My computer has taken a long time to start up for the last week or so. Before the login screen I get the following messages:
1. "Preparing to configure Windows. Do not turn off your computer."
2. "Configuring Windows updates. 0% complete. Do not turn off your computer."
3. "Failure configuring Windows updates. Reverting changes. Do not turn off your computer."
The computer then restarts and I get the same messages again before I get to the login screen. Please can someone tell me how to stop this from happening?
The installation's actually worked now, but I got a message saying that I needed to restart my computer to install some more updates.
When I restarted I got the same messages as before, but without the restarting, so I can start up faster than before, but it's still slow and I'd like to get the updates installed as well. Does anyone have any suggestions?
I've done that but it didn't help. I've also just tried the Windows Update troubleshooter which said it fixed some problems, but I'm still unable to install the updates. Here's a screen dump of my update history:
