If you windows update doesn't work correctly then you need to stop and restart the correct services and reload the correct DLL on you operating system use DIAL-A-FIX for an easy fix for Windows Update
you can also fix the Windows MSI installer using this program.

You also need to make sure that you use Internet Explorer for the least amount of hassle even though other browsers will work.

On last check is under the Internet options security tab in the trusted site make sure that the windows update website is listed there.

When i switch on my acer aspire 5735 i see a blue screen informing me that windows is updating 3 of 3 updates but nothing happens as the screen just hangs for hours? Thanks


i think your windows was updating itself but there is a problem with the update maybe you did not finish the update or the update file got corrupted. try if you can go safe mode that might fix the problem if still the same you need to reinstall your Windows.
if you are familiar with Windows installation there is an option there wherein you can repair your previous Windows installation. try that it might help before reinstalling windows.

My sony vaio cant configure properly


Start the Computer and keep tapping the F8 key to access the Windows Advanced Options.
Select Last Known Good Configuration.

If the issue persists, you can try start up repair from the Windows Advanced Options.

If the start up repair is not present in there, you can use the Windows Operating System disc to launch it

Hi,
do a system restore and restore it back to a previous date in time, but doing a system restore to a previous date in time will mean that you will loose any configuration done or any software installed after that date

restore your system to a date when you are certain that it was working fine and nect time it prompts to load updates choose custom and select and install only security updates which are very necessary not all of them.

I have an acer aspire laptop, when i start it up its says configuring updates stage 3 of 3 0% complete then it will shut down come back on say the same again and shut down again. it will keep on doing this


Maybe you could try the last known good configuration. When the laptop is starting up, wait until the acer screen disappears and then tap F8 on the keyboard before the windows screen comes up. You should get a black screen with some options that say safe mode. The fourth or so option on the list will be "Last Known Good Configuration". The computer should try and load windows. Hopefully that will restore the machine before the update. 

If it works it would be a good idea to go to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/ and fully update your laptop. This will download the update manually instead of doing it with automatic updates.
