Here is how you solve this problem...

1. Boot the computer into the "Safe Mode" options by pressing F8 prior the Windows Logo.
2. Select the option "Repair Your Computer"
Note: If you do not have this option, you will need the client's Windows Disc. Once you have that disc, boot into it as if you were to install windows and after you select the language you will get the "Repair Your Computer" option.
3. Now you can get into Command Prompt
4. From the Command Prompt window, navigate to \Windows\winsxs folder
5. Then type: rename pending.xml pending.old.xml
6. Now reboot the PC, you might still see the configuring updates, but this time it will go away.

and walaaa, there you go..

hope this would help you..

please vote.. thanks so much

Computer keep saying "configuring update 3 of 3"


Power off the machine (hold down the power button for over 3 seconds), and restart it, but press the F8 button to go into Safe Mode. Use the system restore option to go back to a time before the update was installed (exact procedure alters based on your OS)

I would wait a good 10-20 minutes before going this route though, just in case the update IS installing, but being slow.

Re boot in safe mode and run 'restore point' from the search box. Select a date/time just before the problem update happened. That will reset your date/time to before the update.

My computer is stuck in the configuring updates: stage 3 of 3 - 0% complete.


give it some time to install that update, if its still not working then might be possible that the update was not downloaded properly or it got corrupted while installation due to which its stucked on stage 3 of 3.

In these situations we can try to restart the computer into the safe mode and and then check which update is causing the computer to stuck on stage 3 of 3. If possible try to kill that update in safe mode too. To help you on that you need to provide me some more information.

Which operating system are you using?

My dell laptop having vista is showing "Configuring Updates Stage 3 of 3 0% complete Do not turn off Computer". Pls, tell me in detail what should i do?


How long has it been stuck on 0%? Sometimes it can take a while to download or install large updates. If it has been going for too long, check to make sure you haven't lost Internet connectivity -- if Windows suddenly can't get the rest of the update, it will freeze.

My inspiron 1525 crashed and I turned it off using power button. Every time it comes on again it says 'configuring update stage 3 of 3 - do not turn off your computer'. It keeps shutting itself off then...


1. Insert your Vista Media into your dirve and boot from it.
2. Select "Repair your Computer" from the list.
3. Select "Command Prompt" from the recovery choices.
4. At the command prompt change your directory to C:WindowsWinSxS
5. Type: del pending.xml
6. Exit and reboot

This will fix all Windows update reboot loops and does not require you to restore your PC to and earlier state.

Acer5920 stuck in configuring updates.


This is generally caused by bad blocks in the Master Boot Record(Table). The drive itself is probably not salvagable. You'll need a reputable reapir person to slave your drive to another system to get the data off.

Good Luck

Stuck on the updating screen


Reboot your computer and when the message appears at the desktop that there are updates available, click on the link to see what updates are available. Make sure any third-party antivirus and firewalls are disabled. Uncheck any that are "Optional" unless you really think your system needs them. Try installing those that are critical/important first, and leave the rest for afterwards.
