During log off/restart it seemed like everything was going fine, until the reconfiguration failed.
It gave a notice that it would revert to previous configuration.
However, it starts a loop of trying to configure updates and failures.
I went to MS Windows Update Troubleshooter and Fix It sites (already had Service Pack 1 from months ago). Trying running all of the diagnostic tools that seemed like they would apply. Afterwards, it appeared that it was starting up fine, but next time I shut down and restarted it did the same thing.
I can do a hard reboot during the configuration loop and it will come up with safe mode / regular start up mode.
About 1/2 the time it will open where I can start a work session.
I've also been regularly using Symantec Endpoint for LiveUpdates for virus scans. Nothing out of the ordinary.
Just a few tracking cookies.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
