    Hello there,
    I desperately need help... I don't want to have to reload Vista Home Premium and all my software and get all authenticated (which total galley is the procedure!) once again. I installed the latest Java today from Java.com and everything seems to work very well. Latyer on I started the installer of my software to sync Western Digital and after that I said which files to sync to my removable drive from the hung computer. I thought that after 1/2 hour It sinply would not go anywhere, so I used Ctrl-alt-del to cancel then restarted and Western digital software.

    Now my computer is going in circles. It goes like this:

    -screen goes black
    -Orb appears
    -"Curtain" screen comes on saying:

    -system reboots

    And it just happens again and again and again. He never at my office. I tried starting with the last start of 'good', safe

  • Configuring updates stage 3 of 3 0% complete problems

    Configuring updates stage 3 of 3 0% complete...
    apparently a lot of people have the same problems.  Are tired of looking for the forums to help you, so far without success.  I did the following steps:
    in the middle of the loop of reboot, F8 and tired safe mood ... no luck
    F8 last good known Configuration ... no luck
    Virtually all F8 sections... no luck
    I did finally have access to my office using the startup disk and did a system past recovery.  However two days after I stop my computer and when I started it again once I had the same problem again.  Again made the boot disk and I noticed the windows update icon in the lower right and he strove for 11%, and I can not any respones on that in law or by clicking on the left.  I'm sure that if I reboot this system its going back in the loop of udated.

    P.S. I have the same problem on another laptop I have

    Hi esprad,

    First of all, let us rename the Pending.xml file and check if it works very well.

    Use the system recovery options to rename the Pending.xml file and edit the registry:

    Start Windows Vista and go to system recovery options:

    Insert the Windows Vista installation disc in the disc drive, and then restart the computer.

    When you are prompted to restart from the disc, press any key.

    When you are prompted, configure the language to install, time and currency format and keyboard or options for method of entry that you want, and then click Next.

    In the page install Windows, click on repair your computer.

    In the System Recovery Options page, click the version of the Windows Vista operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next.

    In the System Recovery Options page, click command prompt.

    Type cd C:\windows\winsxs, and then press ENTER.

    Type ren pending.xml pending.old, and then press ENTER.

    Type regedit and press ENTER.

    Select HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.

    On the file menu, click on load the hive.

    Look for the following folder:

    C:\windows\system32\config\components

    When you are prompted for a name, type Offline_Components.

    In the registry editor, locate and then delete the following registry

    subkey:

    HLKM\Offline Components\AdvancedInstallersNeedResolving

    HKLM\Offline Components\PendingXmlIdentifier

    Exit the Registry Editor:

    At the command prompt, type exit to quit the registry editor.

    Press ENTER.

    Click on restart.
    WARNING:

    Alternatively, you can follow the underside of article that speaks to rename the Pending.xml file:

    Change the settings of the REGISTRY can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the REGISTRY settings configuration can be solved. Changes to these settings are at your own risk

  • OS Vista - configuring updates: stage 3 of 3-0% complete. Do not turn off your computer.

    My laptop ACER Aspire 5610 in a loop of update configuration for three days now.  Don't have a Vista installation CD as provider did the installation.  Have tried all the safe mode restarts without success.  The display is still in phase 3 of 3 endless loop.  Ideas to fix/repair or recover data from disk hard 160 GB I need to keep?

    I want to thank everyone for friendly advice and assistance information.  After a few days (of frustration for me) and your continuous encouragement, I have finally overcome this "infinite loop".

    What worked for me was downloading neosmart.net for work properly CD/DVD burner.  I tried initially using my office old CD drive, but I forgot that it was a device to read-only and wouldn't be able to burn a copy of the restore CD.  I found a DVD burner work to correctly copy download neosmart.net.

    It took several boots cold on the laptop with the recovery CD as well as access 'shift F6', then quickly by "any key" for the necessary recovery menu.

    On Google, I noticed that this "configuration updates: stage 3 of 3-0% complete." has been on Vista for 2008.  It is almost of 2012 and it always creates problems?

    America happy Thanksgiving!

  • Update fails with the message "configuration updates stage 3 of 3 0% complete. Do not turn off your computer "

    Before closing my lap top, I did 8 automatic windows updates. The next day I had turned on the lap top and other 3 automatic updates had started to download, but when configuring the update a prompt indicates "configuration updates stage 3 of 3 0% complete. Do not turn off your computer ". A few moments later, the laptop restarts and then returns to "configuration updates stage 3 of 3 0% complete. Do not turn off your computer "and restarts again, this continues each time. I'm unable to advance in the journal on stage. Can you help me?

  • Default configuration of the Windows updates. Restoration of the changes. Do not turn off your computer

    Hi, I just refreshed my laptop that I got a few drops FPS at random. Initially, it worked fine, but after a while before instaled Norton started to cause me problems. At this time I uninstalled it and when he asked me to computer restatr now, I did. Now I'm stuck with this message window loading. Restart the computer from time to time, but the message is always the same: failure of configuration of Windows updates. Restoration of the changes. Do not turn off your computer.
    Computer: hp pavilion n006sm
    Operating system: win 8 pre-installed
    At the moment I'm stuck on this window for over an hour and nothing has changed

    Seems that problem solved by itself. As I correctly uninstalled Norton, I just put my automatic updates and restarted my laptop again. He installed the updates with no problem and its working fine. Seems that Norton was really the problem, will keep you informed.
