticed that my computer was still
running. It displayed desktop and not the shutdown screen as I left it.

This lead me to the idea that there might be some problems with the
Windows Automatic Update Engine or that it could be tricked by some
malicious software (virus/trojan/backdoor/worm).

The log file is over 1MB and it's useless to post it here but what it
stroke me doing a quick look over it was the following line that
appeared over and over in the file for 6 different updates.

<Update {CLSID} is "PerUpdate" regulated and can NOT download. Sequence
8672 vs AcceptRate 0.>

What is the problem ? The AU cannot download some update or it cannot
insttall something and tries to install it over and over...
I really don't know. Any idea ? Thanks!

here is the whole AU log:

Hi there!

After I've installed my WindowsXP Service Pack 3 manually my problem has
gone. If you have a similar problem this is the solution now you know
what to do!

Enjoy SP3! :D
