    Please do not Power off or unplug your machine


    It is second time in this month.
    When I tried reload the windows, It would not start and only show:
    Please do not Power off or unplug your machine
    Installing Update 3 of 5

    (Or Installing 5 of 5)

    It will last forever,
    The only way is turn off and unplug the machine to let it start windows.

    I do not know if it is really update windows vista, CA antivirus or some
    other program.
    I do not know other person have some experience

    Thanks

    Everyone with Vista or XP has experienced this when they have updated. It
    can take a long time. You have to wait long enough. Turning it off manually
    may have caused damage.

    If waiting even one hour or a little more, OK
    But after several hours I thought it might in dead loop
    then I decided menually turned off windows and even I had to unplug the
    machine.
    After power on the window restarted and I did not find any other thing
    wrong.

    You can learn more about updates here. And, as Gene said, we've all gone through this.

    OK, several hours is definitely bad, and I would've done the same as you
    did. There's really no other choice at that point. And I would have scanned
    for damage afterwards (chkdsk and fsk, for example).

    I'm glad it came out OK. Scary... (or should I say :scary:?)

    Re: Please do not Power off or unplug your machine


    I experienced another two, Both keep me waiting about 10 hours.
    Then I checked windows update history and just told me it was update
    security update for VS and end up with "failed".
    Then I downloaded this upate and run it under winows, only took some
    minites and end up with success
