Update fails with the message "configuration updates stage 3 of 3 0% complete. Do not turn off your computer "

Before closing my lap top, I did 8 automatic windows updates. The next day I had turned on the lap top and other 3 automatic updates had started to download, but when configuring the update a prompt indicates "configuration updates stage 3 of 3 0% complete. Do not turn off your computer ". A few moments later, the laptop restarts and then returns to "configuration updates stage 3 of 3 0% complete. Do not turn off your computer "and restarts again, this continues each time. I'm unable to advance in the journal on stage. Can you help me?

Best regards Mrs Neil Dowdeswell

    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.

    "Configuration of the Windows updates failed. Restoration of the changes. Do not turn off your computer"error when you try to install Windows updates

    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 boot to the desktop with the help of the above article, I also suggest you try the following steps and check if the problem persists.

    Method 1:

    Try to run that Windows update utility provided in the following link.

    Problems with installing updates

    Try to install the updates after running the troubleshooter.

    Method 2:

    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.

    2. click on start > right click on computer > properties > Windows updates down the lower left corner > updates installed in the lower left corner in the next window

    > then click the one that you don't want > uninstall will appear at the top > uninstall it.

    When you take a look at pending updates, you can either download/install them one at the time, namely the update causing you problems.

    > or if you do not need an individual > right-click on > UAC prompt > hide it

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    If you have problems to restart, read on:

    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.

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:

  • "failed to set up the windows updates. returning from changes. do not turn off your computer.

    Hello

    I get this error "failed to configure windows updates. returning from changes. do not turn off your computer. The computer is a Samsung Ativ tab 5 and I got it for a little over a week.
    I have updated with the SW update
    The results of the troubleshooting online are:
    Problems encountered:
    Recent updates - not fixed installation problems
    Search for missing or corrupted - files detected
    Some security settings are missing or have been modified - fixed
    Registration for the service is missing or corrupt - fixed
    Windows Update error 0 x 80070490 (2014-02-10-t-11_25_11A) - fixed

    I have been through ALL the steps as described in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/949358. I have had no success.
    One thing that bothers me, is in the configuration of the system, I have a service called true vector Internet Monitor (Zone Alarm) and when the value disable as in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135, it is the only service still running when you perform a clean restart. I don't know if this affects the Automatic Updates/configuration or not.

    Hello

    Thanks 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 problems
    Search for missing or corrupted - files detected
    I 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.

  • Default configuration of the Windows updates. Restoration of the changes. Do not turn off your computer

    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.
