    I normally have Windows Update set to Install Automatically. When
    closing down Windows Media I get a notice that there are 4 updates.
    They get loaded and then the computer shuts down.
    When I start the computer again, usually the next day, I get a message
    that it is Configuring Windows and I wait. After a while, it seems
    like 10 minutes, I am notified that the Reconfiguration Failed and
    windows starts.
    This problem has been going on for about a week. How can I avoid it?
    thanks for any and all help

    Click the Start orb > click All Programs > *right* click Windows Media
    Player. Agree to the UAC prompt.
    Close Windows Media Player.

    Were the updates offered again ?
    Did the install this time ?
