Re: windows update

Had you done Windows Update Cleanup in Disk Cleanup? Last time I did that recently, to free up over 1GB of disk space on a Windows 7 computer (with a small SSD), a handful of different updates which were already installed re-appeared in Windows Update, which it had to download and install again.
Even if Windows Update Cleanup doesn't break detection of already installed updates, it will show "configuring updates..." on the next boot.
