Turn on PC or restart it if it is running and keep pressing F8 during restart.

On screen that will appear choose to start it in "Safe Mode"

When it starts go to Start - Accessories - System tools - System restore - Restore my computer to an earlier time - choose restore point before the date and time when update was done.

Restoring can take a lot of time so be patient even if you think that progress bar is stuck it is still working. Make sure you choose the restore point older than update time.

I need a driver for my motherboard (ecs alhena5) especially vga driver. My OS is Windows XP sp3. tnx


Rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours http://download.cnet.com/slimdrivers-free/3000-18513_4-75279940.html Windows XP/Vista/7/8
it might take some time being a freeware driver solution Note: it will find all of your outdated drivers
This will automatically search for and find the correct driver you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you want to restart or make a system restore point.

Click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated.

Disable Automatic Reboot after Windows Update


Have you seen the message
"Automatic Updates
Updating your computer is almost complete. You must restart your computer for the updates to take effect.
Do you want to restart your computer now?"
Automatic Windows updates are very good for computer security. However, when these Windows updates are downloaded and installed on your computer, if the updates require a reboot of your computer, Windows keeps prompting you to reboot your computer.

Now, Windows XP Pro users can disable automatic reboot of the computer after a Windows Update. In order to do that, follow these steps

Disable Automatic Reboot after Windows Update for Windows XP Pro usersWith this setting you will be able to specify that after a scheduled Windows update, Automatic updates will wait for the computer to be restarted by any user who is logged on, instead of causing the computer to restart automatically. If this setting is not enabled or not configured, your computer will prompt you every 5 minutes to restart the computer to complete the installation.


1. Press <Windows Key> + R which will launch the Run command. Type gpedit.msc and press Enter
2. Group Policy Editor will now be launched
3. On the left hand pane, under Local Computer Policy, click on the (+) sign next to Computer Configuration
4. Click on the (+) sign next to Administrative Templates. Then click on (+) next to Windows Components and then click on Windows Update
5. Double click on No auto-restart for scheduled Automatic Updates installations. A settings window will now open. In there, select Enabled and then press OK

6. Close the Group Policy Editor
Disable Automatic Reboot after Windows Update for Windows XP Home usersThe settings are a bit different for Windows XP Home users because there is no group policy configuration for Windows XP Home.
1. Press <Windows Key> + R and type in regedit. Press Enter
2. Navigate to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE SoftwarePolicies MicrosoftWindows WindowsUpdateAU
3. Change the "NoAutoRebootWithLoggedOnUsers" DWord value to 1 to Disallow auto reboot.
4. Press OK

    Downloaded windows automatic update stuck on 3 of 3 for last few days. tried last known good config does nothing, i always return to updating 3 of 3 cannot get my comp to do anything else. help desperately...


    An issue has been identified by Microsoft that, after installing Windows Updates, a Computer displays a Configuring updates: stage 3 of 3. 0% complete message, reboots, comes back to that message again, and repeats the cycle. This problem occurs when Windows Update is attempting to install update 937287.

    Follow this procedure to resolve the error:

    1. Remove all connected peripheral Devices from the Computer.

    2. Press and hold the power button until the Computer completely shuts down.

    3. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.

    4. Leave the Computer without any power for at least 30 seconds.

    5. Reconnect the Computer to the power supply and then turn it back on.

    6. Allow the Computer to start normally.


    NOTE 1: Once the Computer has completely started into the Operating System, Windows Updates should automatically finish installing the update. If the update again fails to install completely, restart the Computer in Safe Mode (by tapping the F8 Kay at Start-up) and use the System Restore feature to return the Computer to a time before the issue started.

    Click the Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> System Restore.

    NOTE 2: To avoid this issue, obtain and install update 937287 from the Microsoft Download Center separately from all other updates on the Windows Update site. Install the update that applies to your version of Windows Vista so that you can successfully install future updates.

    For more information about this error, refer to the Microsoft KB Article ID 949358.


    Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If you are not set up to recieve automatic updates from microsoft you should change your settings to download these automatically and keep these up to date. To do this go to the start button, go to control panel, and then to security center. Click on automatic updates and follow the prompts.To get all of the latest updates go to the start button, go to all programs, point to and left click on windows update.

You have to repeat the windows update process a few times in order to recieve all of the latest updates.

    Computer Restarts.


    Most probably windows is generating an error and your computer is set to automatically restart when an error occurs. Try disabling automatic restart. right click my computer and select properties. click on the advanced tab and uncheck the automatically restart check box.

    The reason why we need to do this is for us to see the actual error so that we will know what to do.
