Updates Configuring 3 Of 3 - 0% // Then Shutdown" And Repeat
Apr 5, 2009
First of all I would like to say I love this forum if it wasn't for this forum my Desktop/HDtv(as my monitor) would have a keyboard stuck in it. Why you might ask, well I was stuck on "Updates Configuring 3 of 3 - 0% // then Shutdown" and repeat. Also I'm a new Vista owner and so far its been shaky but I plan on over coming it. NOW!, To why I'm here, I keep my desktop empty and use the Dell Dock (Mac style Dock that came with my Dell). I cleaned out and disabled most of the stuff on the startup I don't need. So the problem I'm having is that the Dell Dock is the last thing to load after my antivirus and firewall and spyware programs. My question is, is there anyway to make the Dell Dock load first? Is there anyway to do this even with registry hacking? I want the Dell Dock to load up before most of the other startup programs.
Have been using Vista about 18 months and have never found a cure for this problem: when the computer goes to sleep, the settings for 'repeat delay' and 'repeat rate' are erased. Typing slows down to a crawl, and I have to reset them every time I wake up the computer (I've added a quick link to Keyboard Properties because I know I'll use it at least once a day). Why hasn't there been a fix for this? I know I'm not the only one complaining.
I am having trouble with my windows updates. Updates history shows that all updates have successfully been installed. However, when I turn on and off my computer, I get a screen "configuring updates - 3 of 3". The computer takes ages to start or turn off....
how to stop configuring updates because i am tired of my stupid anti virus saying that the program is broken after each update and when the update happens it stays at 3of3 0% then i have to go to safe mode restart computer then it doesent do the updates which i am tired of this..and i do not have the disk of the vista it came with my computer when i bought it.
I received 4 updates today and all 4 installed however one update KB961371 showed error 800703F9. While configuring updates it would show Stage 1 of 3-0%complete. Then it would show updates not configured propertly. I tried this several time, same results. I did a system restore and then tried installing only the security update, same results. After this I reinstalled the other 3 update with no problem. This is the first time I have had a update not to install. I am using AVG Internet Security 8.5 version, however I don't think this is the problem as I have received over 130 windows updates inthe past. I do have windows set to install updates automatically every day. I have contacted MS with this information but have not received a answer. To tell the truth I trust the forum more. I look up some information and this update applies to 2008 windows server Itanium-based system. I have a HP Pavilion s3120n with AMD 64 live processor.
Sure enough, after waiting impatiently for months, I tried to install SP1 today and it was a disaster.
1) It gets to 'configuring updates stage 3 of 3' and FREEZES at 0%. 2)This forces reboot, same freeze. 3) So I reboot in safe mode, and it resumes installation of stage 3 and gets to 98% - whoo - hoo! 4) And then, after two hours of this, it says 'Service Pack could not install; reverting changes' 5) Back to square 1, an entire evening wasted.
Damn you, Microsoft. I'm running a simple laptop, nothing special. I disabled the firewall, the antivirus, antispyware, and network before trying to install SP1. Nothing. NADA. How long do you idiots have to work on this thing to get it to succeed on any simple laptop? Years? Decades? Other people are reporting similar problems. Are you gonna respond? Or are you gonna just *&%$ up my machine permanently when you FORCE this stinking, bug-ridden service pack onto it in a few weeks time? And then who do I sue?
I am running a triple boot system and have just completed installing XP, all updates, and applications. Now I am in the midst of getting Vista Ultimate installed but initally was getting a Code 52 error, when I installed Office 2007 the error disappeared and I was able to update Vista and Office with the exception of these three update which would initally say they were downloaded and installed and then on the reboot configuring after rebooting it would say that these updates were not configured properly and would revert them. I have tried to download them earliest to lastest still same problem occuring. Have deleted all temp files and cookies still nothing.
These are the three update that will not configure correctly. A software update is available for the Windows Vista installation components A June 2008 update is available for the Windows Vista Customer Experience Improvement Program (CEIP) An October 2008 update is available for the Windows Vista Customer Experience Improvement Program (CEIP)
I just recently purchased a new game, and it said it would help the game's performance to install Vista Service Pack 1. While doing this, at the end of configuring updates, I recieved a black screen and "0xc0190036" with some message like keyboard. after it. It never changed from this screen. From different websites online, I read my best bet is to reinstall Vista. I have an Acer computer, and I am not positive that I recieved a back-up CD with my purchase. If I did, it must be lost, as my house is organized like an OCD freak would do. I was able to find XP OS disk, and quickly put that in, only to soon realize this was a Dell OS. This basically was a whole bunch of fail, and now it seems my only option is to boot "CD-ROM" with the Vista CD which I do not have in there...
I have a Dell laptop with Vista Home Premium installed. Everything was going fine today until I clicked for updates to be installed and then to re-start after the updates, as normal. However, now when I start the computer the Windows screen says 'Configuring Updates: Stage 3 of 3. 0% complete' then it shuts down and automatically restarts with the same message. This has been going on for hours and I cannot get into Windows or do anything else. Is this a virus?
The initial configurations done as per the setup and wizard instructions provided by hp. After some time, suddenly the system performace was too slow and it has given me a huge shock and made me think like i've wasted my money! BUT after installed the windows updates, it's performance increased tremendously. There is always the alert which shows install Windows updates. Even when i tried to shutdown the system, it pops up 'Install Updates and shut down'.
So i've installed the updates almost every day otherwise it will not allow me to perform any operations. Is this expected behaviour? Can't we work without installing any windows updates atleast for a month? I am afraid may be some performance issue on this model! Due to these every day installation of windows updates, its killing my hard drive like anything.. Intially, in C drive, the free space was 243 GB of 260GB, now its reduced to 225GB of 260GB. I am loosing my memory because of this updates.
Sometime after 24/11/08 I installed about 4 vista updates, after which boot and shutdown times greatly increased. By which I mean, when you get the green sliding bar when booting, pre-update I would get between 6 and 11 bar progressions, after update I got 50 to 51, before completing the boot. I've now turned off updates completely and system restored back pre- 24/11/08, and alls well again. From looking at these forums it seems I am not along with update issues. I'll leave updates turned off I think.
last night before bed I clicked shutdown and install updates in Vista. I woke up this morning and my computer will not turn on. It leads me to this: Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:
1. Insert your windows installation disc and restart your computer.
2. Choose your language settings, and then click "next"
3. Click "repair your computer"
If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assisance.
Info: An error occured while attempting to read the boot configuration data.
problem I have is that I do not have vista installation dvd. I am currently studying abroad in Rome and will take more time than I have to receive the dvd in the mail. None of my friends here have one either, but they all have the same make and model computer that I do. Is it possible for one of them create a installation dvd that I could use? Or could they make a recovery disc that could as least get me to the system recovery options screen?
when I just turned on the computer the message "Configuring updates" and "Please wait" appeared. Afterwards, when it was completed, all the programs previously open (I kept my session in memory) were closed! When I opened IE, all the tabs were there, but other files I were working on were gone.
I opened a folder and because it had multiple repeat messages I clicked on one (I think) to delete it and the whole folder disappeared. I looked in the deleted items folder. It wasn't there. I looked in the Recycle Bin and it wasn't there so I lost all the legit messages I had in that folder.
I have read elsewhere of some users experiencing the problem of hard disks making the infamous clicking noises on shutdown of any version of vista. I don't know if its only SATA HD but thats what I have and I am experiencing the same thing. It has me concerned that the clicking of the HD arms might be unnecessary wear and tear. any fixes for this?
I decided to do a complete reinstall of Vista 32 bit. What I'd like to know is the configuration of my Bios. I have an abit NF-M2S with a AMD 64 X2 4400 running wirh corsair 2x 1gb xms2 ddr2-800 cas mem. Like I said not sure about the bios settings but I am looking for proper performance. Also have an Hauppauge HVR-1600, I can set up the usual HD and boot process stuff, but the other timing and such got me lost.
I am currently in the process of configuring a new Dell XPS 630. I want the system to be primarily for gaming. I have yet to use a PC with Vista, so needless to say I am not familiar with it, let alone the difference between Vista 32-bit and 64 bit systems. The price difference between the 32- and 64-bit systems that I am debating between is very small. Anyway, my questions and concerns are. Is there an advantage to having a 62-bit version over a 32-bit version of vista when it comes to gaming? Any performance problems/issues of one or the other?
If I get the 64-bit version, will 4GB of RAM be enough for gaming or do I need more? Which processor will be better... Intel® Core™2 Q6600 Quad-Core (8MB L2 cache,2.40GHz,1066FSB) or Intel® Core™2 E8500 (6MB,3.16 GHz, 1333FSB)? How much hard drive space does the OS take up? Would a 500GB hard drive be a decent size. (assuming I plan to remove most games after they are completed)Here is the configuration Im looking at. Price with shipping comes to $1216 USD. Plus I have $550 worth of Dell gift cards I've been saving. Nice thing is 19in monitor is included.........
Desktop PC will be one year next month. I did not renew the Microsoft Office after trial period that came as a package w/ no future intention of acquiring it. I'm using the free Open Office program - word processing mostly at this time. Is there anything in the list below that is of importance? I only have a basic PC with DVD player for movies, etc. No scanner, printer or fax. Not even external hard drive or usb flash drive. Otherwise, I understand that I can just choose to hide the updates, so it will not keep reminding me. Also, I choose to keep my OS w/ Srvce pk 1 and MS IE version 7 for as long as I'll be able to. I had too many probs with Srvce pk 2 and MS IE version 8. Your opinion, if any, is welcome.......
Why after decades of Windows development won't opened windows maintain their set positions but instead continue to revert to other positions? In the case of IE the window size does remain a constant but something continues to upset its position. The position upset is not caused by closing the first instance of a window down first before other instances of IE for instance--that always upsets the first instance position of the window. I think there are many things that come along more important to spend man-hours on fixing but ignoring a real solution to something this obvious for so long a time I cannot condone. Size and position of a primary window's location ought to stick as sure as one's Home Page remains what you have set for it.
Equally annoying and unexplained is why some windows like MSConfig that can display a number of columns of data depending on what you are looking at in it have never been able to resize (or position) at all to properly display the data. For me these are two really disgusting oversights. I wonder why, if Windows has a Registry that no one seems to care how it gets used or how large it grows, it can't be used to lock in window locations, sizing, expansion, configuration, etc. data, and keep these window parameters from reverting back to something less?
i'm trying to use the RDC in my pc running Vista Home Premium to get connect on a Windows 2003 server. I'm getting error when i try to log on. I open the port in my firewall already and i did most of the steps that windows help gave to me.
I've just started to use readyboost by pushing a 4GB usb stick into the port and configuring it to 'Improve system performance'. I can see its little light flashing, so I assume it is working. Is there anyway of measuring how much it is improving (or not) system performance. I have 2 Gb ram.
I have my power settings configured ot turn off the monitor after 15 minutes of inactivity. . . but the problem is, if I'm playing a game with my Logitech USB Gamepad, Vista doesn't count the input from the gamepad as 'activity', which is a little puzzling.
Is there a way to get Vista to recognize gamepad input as activity so that it does not turn off my display in the middle of playing my game? I do realize that I can change my power settings to just not turn off the display, but that's inconvenient because then I have to change my settings back when I'm done with the game. As far as I'm concerned, Vista is just not behaving in a reasonable fashion if game controller input doesn't prevent screen blanking.
I have Windows Home Premium 64 Bit and every time I restart I get a message saying 1 to 3 updates ... I then see this message again on startup. I feel like something is wrong with the update system. I reinstalled Vista and disabled automatic updates. However, after a while I started to get the same problem. I have Office, Visual Studio, Messenger and a few Adobe products installed.
Im sorry but I wasnt sure which section this post should go in. I have plugged my xbox 360 into my Toshiba Satellite laptop with a cross over cable. I am using a wireless connection with my laptop and I attempted to bridge my connection so i can play XBL on my 360. I recieved this message: "An unexpected error occured while configuring the network bridge." This started happening after i reinstalled windows. Before the reinstallation it worked completely fine absolutetly no problems. There are no more updates to install on windows updates. I am unsure if what im about to say has anything to do with this problem, but here goes. I went to device manager and went under network adapters clicked show hidden devices and then I tried to update my WAN miniport drivers(all of them) but everytime for all of them i get this message: " Windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error when trying to install it, the system cannot find the file specified. What is my next step?
The download agent seems to work fine installing the Live suite of programs on my Vista-64 system. I can use Messenger without any problems, and can get to my hotmail account through Internet Explorer just fine. However when I go to use the Live Mail application a box comes up that say Windows is "configuring my system" then disappears with nothing else happening. The application never actually loads. I test the Windows Live mail on my laptop with XP and it works great. what the hangup is on Vista 64. I have 4GB of RAM, Pentium Quad Extreme processor, 320GB HD system.
