Click here to read not turn off

So I put to play both false and true, restart firefox every time.

It always blocks everything. I had a similar problem with the last update as well and could not find an add-on that would help. To be honest I don't get the annoying message more but even with noscript disabled it still shows only a grey area where things should be.

This is a good example

Why can't I disable it? am I missing something? Please help me before I lose my mind. I have some homework to do.

    Hey Janeynflorida

    1st thing to try is a restoration of the system in safe mode

    Windows Vista

    Using the F8 method:

    1. Restart your computer.
    2. When the computer starts, you will see your computer hardware are listed. When you see this information begins to tap theF8 key repeatedly until you are presented with theBoot Options Advanced Windows Vista.
    3. Select the Safe Mode option with the arrow keys.
    4. Then press enter on your keyboard to start mode without failure of Vista.
    5. To start Windows, you'll be a typical logon screen. Connect to your computer and Vista goes into safe mode.
    6. Do whatever tasks you need and when you are done, reboot to return to normal mode.

  • Windows 7 - preparation set up windows. Do not turn off.

    I got this new toshiba laptop with windows 7 and it starts up and started using it. activated the 30 days free trial norton, surfing the internet and worked on some pictures for my sister. When I went to close it it says something like "installation 59 updates ' he has done fast enough, then it turned off. I went to meet my sister and when I turned on the laptop, he said 'preparation set up windows. do not turn off"he was stuck on this for hours, about 2 or 3. I thought that maybe he was stuck so I turned it off. I turned it back and he was still stuck on this same configuration screen. I turned off then turned it back and went into safe mode. I did a restore to before the updates 59 which was only a few hours earlier. I restarted the laptop and it looked pretty good. then I noticed he was saying something about the norton is maybe defective. he wouldn't let me turn on the antivirus and firewall. he wouldn't let me enter the network. I can't get on the internet basically can't do anything. It seems to work, but it is not. now, whenever I stopped it it starts to install the updates and when I start it again, it goes to the preparation set up the screen. I even left it for a day and a half on the screen configuration and nothing. What is the problem with my laptop brand new?

    Usually a single word explains what causes these problems - Norton !
    Is the laptop still under warranty? If so, Toshiba needs then provide support for problems with the operating system.

    Instead of contact Toshiba, then through the dance where they try to blame Microsoft and will not help you, if the laptop is a recent purchase so I suggest you press on press F8 key just after you press the power button.
    If you do not press F8 in time then Windows 7 will attempt to load and you will have to wait until she did try to do.
    Shut down the laptop and reboot again, by pressing F8 to only a Boot Menu appears.

    In the upper-left corner of the Start Menu should be a link to repair your computer .
    Choose this option.
    The System Recovery Options window should now appear. This is what it will look like - What are the system recovery options windows 7?
    At the bottom of this list there should be a Toshiba provided option that will allow you to do a clean/restore Windows 7 install.
    If she's not here so Toshiba should have provided you with a recovery with which disk you can boot up the laptop and then access the system recovery.

    Do a clean reinstall of Windows 7 (a format of the hard drive) and the installation of Windows 7.
    Once you have done this, and the system has rebooted for the last time, uninstall all Norton products immediately by clicking on the start ORB,
    in the field of research to install type.
    Under control panel, click on the link "view the programs that are installed on your computer.
    After you have uninstalled the Norton "tricks", restart the system.

    Update the computer laptop now, install the updates offered in groups of 10 only ! Yes it's more slow their installation at once, but... you already know the result to install all updates at once, right?

    When all updates and required reboots are finished, suggest you only install the freeMicrosoft Security Essentials or Avast.
    Both are valid antivirus programs, and both are compatible with Windows 7.

    Visa update problem

    After trying to install the updates.  my computer is now stuck in constant reboot mode while showing "Configuring updates 3 of 3 0%, do not turn off your computer.  I tried to follow the instructions provided here because it seemed to be the same problem.  But when I restart and hold down the F8 key so I can boot into safe mode, I tried selecting safe mode and I get the same results, and I tried again by selecting the option 'Disable automatic reboot' which seems to be an option on the same page with the option of safe mode.  Whatever it is, the same message comes back and I can never get to where I can see my desktop to click 'start '.  I can't get out of this cycle.  I installed the update because it said I needed to install it.


    Turn off your computer by holding the power button for about 20 seconds.
    Start your computer in safe mode: press and hold the F8 key as your computer restarts. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears
    Disable the automatic restart in the event of system failure:
    • Click Start
    • Click on Control Panel
    • Click on system and Maintenance link.
    • Click on the system link
    • In the left pane, click Advanced system settings
    • Locate the startup and recovery area, click the settings button.
    • In the startup and recovery window, uncheck the box next to automatically restart.
    • Click OK in the startup and recovery window
    • Click OK in the System Properties window
    • Close the system window
    After that... While STAYING in safe mode I do a system restore and maybe try a manual install of the update later.

    Original title: tried to update computers rose to 12%

    Hi Sandra,.

    Thanks for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    You did it any significant hardware or change software on the computer before this problem?

    I understand that you can not install some updates with the error message "failure of configuration of the Windows updates...". ». I can imagine the disadvantages suffered by you and will certainly help you in the right direction to solve the problem.

    First place, according to the error message, I suggest you to try the steps in the following article and check if it helps.

    "Configuration of the Windows updates failed. Restoration of the changes. Do not turn off your computer"error when you try to install Windows updates

    Note: When you use system restore to restore the computer to a previous state, the programs and updates that you have installed are removed.

    The question may arise if the Windows downloaded update packages are corrupt. So, if you are able to boot to the desktop with the help of the above article, I also suggest you try the following steps and check if the problem persists.

    Method 1:

    Try to run that Windows update utility provided in the following link.

    Problems with installing updates

    Try to install the updates after running the troubleshooter.

    If the problem persists, try the following method.

    Method 2:

    I suggest you to use Deployment Image Servicing and Management to fix Windows Update errors.

    (a) open an elevated command prompt. To do this, press the Windows key + Q and type in CMD right click on command prompt in the list and select run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type the password, or click allow.

    (b) type the following commands. Press enter after each command

    • DISM.exe / Online/Cleanup-image /Scanhealth
    • DISM.exe / Online/Cleanup-image /Restorehealth

  • Stuck on the screen "Please wait" or "Configuring windows. Do not turn off your computer.

    I'm under 64-bit Windows 8

    Apparently, I scanned my system with a complete analysis of the system (AVAST) and my computer left thinking that it would take several hours. When I came back, my computer automatically shut down because it was left idle for about 4 hours. I don't know if the scan is finished. When I try to start, the screen becomes screen stuck on "Please wait" or "windows setup. Do not turn off your computer.

    I already tried to go on the System Recovery Options screen, then will solve the problems, then Advanced Options, but I tried everything what it and the problem persists even when I tried to start in safe mode. I tried to go to the command prompt, and then type sfc / scannow, but he says he cannot parse now. I also tried chkdsk / R, but it said the same thing. I don't know how to run cmd as administrator from the System Recovery Options.

    So now I tried to use system restore, but I'm stuck on the logo of windows for about 1 and a half hour. I don't know if I have to wait for it or it is already blocked. In other forums I've read, they were using only the Group of drive 'C:' connected with system restore. Should I do this?

    I think to delete AVAST or turn it off somehow.

    Please help me.

    Problem solved

    I would like to share how I solved the problem. I was able to start using the windows 8 cd and in the window that asks you the language of the windows 8 needs to be installed, you can see below "computer repair".

    After clicking on it, it automatically prompts me for advanced boot parameters. First I tried the auto repair, but it says the same thing, '.. '. can't fix right now... »
    So I tried the option "pc refresh. I waited a few minutes to cool to do and after the process, it is more hung please wait screen when starting.

    Once connected, I installed programs have been removed. In the local disk files, there is a new "windows.old folder ' showing all programs that I have the old system. Re-install program is easy and the best thing is that I have my computer back.

    My deep gratitude to those who helped me. Thank you!
