Windows Update stalls in stage 2 of 3, 54% complete and then go back

Original title: why are my updates not finishing on reboot?

I can't complete installation of important updates for my computer. I have Windows Vista. I tried to install the security update Cumulative January for IE8 (KB2482017) and update of security for Vista (KB2483185). When it ends with the installation it is said that he managed and restart my computer. During the reboot is when I have the problem. It starts up and updates are being installed, says 0% complete step 2 of 3 0% Complete - 54% complete then it starts to say that it's the return of the changes and updates has not installed correctly. I tried several times to Windows Update and also the Microsoft Download Center and still the same put on restart every time. Is it possible to fix this and get my updates? Any ideas?

    http://www.windowsvistauserguide.com/system_restore.htm

    Using the F8 method:

    1. Restart your computer.
    2. When the computer starts, you will see your computer hardware are listed. When you see this information begins to tap theF8 key repeatedly until you are presented with theBoot Options Advanced Windows Vista.
    3. Select the Safe Mode option with the arrow keys.
    4. Then press enter on your keyboard to start mode without failure of Vista.
    5. To start Windows, you'll be a typical logon screen. Connect to your computer and Vista goes into safe mode.
    6. Do whatever tasks you need and when you are done, reboot to return to normal mode.

    I find it peculiar that you just bought a HP computer brand new, still-in-the-box, which came with Windows 8, not 8.1, preinstalled Windows. That said, cross your fingers, roll up your sleeves and try the fix following multiple step, I cooked up just for your computer...

    ACTIONS

    [You may want to print these instructions for reference offline.  IMPORTANT => NO SKIP & perform all steps in one uninterrupted session!  [If a step said to restart, restart! ]

    1 right-click on the link, select SAVE TARGET as.... & download the Norton Removal Tool, save it to your desktop: ftp://ftp.symantec.com/public/english_us_canada/removal_tools/Norton_Removal_Tool.exe

    2. close all open applications (that is, anything with an icon on the taskbar).

    3. right click on the file that you saved in step #1 above and select run as administrator to run the Norton utility. DO TAP not your keyboard until the race ends, then restart.

    4. right-click on the following link and save the download to your desktop: ie8 - rereg.all.zip [1]

    4B. right click on the file that you saved in # 4 has & select EXTRACT ALL. This will create a new folder in Office also appointed ie8 - rereg.all. The folder contains both scripts below (plus a third that will NOT be).

    Note-online scripts are good for IE9, IE10 & IE11, too,

    5. close all open applications (that is, anything with an icon on the task bar), open the folder created in step # 4 b above & double-click on the file named ie8 - rereg.32on64.cmd to run the script.

    5 b. Repeat this for the file named ie8 - rereg.64on64.cmd then restart.

    6. reset Internet Explorer by the MANUAL of instructions on this page-online http://support.microsoft.com/kb/923737

    Note => for best results, check the option Remove personal settings .

    7 run the Windows Update Troubleshooter from start to finish by the first paragraph on this page-online http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/troubleshoot-problems-installing-updates [2]

    8. restart once more then test by launching a manual check of updates & see if KB2887069 any/all others updated and allows to install now. Follow all the instructions.

    9. assuming all went well, see if Windows 8.1 is available through the store Windows and, if so, if it will be properly installed. Still, follow all the instructions.


    http://Windows.Microsoft.com/en-us/Windows-8/update-from-Windows-8-tutorial
  • What's new in Win8.1?
    http://Windows.Microsoft.com/en-us/Windows-8/whats-new
  • 10. assuming that Win8.1 is now installed, perform another manual check for updates & install all Security updates offered (if any); Follow all the instructions.

    11. in response to this post with a status report. Also confirm (hopefully) that Windows 8.1 has been installed successfully.

    Good luck!

    [2] full Disclosure: the difficulty operating in AGGRESSIVE mode will remove your update history but not the list of installed updates.

  • Doesn't have installation of Vista updates. He continues to try set up the third update with 0% completion and then it turns off and start again from the beginning. Keep in the loop... Help! There is no error message.

    As above. He is not in windows more simply the third update installation and then turns off computer and restart new since the beginning. Tried running safe mode but without success

    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.

    http://NeoSmart.net/blog/2008/Windows-Vista-recovery-disc-download/

    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.

    Try starting with the ALT key down.  It waits for you to choose a library to open it.  If it does not open your library then there is something wrong with the library.

    Try running after have connected you to your computer under another account if it works, there is something wrong with the configuration of your account

    Try to remove and then reinstall iMovie

    "Auto update" would not end after a reboot. I got "update Comfiguring Windows - 0% complete - do not turn off your computer." Then I had to wait what he at the time.

    I tried 'manual' updated and that fixed the problem!

    Go to "Control Panel". Click on "system and security." Click on "Windows Update" and follow the directions.

    I selected the recommended updates and install them. Told me to reboot, one completed updates, OK.

    Problem solved!
