I have an HP DV2000 Laptop.
Windows Vista.
I am not exactly sure of the version.

I have been having issues with this laptop for a few months. It usually does do an Automatic Update Loop for an hour or two, but then it usually levels out and stops.

The other day, however, it just started doing an update and has been going for days. I will go into Safe Mode and turn if off when leaving the house, but when I come home at night, I turn it on and it goes again and again for hours and hours.

It will do a screen of a Recommended StartUp, a reboot loop, another screen asking me if I want to do Safe Mode/Safe Mode Command Prompt/Launch Automatically, a reboot loop, and then a system restore screen, and then a reboot loop. And back to the beginning.

Does anyone have any advice?

Using your OS disc, try a Windows Startup Repair. Additional information for the HP laptop is located here.

Have you tried to reset Windows Update Components: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971058?

Run the Fixit: Automatically diagnose and fix common problems with Windows Update . This is applicable for all versions of Vista.
