update configuration

Without warning, my phone closes all applications and a message "Configuring updates step 2 of 3 do not turn off your computer" the computer then stops and restarts automatically. A second message appears "Configuring updates step 3 of 3'. How can I prevent this from happening. This does not happen on my PC desktop


Change your settings for update for one that suits you:


Understanding Windows Update and Extras in Windows Vista

Download updates but let me choose whether to install them - if you select this option, Vista will download the updates on your computer, but not install them automatically. If you want to install updates, then you must install them manually. You should only select this option if you have a reason to not install updates automatically. Only advanced users should use this option.

Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them - if you select this option, you'll be alerted when there are new updates available for download and install. You can then choose to download and install the updates that you want. This option should really be reserved for people who know exactly which updates they need, or those who have little access to the Internet.


If you ever have problems with this "configuration 3/3":

Restore point:

Try typing F8 at startup and in the list of Boot selections, select Mode safe using ARROW top to go there > and then press ENTER.

Try a restore of the system once, to choose a Restore Point prior to your problem...

Click Start > programs > Accessories > system tools > system restore > choose another time > next > etc.



If restore work not and you do not have a Vista DVD from Microsoft, do a repair disc to do a Startup Repair:

Download the ISO on the link provided and make a record of repair time it starts.

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.


Link above shows what the process looks like and a manual, it load the repair options.

NeoSmart containing the content of the Windows Vista DVD 'Recovery Centre', as we refer to him. It cannot be used to install or reinstall Windows Vista, and is just a Windows PE interface to recovering your PC. Technically, we could re-create this installation with downloadable media media freely from Microsoft (namely the Microsoft WAIK, several gigabyte download); but it is pretty darn decent of Microsoft to present Windows users who might not be able to create such a thing on their own.

Read all the info on the website on how to create and use it.


ISO Burner: http://www.snapfiles.com/get/active-isoburner.html

It's a very good Vista startup repair disk.

You can do a system restart tool, system, etc it restore.

It is NOT a disc of resettlement.

And the 32-bit is what normally comes on a computer, unless 64-bit.

See you soon.

    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?

    To perform an offline system restore, you must specify which Windows installation you want to restore. For example, if the installation is in "C:\Windows:" should be restored, enter the following command: rstrui.exe/OFFLINE:C\Windows

    I typed in the "run" command, and it didn't work either. VIsta came installed on the computer, so I don't have a disc to insert and reboot with. Help, please!

  • How to fix Windows update configured to never install drivers

    None of my USB sticks work, says no driver installed.  Troubleshooting report says "windows update configured in a way to never install drivers". How can I fix?

    Hi Phil,

    Thank you for your update on the issue.

    1. Have you tried to connect your USB stick with all the USB ports on your system?
    2. You are able to install all Windows updates.

    As you have tried to choose the option always to install the best driver from Windows Update software already, I suggest once, click the radio button for Yes, this automatically (recommended), save changes and check if the problem persists.

    Also, I suggest you try to remove and reinstall all USB controllers and check with the question.

    1. Open Manager devices by clicking the Start button, click Control Panel, click system and security, and then, under System, clicking Device Manager. If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
    2. In the list of the categories of equipment, locate and expand Bus USB controllers.
    3. Right-click every device under the Bus USB controllers node and then click Uninstall to remove them one at a time.
    4. Restart the computer and let the USB controllers get reinstalled.
    5. Plug in the removable USB device and test to make sure that the problem is solved.

  • How do I update/configure direction/address IP

    This is the first time I try to get help from this forum. I hope that I will be answered as soon as possible, because it is really urgent for me!
    I have been using the LAN wireless for quite awhile, but now, suddenly, it is not possible tomake the connection more, because the direction/IP (I don't know which is the correct name in English!) isn't well configured or not updated. (My laptop is purchased from Spain and I use it in Finland now; if it has to do something about the problem whit...)
    So, at the beginning, when I arrived for the first time in Finland, the WIFI connection wasn't possible (neighter a normal cable). A guy has changed something on the IP address, and then it worked, no problem. But now, is once more the same. This time, I have the cable connection but no WIFI.
    What should I do? Please help me! It is very important!
    :) Thank you!!!

    Hi, looks like you're talking about IP lease renewal?
    Usually this is done automatically by the operating system, but which may depend on if your wireless network card is configured for an IP fixed or control DHCP.
    Open a new console window by start, run cmd.exe
    now, type: ipconfig/all
    This will show you the status of your network.
    now, type: ipconfig / renew all
    This should renew the IP lease and hopefully fix your connection problems if you have any error message please let me know.
    I would also recommend to re-scan the network with the Connection Wizard make sure that the name of the network (SSID) + WEP keys have not been altered and your Mac address is allowed to connect to the router.

  • Updates configuration problem

    I get automatic updates.  After the last update, when I start the computer, he's trying for a long time set up updates and fails.  It takes a lot of time and, apparently, the updates are not configured.  What can I do?  Moreover, the message indicating that the update has failed is on for a time very short, I can't read it all.


    I suggest you to follow these steps and check if that helps:

    Method 1:
    Go to installed updates and verify the update is installed and if it is installed successfully:

    Method 2:

    If the update failed, then try to download the update from the below link and then try to install and check if it helps:

  • Windows 7 - configuration constantly at startup 'do not turn off your computer, updates configuration"

    This is a computer that is less than four months old.  It works very well - install updates and shut down.  Now I get the same message, but it seems closed - the morning I get the message yet configuration and never completes the process.  What is the problem.  I called the store where I bought the computer and they tried to tell me to Geek Squad, it's something I have to pay for.  I got a service contract, but he says it's to my hard drive, or anyone, that it is not covered.  Is there a fix I can do myself.  From what I've read it's not like this is an unusual problem.  Is this correct?


    Although you will see a message at the top of the page that article applies to 'use a different edition of Windows than the one you', he applies to Windows 7, then download andSave the Fixit, please -How to reset the Windows Update components?

    Then, read How to configure Windows 7 to the clean boot.

  • Updates configuration error

    Installed upgrading Windows 7 from Vista and things cost very well the first day. The second day when I had enough, there were 20 updates important and 4 not if important, so I let it update and went. I forgot and came back the next day and the screensaver didn't work so I moved the mouse and set up the office and Windows Explorer was in a State of continuous failure / restart. I reboot and it tries to configure all of the updates and starts then a loop continues to failure to configure, and then restart. Pop in my installation disk and I use system restore to revert to the State I was in before the 24 updates. When done using the system, it was of course 24 updates, he wanted to install again, so I clicked on the install/off button and let it do it's thing. Returned the next night and turned on the computer and went into a loop again where it would fail on configure then try again and then finally to restart and it all over again. If this continues, I'll have to back up files that I want to keep and do a fresh install. Anyone knows what is the cause?

    I tried to install updates in smaller batches until I read your post and it did take! However, after a day that began to Windows Explorer, it is small market to stop and restart. At this point, I decided just to copy the files and what I needed on DVD and do a clean install of Windows 7. So far the only thing that I miss is the calendar which has been included in the work, as I did my training courses there. I didn't have a lot of programs installed on Vista, and I had to reinstall that a certain number of times. I got my antivirus disabled during the installation of 7, but I still wonder if she was causing a conflict after 7 has been installed. In any case, I appreciate your trying to help, but I think that the new installation is probably the best option. Take care!
