I was once told that since I had kept stopping the process, I should just let the updates run concurrently until they're all downloaded.
I tried this once, to no avail: it just hangs and slows or freezes my computer.
Do I REALLY need these; where can I download the updates IN BULK; and how do I permanently shut it off?

I would go to ADD/REMOVE and uninstall the HP updates program.
You can get updates using Microsoft updates.

I can't stand the useless apps HP and others force on consumers. I won't even get into "Code Purple" ...

I haven't yet restarted my computer.
I usually use Firefox, but I was trying to surf using IE because the particular website (Toronto Public Library) doesn't seem to accept Firefox.
Nonetheless: when I try to access the site using IE, I get the following message:
Windows - No Disk
Exception Processing Message
c00000013 Parameters 75b6bf9c 475b6bf9C
Have I screwed up my computer or do I just have to wait for a restart.
I'm concerned I may screw things up even further with a restart.

But uninstalling updates program should have no bearing on windows.
Did you have your other programs closed before you attempted the uninstall?
Did the program uninstaller say, "Reboot to finish the uninstall"?
If so one should reboot before continuing busness as usual, and starting other programs such as IE.
A reboot may very well correct the sitaution where as opening more and more programs in an attempt to discover if there is a problem, may compound it.
Try rebooting to safe mode, if the system loads, you'll have a better chance of discovering if a problem exist, troubleshooting, and correcting it from there.
