Reboot if you can into Safe mode. If you cannot do this, the problem may be hardware related, possibly overheating? If it feels hot, let it cool down and try again, and repost any firther information

Updates fail to download


Nasty! I would try going to Start>Restart> OK Your computer is not actually turned off then. When it starts booting up again, tap the f8 key continually until you get a screen of text. Select start in Safe Mode and see if it boots up in Safe Mode. Then try and go on line and download the updates again.
If all that fails you will have to close down your computer and switch off. Wait 15 secs, cross your fingers and start up again!

    My windows vista won't open


    If it does this after re-booting the computer then something got corrupted when it was updating. You could try pressing F8 when the computer is first booting up(right before window starts). This will bring up a menu. Choose the option to run the last known good configuration and see if that gets windows working again. You might need to choose a restoration point to get windows working. If you get it working and then the windows update tries to install the updates again hopefully they will work this time. If it happens again then make sure to cancel those updates and contact Microsoft with the software issue.

    I keep getting the same updates for Vista


    If you don't want your computer to recieved updates that it's very annoying then Turn-off automatic system Updates. To do it just follow the instructions below:

    Step 1 Click the "Start" button on the taskbar or press the "Windows Key" on your key board (located to the right of the Ctrl Key and left of the Alt Key)
  • Step 2 In the search box enter the words "Windows Update" without the quotes you can copy the text directly from this page to make it easier.
  • Step 3 On the left side of the window that opens it will have a list of options click on the option labeled "Change Settings".
  • Step 4 After that you will have to make some choices. If you select "Install update Automatically" then you simply pick a time that is good for you and your computer will download the updates and install them when you are not on your computer. If you select "Download updates but let me install them" then you will download updates in the background while you are using your computer and then will ask you are the files are downloaded if you are ready to install them. If you decide to select "Never Check For Updates" then your computer will never download or install updates.
  • Step 5 If you select "Never Check For Updates" then it is highly recommend that you open "Internet Explorer" and visit "http://update.microsoft.com" at least once a month and install any updates that are labeled critical.
