If the computer appears to be frozen in a program, the update will not do you any good.
Depending on how long you waited, I would invoke the task manager and see what process is hung up.
press ctrl/alt/del simultaneously only once, the task manager screen should appear, select the bottom option.
When the window pops up, select the far left tab (applications or programs) and see which is running or which is not.
If there is one or more that are not responding, terminate them by selecting them and clicking on the button end program.
You will get a warning, acknowledge it and continue.
If this was holding up your system, you should be able to restore your system to an earlier point using system restore.
If your system is COMPLETELY unresponsive, then you have no choice but to shut it down. hold the power button for 5 sec (default power down)
when the system comes back up, it will ask you how you would like to boot, (safe mode normal mode.....)
Select normal boot up.
Restore your system to the last restore point.
When your system is again functioning properly, create your new restore point, then try the update again.

Good luck

Whats (Failure configuring Windows updates Reverting changes Do not turn off your computer.


windows configures windows systems with each new update for that windows system
if you have the update installed automatically as they become available then the computer has to suspend operations while the updates are put into the operating system
That means that a new registry is created and the program placed accordingly on the hard drive
it requires that the computer be left on until that is achieved and will in some instances shut down and then restart the computer to effect certain changes
It is imperative that when this is happening that you leave the computer turned on and leave it alone as any programs you open may become corrupted or corrupt the existing programs
you will normally get this notification on shutdown which will shutdown when finished and on opening next time so that the previous download can be configured into the computer properly
it just means that you have to wait for the computer to do ti's thing

My Gateway was doing a Windows update. When it finished, I have a new message that says FAILURE CONFIGURATING WINDOWS UPDATES REVERTING CHANGES. Now it is stuck on this screen. How do I stop it so that I...


DO NOT stop it! It's backing out a whole lot of changes it made - if you stop it, your computer will be in a halfway state.

It's like surgery - you can't just stop in the middle of surgery so you can ask the patient a question. Ask before, or ask after, but DO NOT interrupt surgery!

My Gateway laptop won't boot up it keeps saying "failure configuring Windows updates reverting changes" Do not turn off your computer


Make sure the Date & Time are set correctly on your machine. That can interfere with Windows Update. If your computer has the wrong date/time, you need a new cmos battery (available anywhere). Then, If you are running Windows 7, try the "Windows Update - Reset" options here... http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/91738-windows-update-reset.html?filter
