Question about Computers & Internet

Open Question

I just signed with ATS. Every morning when I boot up my computer, I can't go any further because there s this message"Configuring updates:Step 1of 5 do not turn off your computer etc. Then up comes another message "updates were not configured correctly. Reverting changes. What does hit mean, how do I get rid of it, why is it there etc. It is most annoying. I am using Windows Vista Home Basic. I am not putting any more money into this.

SOURCE: Not configuring update correctly...reverting changes

You didn't give your make, model of laptop, or your OS? What updates? Did you reboot your machine? Shut down, unplug, remove battery, plug in, reboot. Sometimes if you have change the OS on a machine you will get erroneous updates. Sometimes due to other conditions you will get a error message that may help to ID the problem.

My computer keeps saying, "Configuring


Here is how you solve this problem...

1. Boot the computer into the "Safe Mode" options by pressing F8 prior the Windows Logo.
2. Select the option "Repair Your Computer"
Note: If you do not have this option, you will need the client's Windows Disc. Once you have that disc, boot into it as if you were to install windows and after you select the language you will get the "Repair Your Computer" option.
3. Now you can get into Command Prompt
4. From the Command Prompt window, navigate to \Windows\winsxs folder
5. Then type: rename pending.xml pending.old.xml
6. Now reboot the PC, you might still see the configuring updates, but this time it will go away.

and walaaa, there you go..

hope this would help you..

please vote.. thanks so much

My inspiron 1525 crashed and I turned it off using power button. Every time it comes on again it says 'configuring update stage 3 of 3 - do not turn off your computer'. It keeps shutting itself off then...


1. Insert your Vista Media into your dirve and boot from it.
2. Select "Repair your Computer" from the list.
3. Select "Command Prompt" from the recovery choices.
4. At the command prompt change your directory to C:WindowsWinSxS
5. Type: del pending.xml
6. Exit and reboot

This will fix all Windows update reboot loops and does not require you to restore your PC to and earlier state.

Configuring updates dont stop


I'll assume last known good configuration didn't work, if you press f8 and choose disable automatic restart on failure, you should see the blue screen of death with more info, when you reboot the next time,(you may have to hold in power button for 5 secs), press f8 and see if Repair my computer is listed on the Microsoft Startup menu, if not, insert a windows vista disk and restart,booting to the cd(should happen automatically, but look for a prompt to press a key) choose your language, then choose repair my computer, choose the windows installation, and you can try to use system restore to go back before the uodates were installed and updated, then disable automatic updating so it doesn't repeat.

Acer5920 stuck in configuring updates.


This is generally caused by bad blocks in the Master Boot Record(Table). The drive itself is probably not salvagable. You'll need a reputable reapir person to slave your drive to another system to get the data off.

Good Luck

When I switch on Acer Aspire 5315 get message "Configuring updates 3 of 3 0% complete" for a few second then pc shuts down restarts and goes back to the same configuring updates message just...


try starting the computer in safe mode. As the computer boots keep pressing F8 until you hear a beep. The computer will or should start in safe mode, once it has everything will look big, don't worry about that for now, click on start>programs>accessories>system tools>system restore and choose a date for when you know the computer was working without any problems. Once the computer has restored it will shut down and reboot. When/if asked what mode you want to boot/start your computer choose start windows normally. I hope this helps.
