    Laptop with Vista is trying to configure updates (unknown what updates). On
    startup screen says Configuring updates stage 3 of 3 0% complete Please do
    not turn off computer. % does not change, then it goes to Shutting Down
    screen, reboots and is in endless cycle. Is there anyway to stop it?

    Unlimited installation and compatibility support for Vista SP1 is available
    at no charge *but only through 18 March 2009*!!

  4. Try Method 1 or begin a new thread about /your/ problem to avoid confusion.
    State your full Windows version (e.g., Vista SP1; Vista x64 SP2) in your
    first post.
