Vista reboot repeatedly after installing update

I woke up today and found out my Vista PC reboot itself repeatedly and can't
complete the Windows update installation. My PC is a Dell 8300 with Windows
Ultimate (32 bit).

I see the system, after reboot, saying "Configure update, step 3 of 3" and
see it starts with 0% then to 93% and then it holds there for a while and
then shut-down (reboot). It's been in this loop for last 5 hours.

I discounted all attached devices, like external HD, printer, etc. I have
also tried to reboot from safe mode, etc.; however, it always gets back to
that configuration screen and then reboot itself.

I also have OneCare...

This is serious. Please help...

* Then type F8 and select "Restore my computer"

* A window opens named "Recovery Options"

* Choose "English" and following

* In the next window enter the name and password if
any

* In the main window "Recovery Options", choose the 2nd line
"System Restore" or "System Restore"

* After 2 min window opens System Restore

Re: Vista reboot repeatedly after installing update

my pc is having the same problem with the looping

my problem is that I can't remember my password so I can go into repair. What do I do?

I also do not have a VISTA disk.

This would have worked, unfortunately I don't have a previous restore point. Would it be easier for me to just do a system restore? I just installed Vista and started everything new like 3 days ago, so the only thing I have on there are Firefox and AVG. What should I do?
