Default configuration of the windows updates. returning from changes. do not turn off your computer. (Infinite loop)

Problem:

  • 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!

    I have been through ALL the steps as described in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/949358. I have had no success.
    One thing that bothers me, is in the configuration of the system, I have a service called true vector Internet Monitor (Zone Alarm) and when the value disable as in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135, it is the only service still running when you perform a clean restart. I don't know if this affects the Automatic Updates/configuration or not.

    Hello

    Thanks 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 problems
    Search for missing or corrupted - files detected
    I 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.

    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 start the computer successfully after following article provided above, 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.

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

  • Windows 8.1 message 'you could not complete updates, by undoing the changes, do not turn off your computer.

    Greetings,

    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?

  • Updates configuration: phase 2 of 3-100% full. Do not turn off your computer. Don't know what to do next!

    I have a 503WM Compaq Presario with Windows Vista Home Premium, which has problems after a Windows updated today.  First of all, I have installed .NET Framework (3.5?).  Windows Update started and downloaded a few other updates, and then asked to restart my computer - on restart received the updates configuration message, but when you have to configure the updates: phase 2 of 3-100% full.  Do not turn off your computer, nothing happens--or my hard drive internal or external are doing something and Ctrl-Alt-Del does nothing.  What should I do next?

    Before that, I installed Hallmark Card Studio 2010 Deluxe and received an error message 2738.  Followed the instructions on Microsoft to add two files that had to do with the VB script.  Hallmark installation instructions downloaded then installed .NET Framework 3.5.  The update of Windows has started and installed (I think) 4 critical updates.

    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.
