    updates not configured correctly

    I keep getting prompted that there are updates to install on my Vista Home
    Here is the sequence after installing the updates:

    First: please do not turn off or unplug your machine. Installing updates 1
    of 5 ..
    Second: Configuring updates: stage 3 of 3 0% complete. Do not turn off your
    Third after restarting the computer: Updates were not configured correctly:
    reverting changes. Do not turn off your computer.

    Then it goes back to asking me to installe the updates again and again...

    Always state your full Windows version (e.g., Vista SP1) when posting to
    this newsgroup, please.

    The update is not installed successfully, you receive a message [i.e.,
    "configuring updates stage 3 of 3. 0% complete"], and the computer restarts
    when you try to install an update in Windows Vista:

    Windows version is SP1

    You still have not defined your OS. Is XP SP1 or Vista SP1? It might even
    be W2K SP1 for all I know.

    Did you install Vista SP1 manually or via Windows Update, Dino?

    Have you looked at yet? Tip: Skip
    everything else in the KB article and scroll down to the MORE INFORMATION

    Via windows update. All had been working fine up untill about a week ago.
    On one hand I have the shield on the power off icon (Start) and on the other
    the Automatic Updates trying to download the same updates I believe are
    already waiting to be configured. Thank you for the help.
