Default configuration Windows update restore changes do not turn off your computer.
I'm running 64-bit Windows 8
Guard saying default configuration of folds by using Windows Update
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.
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.
Try to run that Windows update utility provided in the following link.
Try to install the updates after running the troubleshooter.
If the problem persists, try the following method.
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
(c) close the command prompt, and then run Windows Update again.
Check if the problem persists.
Hope this information is useful. Let us know if you need more help, we will be happy to help you.
Takes 5 minutes - start Message: Configuring Windows Update 0% complete do not turn off your computer. Windows 7 Professional 64-bit system, works fine, but I get this stupid message whenever I start.
How can I get rid of this stupid message and have a normal boot. This took place yesterday, and it's a real pain. How can I get rid of this.
I had this problem 2 days in a row. Windows 7 Edition Home Premium. "Automatic updates" not ended and I got the same message on restart and had to wait for it to timeout.
I tried "manually" update, and that fixed the problem.
Go to the control panel. Click on system and security. Click on Windows Update and follow the instructions. I selected the updates recommended, installed and rebooted. Problem solved.
(I have no idea why this problem occurred. In the "Windows Update", I opened the "update history" and saw the 'Impossible' updates, but I don't dig deeper than that.)
Kindly help me because I'm having this problem default configuration of the windows updates reverting changes do not turn off your computer. It may take a long time before he return to normal. I use windows 8. Assistance is very welcome.
Please run the Windows Update Troubleshooter:
Download it from this link.
Please provide details of any problem it reports as not fixed.
Hi, I restored my Toshiba laptop yesterday afternoon, this morning, when I turned it on it started to configure the updates and let him be like that so I made breakfast.
When I came back, I found this saying ' failure set features Windows restore changes do not turn off your computer ' its been like that for about 10 hours.
I wonder how can I fix? I tried it turn on and turn off, but the same problem persists.
It came with 8 Windows preinstalled thereforeI don't have the installation disk and I don't have access to the desktop
Any solution please?
I'll get you the link and restore your computer to a previous working state.
Please reply with the status.
- 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 don't know if this affects the Automatic Updates/configuration or not.
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.

Let us know if it is not resolved
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?
I, too have this problem, however, it's on my new Lenovo Thinkpad 2 and the endless loop is going for 4 1/2 hours. I'm crazy! I only had it for 4 days. Can someone please help?
Welcome to the Microsoft community.
I understand that you are unable to install the Windows updates and receive an error message.
This must be due to the corrupted Windows Components update or conflict between third-party applications or external devices.
I suggest you perform the steps below in the Microsoft Help article:
"Configuration of the Windows updates failed. Restoration of the changes. Do not turn off your computer"error when you try to install Windows updates
1. When you perform the system restore to restore the computer to a previous state, programs and updates that you have installed are removed.
2. Please do not perform upgrade in-place or reinstalling Windows.
3. after the boot minimum troubleshooting step, read the sections "How to reset the computer to start normally after a clean boot troubleshooting" in the link provided to return the computer to a Normal startup mode.
Hope that it can solve the problem. If the problem persists, please answer us, we will be happy to help you.
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.
This computer is my friend. I don't know what she does for her. I fixed it before, but it worked one for hours and the same message is still there.

Update error configuration Windows Updates... Do not turn off your computer. This is immediately followed by the default configuration of the Windows updates. Restoration of the changes. Do not turn off your computer.
OT: Windows Update failure 8.
I recently re-installed Windows 8 using an old product key once I updated my PC using Windows 7 due to failure to boot Windows Technical Preview. The installation went smoothly, but when installation is finished, he told me that I had installed updates, for the most updated security. I installed them and restarting my PC, he has said configuration Windows Updates... Do not turn off your computer. It is immediately followed by updates default Windows configuration . Restoration of the changes. Do not turn off your computer. It accomplishes this task for like 10-15 minutes and then finally starts. Once my PC starts, this cycle starts again. So far, happened 4 times.
Could someone please fix this? I want to update to Windows 8.1, but could end up, I'm stuck with Windows 8. (Also, why download from the store disappeared? "I'm not using a RT system).
Why I can't update in the store?
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.
