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.
I installed updates in my Windows 8.1 partition. Then he asked me to restart the computer, and the message "we could not finish updates, exchange loss, do not turn off your computer" appeared and was on-screen for hours. I thought to reinstall bootcamp but I have software in the Windows partition that cannot be recovered. I read that one of them starts Windows in 'Safe' Mode, but this is not possible. I use a MacBook Pro (retina, 13 inches, early 2015) OS X 10.10.5
How can I fix this without wiping the Windows partition and lose my software?
Have you created a Windows system restore point before the upgrade?
- Computer: Lenovo N580
- Windows 8
- Reset my computer to factory reset
- All my files uploaded to the computer
- Launched about 120 windows updates
- Now, the computer is stuck on the blue screen with the message that seems to never go "failed windows update Setup. returning from changes. do not turn off your computer"I can't access the login screen or any screen to disable the windows update.
- I tried the solutions posted by other users with the same problem but without success.
- Please help me with a solution where I don't have a factory reset because I don't have another copy of all my files!
- Also, is there a way to access a safe mode on Windows 8? I tried F8 or SHIFT + F8 after starting, but nothing happens. I read a post online where Windows 8 have removed this feature. Is there another way?
- Help, please! I AM ETERNALLY GRATEFUL!
- THANKS IN ADVANCE!

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 appearsDisable the automatic restart in the event of system failure:
After that... While STAYING in safe mode I do a system restore and maybe try a manual install of the update later.For the sake of space I refer you to the article about how to proceed.System restore

HelloThanks for trying to help. Now my computer seems to be up-to-date.I followed your steps but MicrosoftFixit50202.msi did not like "my OS is incompatible. I use windows 8. I couldn't run this in default or aggressive.I did go in Control Panel and disable antivirus and firewall Zone Alarm and reset Windows defender by default.I did IE default web browser I have prob changed when I got to the computer.I then returned to set up a clean boot and this time I managed to disable the true vector Internet Monitor (Zone Alarm) to run.I ran the reset troubleshooting of Windows with the same result as before is to say:Recent updates - not fixed installation problemsSearch for missing or corrupted - files detectedI think I have restarted my computer at this stage and then tried to update again.It has not yet, but with the error, I got an error code and a link to help. I don't have not noticed this before. I followed the help and ran about 5 command prompts that have to do with the renaming of files I think.Then I tried updating again and this time 38 45 updates succeeded. I then ran the update again and it seemed to work on the other 7 updates.Although Windows Update said I was now updated, I was skeptical as when this whole thing started is started when I got the "windows installs updates" and then "failed to configure updates. Returning... etc"then I restarted my computer. At the start, there was no message on try to configure the updates, then, how do I know they are configured and working as it should?Thank you.
My computer says updated configuration failure, recovery changes, do not turn off your computer... I left over three days, and he said that. Does anyone know how to get that back in Windows so I can use my computer. It is a laptop Windows 8.

Respected by all,
Could someone help me please with the problem. I can't access the windows at all. It has blue screen that says "FAILURE TO CONFIGURE updates SYSYTEM RESTORE CHANGES updated DO NOT turn OFF YOUR COMPUTER" pls help
You may need to stay on this screen for not more than one hour, if there are serious problems with Windows Update.
If you can always access your PC after waiting, turn off your PC. Then turn it on, immediately pressing F8 constantly. Once you get a black screen with options, select Safe Mode with the arrow keys and press enter on your keyboard.
Once Windows finishes loading of files, you can start in safe mode, where you should be able to log on normally. You will notice that the screen resolution has changed, and when you log in, you will see a black desktop computer. This lets you know that you are using safe mode. Once you log on, restart normally.
