    Configuring Updates: Stage 3 of 3 0% Complete, Computer Restarts Continuously

    Yesterday, I used Avanquest System Suite 9, Recovery Commander to go back to a checkpoint date of 3/27/2010 to see if I could recover some internet explorer history after it was deleted on 3/31/2010 after I reset internet explorer settings which Belkin had me do since I was having problems connecting to my router, anyway, my wireless connection only got straightened out by me after I deleted my old network and created a new one etc...which is not an issue here-this is just how it all started.

    Well, when I was through seeing if I could retrieve my internet explorer history last night (proved unsuccessful) by going back to the Recovery Commander Checkpoint date of 3/27/2010, I decided to go back to the recovery commander Undo Checkpoint of 4/02/2010 which is what I created before I went to the 3/27/2010 checkpoint. My laptop computer restarted, and when it did, I saw Configuring Updates: Stage 3 of 3 0% Complete and it restarted continuously and has been doing that ever since. I was, however, able to keep it from restarting by clicking, Repair Your Computer and making my way over to the recovery console options and clicking the Shut Down Button, but that's the only way I could keep my computer from restarting.

    Just so you know, I have tried all of the F8 options and it does the same thing-keeps restarting and shows Configuring Updates: Stage 3 of 3 0% Complete and then shuts down and restarts. (The only thing that is left is Command Prompt under Recovery Console options after clicking Repair Your Computer). I have no System Restore points because I turned off System Restore several weeks ago-now I wish I hadn't because I would be able to use that option under the Recovery Console options if I hadn't done that. I did try the System Restore option just in case it might be on, but, it says "No system restore points have been created on your disc." or something like that with a Red X.

    I would like to disable Windows Updates through Command Prompt, but I don't know how. I believe if I could disable Windows Updates through Command Prompt, it would start up all the way and not show the Configuring Updates: Stage 3 0f 3 0% Complete. I believe my Windows Updates was up to date on 4/02/2010 before I went to the Recovery Commander Checkpoint date of 3/27/2010, but it was only when I was going back to the future Recovery Commander Checkpoint date of 4/02/2010 that it restarted continuously and showed Configuring Updates: Stage 3 0f 3 0% Complete.

    I have a Gateway Laptop, Model M-6324 (Out Of Warranty), Vista Home Premium 32 bit, Service Pack 2. And, I am using a friend's laptop to post this thread.


    Any help is appreciated

    The update is not installed successfully, you receive a message, and the
    computer restarts when you try to install an update in Windows Vista and
    Windows 7
