Update window stuck 10

Can anyone help W10 update stuck on 99% over 6 hours?

Close the wizard, restart your computer, disable your security software (Antivirus/Firewall), then restart the installation to see if it progresses. If this does not work, try to upgrade manually.

    Windows Vista and 7 update Reboot Loop Fix

    Symptom: You have a update that is causing Windows Vista or Windows 7, stuck in an infinite loop. The problem usually manifests as a "step 3 of 3:0 % complete...". "followed by a restart which starts at the exact same message, not allowing you to get on your account of connection or a desktop at all. It's a pain, and he doesn't stop, even in Mode without failure or advanced trying last good known Configuration in the start menu.

    \Windows\WinSxS\cleanup.XML AND (as applicable)

    \Windows\WinSxS\pending.XML and the infinite loop update will be set.

    There are two ways to get the files, you need to delete. The easiest is to start your installation of Windows and the button 'Install now' DVD, click on the link located at the bottom left that says 'Repair your computer' open a command prompt and type:

    del C:\Windows\WinSxS\cleanup.xml

    del C:\Windows\WinSxS\pending.xml

    The other way is to download a live Linux distribution such as the System of Tritech Service (which, unlike Vista or 7 DVD, can be booted from a USB flash drive for computers with no CD/DVD drive such as netbooks), open a command prompt, mount the file system and deleting the files. Assuming that your Windows installation is the first partition on the first hard disk, the following commands in rxvt or a console in the Tritech Service system should work:

    Anyway you do it, this solution will stop the engine update loop reboot and let you return to your computer. You may need to make some corrections, additional or manual updates if you have problems, but unless your login screen and/or the Office should be accessible! Is a very annoying problem and I noticed that Google is looking for things like "stage of vista 3 3 restart" usually only provides information about how to run the system on a Vista DVD restore. Unfortunately, if there is a problem with an update, sometimes the system restore does not work and fail with obscure errors, so this info is vital.

    Maybe it's your last chance to avoid giving to the top and reinstalling Windows, and we always like avoiding relocations!

  • Update Windows, stuck at step 3 of 3, does not start


    Reading the forums, so it seems I'm not the only one who had this problem, but none of the data seems to work for me.

    My computer is running slow this morning (as sometimes when he treats a large update), so I restarted.  But now, whenever the system tries to start, it gets insofar as the message 'configuration updated step 3 of 3, 0% ' before it restarts in total.

    I am running Windows Vista Home Premium - I think that it is 32-bit, but I'm not positive.  I have a laptop HP Pavilion DV6345us.

    I tried all suggested fixes, I found.  I tried to launch the Mode without failure (all versions of it), but every time it's the same thing.  I've never had to simplified office, I think I'm supposed to see.  I tried the system restore, but none of the dozen or so restoration work points.  After each attempt to restore the system, I get this error message: data error (Cyclic Redundancy Check) (0 x 80070017).

    My last update was added on 06/05/10 at 09:16:38.  My last update before that was 05/03/10 at 14:31:18.  My time zone is set to GMT - 8:00 (or Pacific time).  Between the Windows updates, I downloaded an update for Java (Java 6 update 20) 04/05/10.

    I have also run the memory diagnostic tool, but that has not changed anything.

    I do not have any third-party malware or anti-virus software.

    This is all the relevant information, I think I can give.  Any comments would be greatly appreciated, because I use my computer for work and need again as soon as POSSIBLE.

    Thank you!

    Personal data backup (which none should be considered 100% reliable at this point) then format the HARD disk and do a clean install of Windows.  Please note that a repair installation (upgrade AKA on-site) will NOT fix it!

  • Update Windows stuck at 0%, now, windows is no longer enabled. Legal copy. Help!

    I have a laptop I bought in 2008 with Windows Vista 64 installed. The product key is valid (and I can prove it if necessary). Laptop has been with SP1 or no service pack. I updated to Service Pack 2, when it came out. Then because I was annoyed with windows constantly wanting to install updates, I temporarily turned off their. 

    Fast forward a few months and I decide to brand new update. I chose to install approximately 60 of the 80 updates (I don't have Office updates because that my laptop has only a trial edition that I do not). After the updates are selected and I click to download, the download indicator remains at 0% forever. It seems that no update is downloaded, so I cancel the update.

    To solve this I finally see suggestions for a Microsoft program with no descriptive name 'Fix it '. The link is here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971058

    I run this program and reboot. It turns out that the downloaded "0%" message for the updates really indicate 45 updates were downloaded enough for windows to try to install during this restart. Computer hangs for more than an hour at 25% of the finished 1. Hard reboot and windows tries to part 2. Windows complete parts 2 and 3, restarts automatically and goes then 2 1/2 hours break updates and reboot.

    This process ends, I connect to windows and have an error message saying that windows is activated now more. Enter the product key on the bottom of my computer does not work.

    What now?

  • Automatic updates is stuck, includes most of it resources, is not download the updates (windows xp) & how to use FixIt

    Automatic updates is stuck and includes most of the computing resources, does not download updates (windows xp).

    After restarting a couple of times and the computer almost melt it finally resolved itself but would like to know how to solve/speed "constipation" where it would happen again.

    Have automatic updates set in place to be notified, but not to download or install before you have manually committed.  Launched the download but then icon taskbar disappeared and cannot cancel downloads when the computer started to overheat.  Restarted.

    East went to the Microsoft Update Web site, but got stock without ever generating the list of updates.  Restarted.

    Went to link to FixIt for this type of problem and it just downloaded WindowsUpdateDiagnostic.diagcab and indicated that nothing was available to open this type of file.  Should a FixIt application be installed first?  He is yet to provide suggestions on how to proceed.

    Aversion to disable the automatic updates if would like more information on how to have a greater mastery of the process that it hogs computer and interfere with the realization of planned work.

    Kind regards.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I agree that it is not dust on the fan - read my response above.

    As I said above, I have concluded that the solution to the problem of automatic updates are unruly must all just use to be notified when updates are available, but then go on the site of Microsoft Updates and make the download / installation of the updates from there.  Doing it this way is much less likely to cause problems and offer better control of the user.  Once Microsoft Updates ends the taskbar icon disappears until the next time updates are available.

    I've seen several threads on these, but they do not seem to help.

    I have Vaio laptop with Vista operating system threads. It used to work well until last year.  However, lately when I try to start the computer, it did update Windows and gets stuck on update 3.
