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).

Thank you!

    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.

    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.

    It says this - "Note if this problem occurs, it may take 30 minutes to undo changes, and then the system will display the login screen Windows.»

    But this is not true for me, I have nowhere near the logon screen. Earlier the PC rebooted, but is IMMEDIATELY returned to the exact same failure screen. There is a line.

    A few notes:

    (1) it is a G46VW mobile computer ASUS 'Republic of gamers ". I had 3 days. There is no DVD drive so I can't use any kind of boot disk.

    (2) I have no attached removable media.

    (3) I don't know how to get to any screen except that this form of failure, so do not know how to enter in a single command.

    (4) all that happens is that I see the ASUS logo, then this screen failure immediately.

    I'm panicking, it's all new. It has worked very well. I started it today, it has been updated slowly. I saw him at about 17%. Then I looked at a few hours later and saw that he was stuck in this process.

    After restart my Asus X55oE due to necessary updates, I got «default configure features windows.» Restoration of the changes. Do not turn off your computer. After reading several messages through other forums, I turned it and then turn again only to receive the same screen. Some of these forums say that it can take 2 hours or more because of so many updates made at the same time. I think I was trying to upgrade windows 8 for windows 8.1.

    I'm really worried about it just because I just got back this PC from ASUS and am needing to work. Can someone tell me if there are other options or make sure that it just take a while? I also read that you can actually go to the control panel > windows update > help to erase mistakes. Also, someone said that you can customize the number of updates at a time can be both. I certainly do not happen again. Help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
