    Oktober updates ........my laptop hangs at reboot at Stage 3 of 3 forever

    After install of the oktober vista 32 bits updates a reboot is rewuired,
    after reboot it tells:
    Configuring updates Stage 3 of 3 0% complete
    this stays there forever, it never completes on my Dell laptop XPS M1710

    ( the update on my PC Dell XPS 420 was succesful )

    what could be the problem?

    The update is not installed successfully, you receive a message, and the
    computer restarts when you try to install an update in Windows Vista

    laptop XPS M1710?

    Did you even read the article?

    Method 1: Start Windows Vista with the Windows installation disc, and then
    use the Repair feature

    Yes I did read the article, and I dont have this problem my laptop does NOT
    restart, Vista comes up normally.
    As I explained:

    After install of the oktober vista 32 bits updates a reboot is rewuired,
    after reboot it tells:
    Configuring updates Stage 3 of 3 0% complete
    this stays there forever, it never completes on my Dell laptop XPS M1710
    ( the update on my PC Dell XPS 420 was succesful )

    After waiting for 30 minutes still 0% completed,
    I switched off my laptop, switched on again Vista starts up NORMALLY and
    now the message came
    again:
    Configuring updates Stage 3 of 3 0% complete
    but now it was 100% completed in 1 minute.
    and windows update tells me ..all updates were succesful installed

    So all the updates are now installed successfully -

    You can check which updates are installed on your computer by -
    Start button || Control Panel || Programs
    Under Programs and Features - click View installed updates.

    If you like many internet trouble with vista and the updates which hangs at 3 / 3 and your pc restarts constantly . So here is the solution,
    1) Put a vista CD
    2) Launch the start of the pc.
    3) The installation begins to leave the.
    4) To the next page it will ask you if you want to install or repair the system
    5) choose repair
    6) You go to the page system repair
    7) choose a date to restore.
    8) choose the one you want.
    9) Leave the work until you restart.
