Hey Janeynflorida

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

http://www.windowsvistauserguide.com/system_restore.htm

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.

    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.

    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 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.

    Try a startup repair if you have the Vista DVD.

    If no DVD of Vista, try this:

    Download the ISO on the provided link and do a repair of the disc.

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

    At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu.

    When you have changed that, insert the Bootable disk you did in the drive and reboot.

    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.)
