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.)
