Hi follis_valpn,

If you are trying to install the Windows Update 937287, you will get this (configuring updates stage 3 of 3. 0% complete) message. If you are getting the message even after restarting the Computer, you may need to repair the Windows (using the installation Disc) or restore the Computer to an earlier date.

First you can try restarting the Computer in the Safe Mode and do the System Restore. To access the Safe Mode, please press and hold the F8 Key whlie restarting the Computer. Then, please click "Start", "All Programs", "Accessories", "System Tools" and "System Restore". Then, please select a restore point (Date) when the Computer was working correctly. This should restore the Computer to the selected date and fix the issue.

The, alternative option is to use the Windows Installation Disc and perform the "Repair" option.

The issue will be fixed after you perform any of the above steps. To avoid the issue in future (whlie doing the Windows Update), please download and install the Windows Update 937287 from Microsoft Download Center separately.

Below is the link to obtain the Update.

http://download.microsoft.com/download/3/b/d/3bd7db67-7a7a-4c16-b10a-e0eace7d9473/Windows6.0-KB937287-v2-x86.msu

Hope this helps..

Good Luck!

Thanks for using Fixya.

Try a system restore and install your updates individually to see which one has caused the issue.

Windows Vista hangs at 3 of 3


You should be able to go to Add Remove and remove the specific update from the date it was loaded. You can also try a System Restore if you have one available for that date. The update did not install itself properly and keeps trying to do so.

Microsoft Outlook '07 repeatedly crashing & restarting on its own.


If this a new problem try doing a restore to a date previous date where it worked. vista 64 does have problem in that not all older programs work with it and if they do they have bugs that cause your type of problem. My transfer to vista 64 was racked with your type of frustrations, but I have worked through most of them and have learned to work around the others. Update often because microsoft and others know there are  problems and they do want this system to work for everyone.  New updates come when complaints are made. Complain!

Lost my cd


hi Laurie,

If your printer was working fine previously, i suggest to restore your computer to that specific date using the system restore features.

1. Go to Start
2. Programs - Accessories - System tools - System restore

You will see a pop up window. Just follow the direction then select the date when your printer was working fine. If the issue still the same, please provide me the type of printer you have the and the Operating system you are using like windows xp or windows vista

Keep me posted.

Thanks

NO YOU JUST NEED TO RESTORE YOUR SYSTEM TO AN EARLIER DATE (BEFORE VISTA GOT UPDATED) GO TO START MENU CLICK ACCESSORIES THEN SYSTEM TOOLS AND THEN SYSTEM RESTORE .. CHOOSE THE CORRECT DATE AND RESTORE
