Computer stuck on updating screen

If Bill Gates had to make good on all his promises and fix the crap he sold he would be on welfare right now! Hi Lee, How would be the best way for you to repost your original solution for Windows XP. Once you're in safe mode then roll your system back to a period before the update download and installation.

After the roll back is finished you'll want to reinstall all your necessary items that were backed up during the rollback.

Tell them about the problem and see if they can fix it. If they can't you may have to contact Microsoft themselves and have them fix the problem Thanks all for the many seemingly workable responses, but, in some cases, at least mine, you cannot access safe mode, cannot repair and cannot do any of the usual escapes.Please be as detailed as possible in your answer and if you are referencing information, please provide the link. My Windows Vista laptop downloaded some Windows automatic updates and the third update never updated properly.Now my computer is stuck in a cycle of trying to update then shutting down and restarting.

If you don't know how to start in 'Safe Mode', all you have to do is start up your computer and repeatedly hit the f8 button till it gives you the option to start in 'Safe Mode'I hope this helps Go to control panel, click on security center, go to automatic updates then change your preferences to notify me but don't automatically download or install them, which you should do anyways since you don't want all the downloads....unless you just really like SP3 or IE8 lol. It will not download or update unless you tell it to and which ones to update.
